Because of the delay the airline gave us vouchers to eat at the food court. For some reason they gave us four $16 vouchers. So we had $64 to eat. The catch is you don't get change for the voucher so you have to figure out the best way to spend the "money". Our first stop The Red Rooster. The crazy thing is we had been wanting to try this place out but had never gotten around to it until we got to the airport.......right before we went through customs. So we payed for it ten minutes before we got some for free. One of the things we got was chips and gravy. Ezra liked the gravy so much that he dipped everything in it.......including his fists!
These ice cream bars looked really good but like I said before we had to use one whole voucher at a time or loose it. So we got two ice cream bars and some drinks for later.
After a LONG delay of miming and eating it was finally time to say......
Now for the plane ride home......
We did not want to have the same experience we had one the way over so we resorted to give Ezra something to help him sleep. Several people in Australia recommended the same product so we thought we would try it. We gave Ezra some the night before to make sure he wouldn't have any problems and he was fine. We had only tried a half dose. On the plane we gave a whole dose........BIG MISTAKE! Ezra was nice and drowsy but he had nightmares and would wake up every twenty minutes fussing and or shaking.....poor guy!!!
So after a long flight we made it to LA. Then we had to drive the rest of the way home. There was problems getting a connecting flight to Vegas so it just ended up working better to rent a car and drive the rest of the way. All of this would have gone A LOT better if ONE: We got sleep on the plane and TWO: if we would have arrived in LA at our original time. Because of the five hour difference in time we then hit LA TRAFFIC! Our car trip was long and Ryan was doing it on NO sleep. Over THIRTY HOURS of no sleep!!!
Thankfully we made it home safely worn and weary but with AMAZING memories that we will NEVER forget!!!
