Airport Security Rant

Be forewarned...this story is SCARY!!

So we went on a trip...and went through the normal hassles of security. We were given a strict lecture about using gallon sized plastic bags instead of quart sized bags. I had to run a small bottle of lotion back to the car (it was too big!) and made to stand in line to have my id checked again after running out to the car (in a super long line...) Anyway, normal annoying airline behavior...

The other part of the story begins at home...where we don't have a gun or baseball bat for any random intruders that might come in our house. Instead we have a machete. No, I am not kidding - we have a machete...here it is...



So when we moved, instead of putting the machete back in the side of our bed, it went in the closet...

If you have not put two and two together...this is the point to become scared...

We reached our hotel in DC started unpacking and guess what was in the bottom of my carryon? You guessed it...a machete. Made it through airport security (even though my lotion didn't) without a backward glance. Incase you didn't get a good enough look...here it is again...straight through airport security...SCARY!


...on a good note...our bed was SO nice in the hotel...


Another very happy note were the gorgeous flowers everywhere :) There are more photos HERE and event photo from the trip HERE if you're interested!
