I knew I couldn't bring Lach his flowing lava request, but a coconut I figured would be no sweat.
At the airport, I went to a nice older gentleman at the agriculture scanner and asked him if I could take it. No problem. Yippee, I was so happy. I was going to get cool mom points with the 5 year old!
PS - Our seven year old informed us he likes the dried sugary coconut better.
