A Great Time Was Had By All

Hubby Tony, Son Donald, and I just returned from a wonderful trip to California to visit Son Brian and DIL Nicole.  And, to make the visit even more special, during part of the time Son Tony and his girlfriend Ie were able to be there, too!

Last Thursday afternoon we loaded up the car and headed for the airport.  Because the past few weeks the story du jour has been long lines to get through the TSA security checkpoints, we allowed extra time.  Of course, that insured we breezed through and had way too much time at the gate.  While we waited, we ate dinner, charged up the electronics, and people watched.

The men shared one large suitcase.  I brought one that I could potentially carry on, but chose to pay the $25 to check it.  Of course, that meant that at the gate they announced they needed people to gate check their bags for free, but it was nice not to have to fight for an overhead bin.

Our 4 1/2 hour flight got into San Francisco right on time.   After we got our bags Brian and Nicole were waiting for us.  And so the adventure began.

  1. Oh, that is annoying! But it sounds like a good trip! :)

  2. for some reason I didn't think you had to do security checks within the same country. How lovely to have a family adventure!
