Flying with a toddler + Black Friday sale!

Can you believe we are one week away from December 1st?!
Where did November go????
We've been pretty busy this month so I guess that's why it is flying by before my eyes. We just got home from my aunt's wedding in Tennessee last night and had a great weekend celebrating her little family! I am happy to report Hadley did pretty amazing on the plane rides. I wasn't sure how it was going to go now that she's bigger and much more active, but it was a short flight and movies on the tablet definitely helped.
I decided to put together a little round up of our must haves when flying with a toddler in case any of you are planning on traveling with little ones this holiday season!
Vegetables in Underwear // A Christmas Carol : New books are always a great choice for little ones who are getting more and more into reading. Consider bringing one of their favorite stories and one they've never read to keep them entertained. And really, what is more entertaining than vegetables in underwear?
iGuy iPad mini case : It is no secret that iPads and tablets are God's gift to parents when we need some quiet time out of our rambunctious little ones. When Hadley was acting like a wild woman on last night's flight we pulled out the big guns and put Frozen on. It literally was like pressing an "off" button. This case is super fun for the little ones and has a perfect spot for them to hold it on their own.
Chewbeads teether : Our girl has four new teeth breaking through so something for her to chew on is always a must.
Sock monkey : Or any of their favorite stuffed animals/dolls/toys/etc. We brought her sock monkey and baby doll for some cuddle time on the plane and in the hotel while we we're away from home.
Itzy Ritzy reusable snack bag : I always like to travel with some sort of snack on hand for Hadley (and let's be honest here, myself too). These reusable snack bags are prefect for keeping your snacks fresh and mother nature loves them as well! Just don't forget to leave the applesauce packets and other liquids at home.
Boppy pillow : We have loved the boppy since Hadley was an infant but haven't been using it much now that she's such a big girl. We didn't think we'd need it on the plane this weekend so we left it at home. About 30 minutes into each plane ride Josh said, "Next time we gotta bring the boppy." We didn't get Hadley her own seat so she was sitting on our laps. When she started to get sleepy it would have been much easier to lay her across the boppy than trying to hold her in our arms. It will definitely be coming with us to Montana in a few weeks!
