Bumped, not once, but twice

On the way home from our cruise we were flying out of the Houston airport.  Our plane was over booked so Kirt went up and told them he would be bummed.  They said they needed 2 people so Kirt and Garret decided to stay in Houston.  I had to work and Tanner wanted to get back for baseball and Katie was just ready to be home.  At the last minute they approached us and said they really needed to bump one more person.  So Kirt told them they could bump Katie.  Katie was so upset.  I could hear her crying as Tanner and I are walking down the landing to board the plane.  She survived and the 3 of them hung out at the mall and went to a movie.  They gave them a free hotel that night and $800 a piece in airline vouchers.  They got up the next morning and flew to Salt Lake.  In Salt Lake they needed to bump 2 more people so Kirt and Garret stayed in Salt Lake for the day and Katie flew home alone.  For staying in Salt Lake for the day Garret and Kirt got another $1000 in airline credits a piece.  So in total they got $4400 in airline credits.  Thanks to Kirt and the kids, we have our spring break trip paid for next year!

Kirt and Garret at Temple Square.

 Kirt ran into his friend Chase Nielson

 The lady giving the tour at the conference center wanted to hire Garret because he really knew his stuff.
