Yesterday, the opportunity to fly (yes, all 10 of us) became available. Shift gears, new plan. Now to find a flight from here to there that didn't cost as much as our farm and didn't leave or arrive around midnight.
Four hours later, still looking. Plus we need to rent a 15-passenger van at our destination. Note: Avis & Friends say they do that, but not where we're going.
Finally - success! A flight leaving mid-day that arrives around bedtime. Very do-able!
Wait! Before we confirm lets look at the seating arrangement so we can see what configuration we're getting into. Hmmmmm, what do those different symbols mean? Wait a minute! The little people icon means the seat is taken! There are only 11 empty seats on the entire plane?!
While the thought of walking down the aisle depositing children as we went made Bryan and I double-over with laughter, something tells me that we might be back to driving!
