Watching other airplanes = best way to kill time at the airport.
The flight was a direct 3hr flight that also went pretty well. Donovan, Jakki, and I sat in one row, and Zach and Quinn sat across the aisle from us. D's at an age where he's a super chill traveler, especially if you've got a movie for him to watch so that was easy enough. Quinn was a bit more restless, but here Jakki was again awesome and wonderful by playing and walking up and down the aisles with him. The cats meanwhile just hunkered down in their carriers under the seats and didn't utter a meow, probably bc they were scared for their lives.
We arrived in Austin at night. The cats are settled in nicely at my in-laws' house, and we're staying with my mom & Philip. Zach turned around and flew back to SF Sunday evening so he can work this week, then finish packing up our stuff and load up the truck this weekend. The boys are having an awesome time hanging out with the grandparents and other local family, even if we're mostly staying inside thanks to the triple-digit heat.
I was feeling some very strong pangs of sadness in the weeks right before our flight, it was just hitting me how much I'll miss everything we were leaving behind. I even got sad thinking about the last time I'd drive my trusty Fit, which we've had for 3 years and expected to drive for 10+. even now that we're here it really weird thinking that after these few weeks in Austin, we won't be returning to CA but will be moving on to the east coast. Then again, we may very well be back... Zach recently went to an event at a consulting firm in San Francisco and was really drawn to everything there, so we'll see. At this point I know better than to try to speculate or plan anything about where we'll be two years from now. (ps- I don't know why the pictures look so small and crappy when I post them throug this app, if you click on each one they come up larger and look much better... But in-post they look bad. Oh well...)
