the toilet phone works.

so after about 40 hours of rice-bag-rehab, i turned my phone on last night to find that it works!  hal-le-freaking-lu-jah.  i mean, i had spent those 40 hours convincing myself i could totally live without my iPhone... but the truth is:  i can't.  ok well maybe i could, but life just wouldn't be the same.  so yeah.  it works & i'm pretty happy about it.

experience recap:  rice bags & blow dryers do wonders for toilet-water-soaked-phones, but it's best not to drop them in said toilet in the first place.  now we know.


today is travel day for us.  we have six hours on an airplane until we arrive in maui & i'm praying that parker decides his morning nap should coincidentally be six hours. however, i'm afraid the chances of that are slim so we're armed with books, toys, snacks, sippy cups, & movies.  that ought to get us through the first hour.

despite the nagging feeling like i'm forgetting something {i know i am, it's inevitable}  i think we're ready to do this.  i'm excited.


and if p-ray does decide to be a fuss-bucket on the plane, i'm pretty sure we'll all be fine.  i mean, who could stay mad at this face?

wish us luck.  next time ya hear from me, we'll be coming at ya from maui.  aloha!!

  2. I hear you on the iPhone addiction! I don't know what I'd do without mine. Good luck on your trip! I'm soooooo jealous. Mostly because it is ridiculously cold hear. I hope Parker takes a LONG nap for you. One good thing though -when we flew with Kendall I forgot how loud planes are. With the constant hum of the engines, I didn't feel bad that most of her toys made noise. It deafened them a little bit.

  4. you never know, he might sleep extra long on the plane. wyatt slept all the way to california from the east coast once. i think the plane has a weird effect on babies. who knows? if not, just walk up and down the isles with him. i've seen lots of families do that, and we've even had to do that too.

    have such a good time in hawaii! i'm so stoked for you guys.

  6. YAY! Awesome to hear that your phone is still working!!! I was worried that it could have a serious impact on the amount of P-Ray pictures I get to see (I know, I'm so selfish). Have fun on vacation!!! I CANNOT wait to see pictures :)

  10. Oh my gosh!!! I'm SO jealous!!! You guys will have so much fun in Maui. I hope Parker does well on the plane for you... but if not-- you're right about that face! No one could stay mad :)

  11. I never thought to use a blow dryer and rice bags to bring a helpless phone back to life. I've gone threw 2 or 3 phones that bite the dust from my clumsiness and water lol, so I'll definitely remember this in case something bad ever happens to my current phone.


    Have an awesome time in Maui! Super jealous, I'm sure you all will have so much fun!
    & I hope your little one stays in a good mood during the flight:)

  16. I would not be a happy person if my iPhone was suddenly taken from me.
    I am so excited to hear all about Maui, we have only been to Oahu so far and Maui is on our list to visit. Post lots and lots of photos.
    Have a great time.
