Leaving on a jet plane

Today starts my son and my adventure to California. Yes, we're leaving dad behind to work and we're headed down for pre-wedding festivities. Another flight to California happens in another few hours. Hoping for good results again. To date Ace has been on six different flights and has done wonderfully on all of them. He's a good traveler. I'm hoping that it will continue to trend in that direction.

My issue at the moment is the fact that I am carrying luggage about double my weight and mass wise it exceeds me by 3xs. I have the largest suitcase I own full to the gills, but hopefully less than 50lbs otherwise they're going to charge me $50 extra dollars on top of the $15 I already paid! Eek! THEN I have the 'diaper' bag that is an oversized shoulder bag in order to stuff the extra baby-needs in it. Then I have another wheeling bag to carry on that has the laptop and all the other electronic bits. Then I have Ace's backpack of toys. Finally I have Ace in his carseat that will wheel to the gate. It's insane. MADNESS. I've done it before but everything was on just that much smaller of a scale.

We'll see how it goes! :)
