Cade’s first plane ride and trip to Kansas

Last weekend we took a trip out to Kansas City to introduce Cade to his great grandmother and some other awesome family members. Of course going to Kansas City for the weekend meant getting on an airplane with Cade for the first time. I’ll admit that Trey and I were a tad nervous about being “that parent” with a screaming toddler on the plane, but Cade was awesome! We were well prepared with a lot of “new to Cade” snacks and play things. Cade ate so much on the flight out there, that Trey and I were cracking up. The little guy ate a snack cup of nilla wafers, and peanut butter and jelly sandwich, veggie straws, two packs of raisins, and of course biscoff cookies from delta.Needless to say, he didn’t eat dinner when we got there. We were even more impressed with the trip home considering it was right in the middle of his nap and of course he didn’t sleep.  Sweet buddy kept saying “night night” and laying his head down only to pop right back up again.


He was very uncertain about the train ride in the airport.

It wasn’t enough to feed himself. Feeding daddy provided with lots of entertainment as well!

Cade got to meet his baby second counsin? (Trey’s cousin’s daughter), Emma. He was very interested in saying “baby baby” over and over again. Not so interested in Emma when she was actually around.


Uncle Fun got doughnuts, which of coruse was a huge hit!

Very excited about the biscoff cookie. Someone apparently taught him how to say cookie, which surprised Trey and I. He saw it and said “cook cook.” I think I’ve determined that he thinks all words should be one syllable and said at least two times 🙂


Sweet boy with his first delta wings!

We had a great trip and can’t wait to go back to Kansas City!
