And the Adventure Begins

It’s 456am and we are camped out in front of McDonalds at terminal C of DFW Airport. My hungry family is waiting not so patiently for them to open. In an hour and 10min we will be boarding our first flight on the first half of our journey to Hawaii.
I tried to get my SPF 110 aerosol sunscreen thru security without being noticed but I guess today’s equipment is too sophisticated for me. I pleaded dumb and even though I batted my eyes at the TSA guy, they still took it. Boo.
McDonalds just opened and I sent the hubs to get nourishment. Forget food, I’m in dire need of coffee after waking up at 315am!
Next stop: LAX!


About dockfam

I’m Jennifer, married to David for nearly 16 wonderful years. We live in the hell-like barren desert of southern US, also known as Texas with our 2 teenagers. I work outside the home full time and I enjoy blogging, reading, cooking and playing guitar and piano. Our family loves to go on family vacations and we have a distinct love of all things Disney related. We would eat rice and beans for dinner for a whole year if it meant we could therefore take a long, fun filled, memory making vacation together. No, we’re not stupid that’s just how we roll. Please connect with me any which way, I'd be delighted to get to know you!

  1. That’s a ridiculously early call. I’m with you on coffee and forget the food.

  2. 3:15 am is a little early for me but if I was leaving for Hawaii I’m sure I would be so excited I’d be awake a lot earlier. :) Hope you guys will all have a great time.

  3. Travel is fun, travel is tough. Will be watching for updates. Have a blast!
