The trip was really amazing.  My mom and my sister refused to accept any help with the food and they were feeding 26 people all weekend long. The food was seriously amazing and we all got to catch up while the cousins ran around playing together and having the best time ever.

We left for home this morning. The long 9-hour drive ahead of us seemed like it would take 9 days but it really wasn’t all that bad. The kids were good. Maggie was good!?!

I was bad though.

We stopped at an Arby’s for some breakfast and because the little girls gotta go bafroom and, wouldn’t ya know it, I left my wallet and my phone there and didn’t realize it until we were a half hour down the road.  I was so frustrated with myself but it turned out alright. We got home an hour later than we had hoped but I got my phone and wallet back in tact because of the great employees who kept them safe.

We stopped at a rest area so Jesse, Lucy, and Maggie could make a bird’s nest for what reason I don’t know.

And then they ran some energy out while I fed Lanie some fruit.

Really, the trip home was so uneventful that I don’t have much to say about it other than leaving my stuff at the Arby’s.  When we got home we had to run and I was sure it would be slow and tired but I we were wrong. Sitting in the car caused us to store up energy or something because we all felt great during our runs and finished strong.

The visit was wonderful but I would be lying if I said I’m not glad to be home sitting on my bed. I think we’ll all be sleeping well tonight.
