i'm not good at this...

the other day i had to make a decision which i am not very good at doing because i am fickle like that.  the decision was "to go or not to go" and after much discussion with mr. L i made the decision "to go" last night.  so this morning the kids and i drove 2 1/2 hours to raleigh to catch a flight.
remember my cousin g who came out to visit us in june? well, she and her hubbygave us 4 buddy passes to use so that we can make the treck back west to hang out with them and my little girly cutes.  
it was our first time to fly with buddy passes which meant we were on stand by.  the first leg of the trip to phoenix we got on with no problem.  it was the second leg of our trip to our destination where we came across a couple of minor problems. 
all flights were delayed and the flight we were suppose to get on was almost filled.  however, we hung tight and hung out. at the very last minute of boarding we were told that there was enough room for all 4 of us! so with much delight we eagerly boarded and merrily flew our way to our final destination.

hello, california!  nice to see you again.
it's been a very long day and i am still on east coast time and should have been in bed a long time ago.  i'm pooped!  goodnight!

Glad you decided to go. I've never heard of buddy flights before but am so glad you were able to get flights. We have family staying with us from Ca. right now and will be flying back with them in a couple of weeks. Girl, you are all over the place this summer. How fun!

Aw! Yay! for getting to California! Have a wonderful and relaxing time with family :o)
In Oct, my hubby and I will be using buddy passes to Hawaii to see his family and celebrate with his older brother's 50th! What a blessing buddy passes are!

Blessings & Aloha!
Have a safe and happy July 4th!
If you get any time to pop over, I'd love to share a few of our son's songs that I have on my most current post.
