Well, I did it! I reserved our air fare to go to Florida on June 6. The problem? Well, I am 36 yrs old and NEVER have been in a plane before! Not only will I be going on a plane for the first time, but I will also be with my 2 little kids. LOL I am nervous as heck! LOL But, excited, too. I have never done this before so it will be an adventure for us all. :)

Well, I've gotta tell ya, there is nothing to worry about! I've flown a LOT, and besides lost luggage have never had a problem. I also used to be an air traffic controller, so I know that you are in good hands from gate to gate. Have fun on your trip, bring lots of stuff to distract the kids with in flight, and don't worry about the flying bit -- that's what the pilots are for! ;D

Well congradulations to you. I hope you have a wonderful time. I have never been on a commercial plane in my life and I have no desire to do so. I am afraid of heights. LOL They would have to sadate me to get me on there. LOL

well don't worry flying is not bad at all the main concern for you will be the kids ... it will probably be a ittle long for them so don't forget to bring toys for them or a game boy or things like that Also don't forget to put your name & address ON and INSIDE all your pieces of luggage ... just in case Oh I would advise that a couple of weeks before you leave to start a run on list of all the things you need to bring or to think about ... it will make the packing up easier and you won't have that uncomfortable feeling of " I know I have forgotten something" oh and of course have fun!! ;-)

WOW! I can imagine your excitedness. Don't worry too much. I just like taking a big bus which run very fast. The only thing you have to note is there will be a change in airpressure and will cause a ear piercing noise in your ear. Try to eat some sweet to channel the problem from your ear. Have a safe flight.

I hope you enjoy your flight. Try to get a window seat as the kids will have their noses pressed to the window. I have flown thousands of times and every time I love it.
