We're home!

Wow, what a weekend!!! Let me start off by saying that we will NEVER fly using Southwest Airlines ever again! All 17 of us flew out of Islip Airport in Long Island on Thursdays and arrived in Chicago at Midway Airport. My sister in law, Eileen, and her husband's 2 suitcases, missing and NEVER arrived for the whole weekend. They had to go out and buy clothes for the wedding (which they were reimbursed for) and then yesterday, lets see.... finding out that one of Eileen's bags had been found in Florida, my other sister in law, Kerry's boyfriend's luggage not arriving with his flight, my brother in law, Christopher (THE GROOM'S) luggage not making it to their honeymoon destination and to top it off, they lost Joey's carseat!!! Keep in mind, on the way home, there was 3 different flights and on each flight, someone lost luggage. And I wouldn't have been so mad about our's, but come on, a car seat?! Thankfully, they had loaner carseats so we were able to go home and also thankfully, Joey's carseat was found by the time my in-laws flew in last night so they were able to bring his carseat home with them and Southwest Airlines is going to pay to have the loaner carseat FedEx'ed back to them.

Besides our mishaps with the airline, we all had a wonderful weekend! The wedding was wonderful, I love weddings!! And the reception was a blast! Joey got so much attention that he was so tired by the time we left. I took so many pictures, 213 to be exact! So I'll only post a few...


My two boys waiting for the wedding to start, aren't they handsome?!

Those photos are precious! I love that tiny askew tie. So sweet. My daughter who flies a lot says she hates southwest too. Glad you made it home safe and sound, take care!

I've been lurking here a while, but I couldn't resist leaving a comment today! That last picture of Joey just melts my heart. Too Cute! He looks so grown up with his little tie on. My 13 month old son will not leave a tie on for anything. Glad you finally got your car seat back.

It was a pleasure to meet you and all of the family, and to have you here for the wedding. Super pictures. And one of the neatest things? No matter who was holding Joey, his face just lit up when he saw you coming!

Thank you so much for sharing all the pictures. They are the first ones I have really seen. I thought the one of Chris and Steph was beautiful so I printed it and took it to work to show off the cute couple. Thanks so much for coming to the wedding and taking the time to take such excellent pictures...Joey should be a model..that last pic of him on the blog is precious beyond words.
