We are here….ahhhhhh

Well we have arrived in Punta Cana!  It is beautiful, just like in November when we visited.  Our trip here had its adventures to say the least.  To begin mom and dad arrived in DFW on Sunday night.  Chris and I got to take dad to dinner for Father’s day which was a nice treat.  On Monday we had big plans to wrap up some last minute trip/wedding needs.   We were checking things off our list when around 1 I received an email from American Airlines.  Your flight on Tuesday, June 22 at 7:00 am has been CANCELLED!!! WHAT!!!  Of course I began freaking out a little…I mean if we can’t make our first flight we will miss our Miami flight to Punta Cana.  Also we are meeting my sister and family in Miami for the 2nd flight to help with bags and kiddos.  YIKES!!!!

After oh an hour or more on the phone with AA we realized we had to leave for Miami TONIGHT in order to make that 2nd flight with Abby and the kiddos…..So long story short we quickly began packing up our car and headed out for the airport for our NOW 7:00 pm flight to Miami.  Of course we had to find a hotel close to stay over night….and that sucked because we didn’t want to have to move baggage around like that.  I mean we have 6 large bags and 3 carryon bags and a WEDDING DRESS!!!  Once we arrived in Miami it was now a task to find a cab LARGE enough to hold our entire stash of bags and such.  We found a minivan…and literally squeezed in.  Then we arrived to our room that was thought to be a suite with a fold out bed!!!  Please note that this was not the case!! However it was a place to rest and that is all that we need. 



Tuesday morning mom, dad, and I loaded up and headed back the airport.  Once we got there we meet up with my sister and her family.  Then we all got to enjoy the Miami airport together!  They got to enjoy sitting with all the bags and dress! After a nice little 1 hour 45 minute flight we arrived!!

This is just a small look at the amount of bags we had brought with us.  We had between the 2 groups 15 large bags, and about 8 carryon bags and a wedding dress!  It took 3 sweet men to also figure out how to get it too our ride, and in our ride!  Yikes…we made it! Now we have take over our wonderful room!!  Meet with Miguelina the wedding coordinator and the videographer!  Check ready to enjoy the beach….
