A few weeks ago Daddy had to take a trip to San Francisco for business. This was the first time my younger kids had been to the airport, so it was very exciting for them.
We were able to watch Daddy's plane take off and then land again 5 days later. For quite a few days afterwards, my 2-year-old daughter would assume that Daddy was up in the sky in an airplane any time that he was away from home.
The airport adventures were fun for our kids and gave us a good excuse for a "field trip." But we were all so glad to have Daddy back home after his trip!
