Where I stayed
Dropped the kids off at mom and dad's by 7:15 or so, and DH and I were off to the airport. The drive went smoothly, and the traffic wasn't too bad. We parked our car in the Economy long term parking (only $7/day--and there is no other longterm parking except at the airport), took the shuttle to the terminal, and checked our bags by 9:30 or so. We had time to get DH the Wall Street Journal and some coffee to keep him occupied while I did some shopping. It's a small, lovely airport, so you can only do so much, but there is just enough to look around and keep *me* occupied. *grin*
Since we had to take Southwest, I insisted we go park ourselves in line. DH just didn't quite get this concept. And the bad thing was that we were in Group B. So I made sure we were first in line for that group, sitting on the floor. Despite the fact that there were about 20 preboard people and a full complement of Group A's, we got good seats. Like row 10 I think. Woot! (See, DH, parking your butt on the floor early on is a GOOD thing). :D
So we were off to the John Wayne Airport...
