In our days as just a couple, we would have parked ourselves at some restaurant at the airport and killed time by watching tv or something. Now that we have kids, we HAD to get out of the airport for everyones sanity. We talked with the lady at the info desk and the Firetruck Museum down the road seemed like a great option! So, we went out to the taxi stand, and to drive the 2 miles it would cost $27 one way. No way!
So, we rented a car for the afternoon. The next flight was 4:35pm so we had a good couple hours to kill.
Not 3 minutes into the car ride, here is what happened:
to keep the kids napping (always a good thing) Steve parked the car at a mall. He was looking at our flight options...and I went shopping
We drove down Airport Road, or something like that, to kill time and saw some neat fly-bys. One was a cargo plane and the other was a fighter jet. Then we headed off to the Firetruck Museum.
We got back to the airport for the 4:35p flight, only to find it delayed 2 hours due to the crew.
