Having just taken (today) the Audit and Attestation (AUD) section of the CPA exam, I may have a few pockets of time to do a few posts. I hope the results of the AUD section are better than the previous two sections I took!
So back to our Disney trip.
Both Sarah and I were stressed about flying to Disney this time, given this would be our first time flying with the girls. And, since renting three car seats can be costly, and there would be no guarantee of getting three when we arrived at the airport in Orlando, we decided to take our (new and pricey) car seats with us.
Sarah had heard horror stories of car seats getting beat-up bad when checked-in, so we planned to take them on the plane and have the girls sit on them. We had no idea how that would work - how do you get three car seats from our van (which we needed to park at the airport) gate? From the gate on to the plane? Along with the two strollers and carry-on bags? How 'bout getting the car seats (and the six suitcases) from the baggage claim in Orlando to our rental car? Remember, it was me (the one guy) and Sarah, three 5 year-olds, and Sarah's mom.
We arrived to the airport well in advance. And our stresses over the car seats were pretty much wiped away by the super-courteous JetBlue agents at the check-in counter. Thank you! They convinced us (mostly Sarah, actually) to check-in the car seats - telling us it would be much less of a hassle. And JetBlue offers a no-fee check-in of car seats. Again, thank you!
Here's some clips from our first 24 hours of vacation:
