    How fun is that? I can just see Morgan and Paige batting their little eyelashes, nudging right into the pilot’s heart. What a precious shot.

    I absolutely love your pictures! May I ask what kind of camera you are using? (Although I am sure the photographer has a lot to do with the quality, too!)

    I love the photo of the girls in the cockpit. When we travelled to Hawaii this year the pilots kindly allowed my son in the cockpit too.
    He wasn’t as keen as the girls. Great memories and well done travelling with three children:)

    Glad you are home safely. I sure hope those pilots didn’t fall asleep on their flight! How much fun for them and I’m glad JM was a great traveller! Can’t wait to hear about your trip!

    How adorable is that picture of the girls “piloting” the plane?!?!? Cute! It sounds like the plane ride was rather uneventful- which is just perfect for a plane ride.

    I think you should have “photoshopped” some clouds in the cockpit windows so it looked like the girls were actually flying the plan! It would have given your readers a little “thrill” (or maybe mini-heart attacks!)….

    Can’t wait to hear about your trip! Looks like the gals had fun!

    Glad you all are home safe and sound…ask the girls if their plane is available in the next couple of weeks. I’d love for them to fly me far, far away. Will you see if they can make that happen? And I’ll even take JM with me so he can keep my nice and warm in flight. Oh, and I’m not big on the peanuts so if they can stock up on lots of chocolate instead, that would be great. Can’t wait to hear all about your trip!!

    I am so glad you made it safe with Pilots Stickler in control of the cockpit. I love you and your rovers.
    Marla came over this morning to kiss on Sloane and said “wait til her Mommasissy gets a hold of her! She’s gonna flip!”
    love you,

    Yay!! I was hoping this post would be up! I am so happy the trip went well…I knew the kids would do great! Backpacks with “stuff” and little DVD players ROCK!

    Great pictures! (i have taken MANY pictures during takeoff! oops!)

    Darby! Next time you are in Chicago you MUST let me know. I would love, love, love to see you and your adorable little ones!

    What an amazing photographer you are. I need to take some lessons from you. I just broke my camera the other day. So much for my skills! 🙂

    So glad you guys had a great time. It kinda makes me want to take a trip to Chicagoland. By the way you are an excellent storyteller. You had me completely drawn in. God bless!

    I LOVE your style of photography. I have only one child, Jackson, who is one month younger than John Martin and I do not know for the life of me how you get those amazing shots, I have the same camera and don’t compare…… and you have THREE beautiful children. Your blog is an inspiration. I am a working attorney mom and you inspire me to be creative and crafty in my free time with my husband and son:)
