|Claire's backpack from the front. The red is a ribbon to help open the zipper.|
|Dora's matching backpack|
|Alex's backpack. I LOVE how it turned out.|
|This is the top zipper of the backpack. I'm quite proud of how it turned out. I got the airplanes lined up perfectly and it only took two tries. =)|
|And the straps. Again, I had to carefully position the pattern to get the airplanes.|
I'm really hoping these work out. They look a little large in the photos, but they really fit the kids well. I'm hoping to put all the toys and maybe snacks for the kids in their backpacks for the flight, that way my bag is free for oh I don't know...my stuff?? In a way, I'm really looking forward to this flight/trip. I'm actually contemplating NOT taking the double stroller. I haven't decided on that yet though. I may chicken out and take it "just in case". But we haven't really used it in a while. Alex and Claire are pretty good about walking wherever we go, and we don't have any long excursions planned that I know of. It's not THAT far from the gate to the planes in St Louis. It's just Phoenix that might be trouble.
