Daves Adventure....Literally

Dave getting ready to board plane!
Where to begin... Dave has flown, hundreds of times, but never alone! So when Aunt Sara and Uncle Jeff called and offered to buy his ticket to fly him to Ohio (where they spend their leave in the summer) So we agreed trying to cut the cord was easier said than done. I was NOT thrilled at all about a layover, I kept telling everyone I wasn't thrilled and everyone kept telling me he's not a baby he's 16, he'll be fine.......... Can I just tell you Jody had ever right to worry!! My son called me to tell me, that he was stuck OVERNIGHT in Minnesota!! I about had a heart attack, in fact thankfully Dave of all of us was calm, cool and collected...he did a great job, checked into his hotel, did 3 layovers and finally made it to Ohio. I am so proud (as is his dad) but still have to tell you, next summer, One layover Only! :)

Dave, Aunt Sara, and Uncle Jeff! Dave, Oakley and Hunter at the lake

WOW I bet you were freaking out!!! good for him for doing so great! I bet being 16 and staying alone over night he probably thought it was cool! not so much for mom though huh?! looks like he had a great time!
