The Plane Home
We made good time to the Philadelphia airport and returned the car. Unfortunately, our flight was delayed by two hours which meant another three hours waiting in the airport. The kids did very well under the circumstances and we finally boarded the plane around eight o'clock. Porter slept again most of the flight and Alice did almost as well. We got the bulkhead again and despite the flight being practically empty, people still sat next to a baby and a toddler while whole rows lay empty in the back. Eventually, they figured out they could stretch out in back though Sarah had to actually suggest it to the woman who sat next to her. We got into Oakland about midnight, which was three a.m. Pennsylvania time, exhausted but happy to be home.
