Win A Trip for 4 to Universal Orlando Resort

Universal Orlando Resort

Southwest Airlines is giving you a chance to win a trip for four to Universal Orland Resort.

The prize includes airfare, hotel stay, rental car, park tickets and more.

While I’m not a big fan of theme parks, I think that this would be an amazing prize for a family. Lucas wasn’t a fan of Disney when we visited a few years back but at almost 6 years old, I think that there’s a good chance that he’d really enjoy Universal.

Should there be family sections? Should kids be banned from premium cabins? Are parents doing enough to stop that kid from kicking the seat? Are parents trying there best to stop a baby from crying?

Sometimes a parent can try as hard as possible, but they just can’t get their baby to stop crying.  Continue reading Uncontrollable Crying Baby, Flight Attendant To The Rescue!

Southwest Airlines: Congrats, You Earned Companion Pass- Oops, No You Didn’t!

Southwest Airlines

The last time we flew on Southwest Airlines was at the end of October 2016 for our trip to Portland, Oregon. Lucas and I also took trips to Boise, Idaho and Indianapolis, Indiana over the summer.

These trips were made possible in part thanks to the Southwest Companion Pass. I’ve had the pass two times and Kim has had it once. (My most recent Companion Pass just expired on December 31.)

Yesterday I received a couple of odd e-mails from Southwest Airlines. Continue reading Southwest Airlines: Congrats, You Earned Companion Pass- Oops, No You Didn’t!

A couple of weeks back we headed to Portland, Oregon for a quick visit. This would be Theo’s first time on an airplane at just 7 weeks old!

Here’s some details of what it was like flying with two kiddies for the first time! Continue reading Theo Takes His First Flight at 7 Weeks Old!
