We made it

Just so you know-we made it home! The trip home was pretty uneventful, except we sat on the tarmac in Houston in a hot 747 for over three hours while the hydraulic system was being repaired. Comforting, eh? I don't know why they didn't cool the back of the plane, or why the flight attendants didn't take it upon themselves to serve some drinks while we waited-arghh!!! I was joking with the kids that those in First Class on the upper level were probably getting ice cream sundaes while we waited (remember that Seinfeld episode?). It was probably true.

Sorry about the lack of posting. It was hard to visit everyone and then finagle some time on their computer, too. Pedicures, shopping, museum visiting, seeing the Texas State Capital and my fav UT campus, eating, hugging friends and family, playing, go-carting, feeding mosquitoes, miniature golfing, seeing the county fair, playing outside, mailing boxes to ourselves, swimming and sleeping took a priority this past month. We also spent quite a bit of time on the road driving around everywhere! We clocked over 2000 miles on that van rental!!!

Allen is upstairs right now uploading pictures. What a guy!

Updates are coming. Promise.

Jet lag hit me earlier....maybe it will come back and I can sleep well tonight. See ya soon.

5 fabulous friends:

I'm glad you made it back safe. What did you do to keep your kids entertained for three hour? Holy crap! That is a nightmare.

Looking forward to pictures!

LiteralDan- Jet lag and a little sleep aid---ahhh....sleep.

Bilary- Thankfully, Logan slept, and then Nicholas and Ashlyn fell asleep. They were confused to wake up and still be sitting at the same gate. I wish they were able to let us off so we could walk around-get a drink, etc. At least they didn't discover the problem mid-air. That would be fun!
