The first of many firsts

Today was Zachary's first plane ride! We planned a trip to southern California to visit Jen's extended family. We had some Southwest tickets we needed to use (compliments of our frequent flights to see each other when Dustin was working in Boise for a year) and Southwest has a direct flight from Salt Lake to LAX airport! We were worried how this flight would one likes to sit next to a baby on a plane. Well, we were surprised to find out when we were boarding the plane that it was less than half full! So we got our own row (thank goodness!). Zach had a great time! He drank a bottle on the way up and then fell asleep for about 45 minutes. Then he woke up and "played" for the last 45 minutes of the flight. The funniest was he watched Dustin listen to his ipod and grabbed one of the ear Dustin put it in his ear to see what he would do. The kid started dancing! He loved listening to music with his dad! Then when we landed at LAX he couldn't stop looking out the window at all the other planes and cars on the runways at the airport. He loved his first flying experience! As for the flight home.....he actually SLEPT the entire flight and woke up when he got in the car at Salt Lake to drive home. I guess we couldn't have asked for a better experience!
