Flipping the calendar back to October… Sage and I flew to the East Coast to visit her Aunt Emily, my youngest sister, over a long weekend. Emily and Jess were great hosts even giving Sage and I the master bedroom of their apartment–complete with elliptical trainer (broken), private bathroom, and cable TV. Sage was a great traveler, sleeping much of the time as we flew from Portland to Chicago and then to Dulles. Phew!
The weekend was relaxing and fun as we got to meet and hang out with Emily and Jess and their friends. We hit a pumpkin patch, checked out Old Town Alexandria, hiked at Great Falls National Park, watched Emily’s team–the Dallas Cowboys–on Sunday night football, saw the AOL campus where Emily works, did an Insanity workout, hung out on the rooftop of their apartment building (which had an awesome view of DC), and just chilled together.
The return flight was just as good and Sage was a star. We flew Southwest and I could see people making the distinct choice not to sit by me as they saw a baby in lap. It was a relief that she did so well and made friends with everyone around her (think we have a social girl on our hands).
