Captain Connor

I once shared how Connor is a traveling pro. He has been every where and I mean every where. To date, CJ has traveled close to 18,000 miles to be exact. While I try to document the highs and lows of our travel, one of my favorite moments is when Connor was given the chance to hang out in the cockpit of our plane during our trip to IL in May. 


As we boarded the plane, our flight attendant waved to Connor and introduced him to the captain and co-captain. The captain (holding Connor here) asked if we would like to grab a photo of Connor "flying" the plane. Of course, we would love that! Connor instantly grabbed the steering wheel (is that what it's called on a plane?), all the while smiling from ear to ear.

I've joked that Connor has earned his wings already thanks to us traveling so often. He might have a few years still before that could really happen but on this particular day, sharing the seat with the captain was enough to make our little guy happy.

    1. It was US Airways. We have flown tons, as you know, and no one has ever offered Connor to be "captain". I was so thrilled that they let us.

  4. Very cool! He is lucky. I tried doing this for Maddy on Frontier when we flew a couple of months ago and they were so frigid about it. I mean, really? A two year old is a threat?? LOL. Good times!

    1. I thought so. Too bad I didn't have time to get my DSR out.
