My weekend

This weekend Allan and I got to meet our new nephew Aidan and visit my brother and sister-in-law. It started out rocky...we got off the preflight parking van and Allan realized he left his phone on it. Uh-oh! So he was crabby and pissed and wanting to stand there and wait till the guy came back around, keep in mind there are about 3 drivers and they only go to drop off passengers when they have someone flying out on that airline, so we very well could have been waiting all night. I came up with the BRILLIANT idea of going to the pick up area and wait for him there- which worked and he got his phone back. I am such a wonderful wife, I know. I was really happy our trip didn't begin on a sour note and that he found his phone, so off to our flight...well, then we find out our flight was delayed....and kept getting later and later as we sat and waited. Finally we boarded with a 5 hour delay on Spirit Airlines. Have I mentioned how crappy spirit is?? Yes, they sometimes have cheap fares, but their customer service is TERRIBLE, their planes are dirty and if you notice the crowd they attract is not the best either. Everyone was either pissed off or drunk by the time our plane left and the flight attendants were RUDE, that it was just not a good experience. I said I would never fly again and I mean it- well, unless the fare is incredibly, incredibly cheaper than Delta and it is a very short trip. We finally got to Florida and got to meet our new nephew...How cute is he!!!

It was sooo nice getting to meet him and visiting my brother and sister-in-law. We left bright and early Monday morning and once again, we had a delay, only an hour this time, thank goodness. We got to Atlanta, picked up our car and went to pick up our pups. Then, we came home and took a family nap, woke up and went to my dad's house to celebrate Allan and my sister's birthday with a cookout. Allan felt soooo special getting all the son-in-law and brother-in-law cards, it really made me happy!
