Day 13: Red and Gold

Sorry for the delay in yesterday’s post…I really had no time. On Saturday we decided last minute to buy tickets to the 49er football game on Sunday. How could we pass that up when we were going to be landing in San Francisco at 11:45am? We were slightly hesitant, as we didn’t know how tired we were going to be, but we decided to bite the bullet as we wouldn’t have another opportunity like this for the rest of the season.

It was really sad saying good by to Rebekkah and the girls. We had such a great visit with them that I didn’t want it to end. Rebekkah really is the hostess of all hostesses!

Overall our flight was pretty bad. We found out when we got there that we would not be sitting next to each other. I’m not sure how that happened as we bought our tickets at the same time. When I was given the chance to chose my seats there were only 10 to choose from. When did all the other passengers get to choose their seats? As far as I know, the airline did not allow for pre-online boarding. It’s bad enough when you have to sit by one person you don’t know, but two? John had this really tall guy next to him who was in his area…granted the dude didn’t have a choice, but still that stinks. I had two younger guys next to me which was fine, except I had two little boys behind me who were totally rambunctious. They were SO loud and constantly kicking my seat and playing with the table. I was happy that the dad was at least trying to make them behave, but it didn’t seem to make a difference. I could not get any sleep because of the kids and John wasn’t able to sleep much either. Unfortunately this resulted in us being pretty tired for the rest of the day and the game. However we were still able to have fun.The 9ers really aren’t that good this year and it was not an easy game to watch. (WAY too many penalties). We decided to leave early to avoid the traffic and the game went into overtime and the 9ers did win, so that is good.

One more photo of the sky on our way home. It was gorgeous!Now back to reality. How much longer do we have until Thanksgiving break?

Kicking the seat is the worst! You just want to reach around and strangle the kid! Or their parents.

Wow that sky photo is unbelievable! Gorge.
Also, when you purchase plane tickets you can sometimes go online if you're have a FF mile number and log into your account to select your seats. Most airlines let you do this right after you've purchased your tix. That's probably how you guys got screwed--everyone else had selected their seats online!
