Family Bucket List Series. Vol. 1. Issue 11

Day 9

On our last morning of vacation, we ate breakfast in the room and the checked our bags through to the airport at the hotel valet (Great service!) This gave us a couple of hours to explore Madame Toussaud’s Wax Museum. It was silly and fun. We took tons of photos with “famous” wax models, including President Barack Obama, Tiger Woods, Marilyn Monroe, Elvis, Evel Kneival, Shaq, MJ, Whoopie Goldberg, and more. One stop for gelato, and then off to the airport.

When I packed-up, I carefully removed Thing 2’s snow globes from the bags to be checked, afraid they might break if mishandled by the baggage crew. Little did I know, snow globes are a hazard! Security would not let them through in our carry on bags.

As I was unwilling to abandon the souvenirs, Thing 2 so painstakingly picked out, I sent the family to the gate, left the secured area, and took the backpack with the globes to baggage check. Then, I waited in line to go through security, for a second time. Forty-five minutes later, I was able to join Hubby and the boys at the gate. I hope the snow globes make it in one piece!

We’re about to land. Vacation’s over!
