AirTran Airways Overbooking Fail At Akron Canton Airport

AirTran Plane

As I said in a previous post I had a couple of things happen recently that were less then stellar from a customer service perspective.  Unfortunately this one took place at my favorite airport in the world Akron Canton (CAK).  Thankfully, it had really nothing to do with the airport, and everything to do with poor customer service from AirTran Airways. The family and I recently went on what has become our yearly trip to Naples, … Continue reading

Beer Shots – Kicking Back In Naples

Beer Shots Naples

As I was going through the hard drive today I realize I’m falling WAY behind on the Beer Shots that I’ve taken… so… here’s one! This was pretty much a perfect afternoon.  Sitting on the lanai (a covered outdoor porch for those of you that don’t know) with my feet propped up having a beer.  I love vacation.

Yep… This Kid Is Cool

C Sleeping

So last night, we finally had C-Man’s birthday party (we’d celebrated on his actual birthday when we were on vacation in Florida back in March).  I was going through the hard drive this AM and realized that I’ve got quite a few AWESOME pics of the big man so I just had to share them!  It’s been FAR too long since I’ve done a C-centric post! As I mentioned, we took our yearly trip to … Continue reading

THE Disney Pic

On The Way Out Of Disney

So Disney World has a pretty awesome thing these days called the PhotoPass.  Essentially, they give you this card that you carry around the park with you and present to the Disney photographers when they take your picture.  Then, when you get home, you can view all of the magical Disney pics that you’ve taken while you were there.  Unfortunately, we didn’t realize just how cool this was (or really what it was) until we … Continue reading

When You Wish Upon A Star…

The Whole Gang In Florida

I reviewed recently the beginning of my vacation to Naples which didn’t start all that great.  So now that I’ve had a couple of days to decompress here’s the blow by blow rundown of our vacation. This is taken directly from the “couldn’t make this shit up if I tried” file… Thursday: After a long day at work I was super excited to get down to Florida and see my wife and kids.  Naturally, my … Continue reading

Circumcision By Toilet Seat

Shark Toilet Seat

Attention guys: this is going to hurt just to read it… you’ve been warned. I just got back from our yearly trip to Naples, Florida (more on that to come).  I was delayed getting out of Cleveland so I didn’t get in to Naples until around 2:15 AM on Wednesday (huge thanks to my father-in-law for picking me up).  Obviously the boys were sleeping so I didn’t get to see them that night.  The next … Continue reading

Chicken Fingers & Pasta To The Rescue

The Kid Leash

It’s been a while since I’ve said a whole lot about the boys so I figured today was as good a day as any.  A couple of weeks back we took our yearly trip to Naples, Florida.  The wife went down about 10 days before I did and then I went down, spent a few days and then we all came back together.  Normally we have GREAT weather but this year it was unseasonably cold … Continue reading
