Back from Vegas. The morning was filled with a lot of Nic pacing and being eager to go. My morning was filled with a lot of watching Nic pace and not wanting the morning to end.
We took some more photos together. This is what I do. If the dog were to sneeze adorably I’d be looking around for my camera. I drive Nic crazy, I know I do – but he was a good sport about my many picture requests and video requests – until we reached the airport and by that time he was giving me the celebrity glare.
Then I became the annoying photog at the airport
The airport ‘people-delivery’ is a lot different than I remember. There is no drawn out ‘good-bye’ time as non-ticket holders are not allowed past the security check points anymore. No hugging as they board. No watching the plane take off from the boarding area.
So it’s say “good-bye” and watch your loved one approach the x-ray machine and strip search/body cavity probe area. Okay, I exaggerate, but there WAS a full body x-ray machine thingy!
It’s hard to be sad when you know something wonderful is awaiting the person you love. I’m too excited for him to be sad.
Then I get home and my boy posted some photos of his own. One of food, lol and then this one:
The caption he put was “Our plane! :)”
I think he’s excited. And considering his plane took off almost an hour ago – I’m sure he’s already acquainted himself with all the buttons, gadgets, bathroom locations and has already had his tray in the upright and down position. LOL.
I said to Nic on the way:
“Isn’t it funny? Months ago we were on this same road, but going the other direction – talking about how you wanted to go to England and how amazing it would be if you could go. And here we are on our way … you with a passport and a ticket. You see, anything is possible.”

Dreams come true.
**Update!** I forgot to mention the most important part! I snuck a little something in his case … He can’t possibly go to England without a naked mole rat. Debauchery Soup is represented! 😉
