The Grubb’s family checks-in at Terminal 1 on Friday ahead of a family vacation.

This weekend begins the "fun" season for many folks. It’s vacation time. Memorial Day Weekend is the kickoff of summer. Lambert-St. Louis International and others airports will see an increase in passenger traffic with the prime summer travel months ahead. At Lambert, lots of parents could be seen this Friday lugging child carriers, car seats and helping children with their backpacks. We caught up with the Grubbs family with children ages 4,6 and 9. They were heading out to Washington DC’s Reagan National Airport. On the flip side, St. Louis will be welcoming its fare share of families and tourists ready to see all that the Gateway City has to offer this season.
