My mom and I just booked our flights to visit my brother in July. It's cheaper to fly down in the summer but it's still an expensive flight due to having to fly into a teeny tiny airport. Luckily I was able to use points to cover a good chunk of the flight. Derek will stay home in Boston with Bosco and hold down the fort.
All I can say is thank God my brother has central air. I'm a delicate flower in the heat, well that's if flowers got heat exhaustion easily.
