How to Survive a 6 Hour Layover

Of all the traveling we did too and from Tulsa, I was most worried about the 6 hour layover. Lilypad Princess really surprised me though, she was wonderful for the entire layover and it passed much more quickly than I expected. So for anyone else who might find themselves with a long layover, here are Lilypad Princess's tips for surviving a 6 hour layover.

Such great ideas! I love the portable dollhouse...very clever.

I'm so glad you like your portable doll house LP Princess. I think that a 2 year old who can stay busy for a 6 hour layover is a Very Mature Two Year Old ... and has a fantastic Mommy who knows how to keep her baby happy!
Congrats to both of you, Nana

Looks like she passed the time nicely! I don't think I would have done that well! :)

Looks like you managed very well. Great ideas. Is that a private lounge? That sounds much nicer than an open terminal where Buby surely would run up and down the aisles all day.

No, that was just in the terminal. It was at the end of one long walkway where you could turn right or left, but there were a bunch of tables in front of the window. There were a couple rows of chairs that she did run up and down alittle, but she wasn't far away and the chairs were empty because it was an unused gate so I could let her run.
