New Port without the kids!

What a fun time I had in New Port with my mom and dad.  We had so much fun doing next to nothing.  All I wanted to do was to sit on the beach and listen to the waves, read my book and eat lots of fish!  The funnest thing happend on the way to New Port.  I was standing in this long line to check in and was hoping I wouldn't be late.  This Delta worker said if we were leaving from gates D or E (which I was)  we were to to go to the next building where they would be able to check us in faster. I had no idea that there was another check in point. Well I hopped out of line and whipped right over there. My big carryon bag went though just fine then came my purse, but I did have one more bag with me tote bag with my scrapbooking things in it, not too much stuff but glue and tape and scissors. What was I thinking Scissors??!! The security guard said mamm I need to see your scissors. I told him I’m so sorry I didn’t even think about bring a dangerous pair of scissors, when I was concerned about my eye makeup remover! He made a big show about the scissor and I started packing up and putting on my shoes when from across two checks in points he yells hey lady wait you might be able to still take them with you! WhAt??!!!?? He then processed to measure them and sure enough they are only 4 inch. Long that means I get to take those sharp long scrapbook scissors on the plane with me. I don’t get it you can only use 5in scissors as a weapon? The 4 in won’t work? Yet I can’t take my tinny pocket knife because that blade is only 1 1/2 long huummmm!

Needless to say when I got there I had a wonderful time looking for sea glass on the beach eating till I was sick and sleeping with my mom because my dad snores so loud he had to have the spare bedroom! We watched the Olympics till midnight shopped at cute fun stores in Laguna and ate at the Crab Cooker twice. I just love my parents they are so generous and good to me! Now If I could talk them into paying for my plane ticket next time JK.

OK so on the way back to SL I left my scissors and hand sanitizer with my mom to bring home and guess what they stopped me because I had a snow globe!!! Less that 2oz. of water but the catch was that it was sealed and they couldn’t test it for whatever they test it for. So I called my dad and told him to get Britton another one, he got off the freeway and came back to get it. I had to have an escort out the doors because it was and illegal substance, I think flying is not my cup of tea! Next time it looks like a road trip

That's funny about the airport. Last time we flew to Florida, we came home to discover that we had traveled through 2 airports (twice each) with two pairs of sharp scissors and....2 cans of soda. We were even screened with the "sniffing machine" and they went through our luggage. Apparently, they didn't look thouroughly. We weren't trying to smuggle anything, we truly just forgot that those things were in our carry-on bags.

You know I hear that Morman women are really undercover terrorists in most cases; they're on to you! Scrapbooking materials and all; that was just the funniest story. Sounds like you had a great time!
