7 hours later...

...we are in our apartment in Barcelona.

We left our apartment in Morges at 4:45 this morning to catch our 7:05 flight. The airport was packed with people. I don't think I've ever seen it that busy. We used our gold status to use the first class check in line, which probably saved us over an hour. The security line was very long as well, and they didn't have an express lane or a process for people with three kids to go to the front of the line.

We made our flight with minutes to spare.

Rowan, Niamh, and I sat on one side of the aisle and Emily and Muriel were directly across from us. Right before we took off the flight attendant came over and said that Muriel had to sit on the other side of the aisle, as the A321 has 4 oxygen masks on the right side of the aisle and 3 on the left. Emily was not impressed with having to sit with three kids. (I couldn't, as Muriel was going to want to eat.)

The flight took about 70 minutes and was fairly unexciting. The kids were each given a cheap toy from the airline to play with.

More on our arrival after I get Muriel to sleep.
