Sunday, February 26, 2012 make it back home

...without anything sensational to report

We had such a fun trip through several states and back this past week.  My only wish is that we would have had more time to spend with so many other friends I could have connected with along the way.

Some numbers of interest for this week:

4 kids
0 dogs
10 days
2 tanks of gas
15 rest stops
6 times the Letter Factory Circus was watched
4 trips to Starbucks (for all but the last leg of the trip)
4 homes to crash
1 niece to love on
2 babies to cuddle with
1 day of snow (in Virginia)
1 trip a children's museum
1 beautiful day at the park
1 day at the bowling alley
many late nights staying up way too late gabbing
many glasses of good wine to share with friends
1 new pet acquired...a desert tortoise of course.  For the record her name is: "Mrs. Chuck Norris".
1 van that every friend commented, "You ARE NOT going to let Mark see this van like this are you?"
8 caring persons trying their very best to help me plan our trip in April
1 countdown we are about to begin very soon

Now I have really got to start working on my lists!

The race is on...


  1. Love this post! Forget Mark seeing the van like that, you better get it cleaned up before Tuesday or you will have to listen to a 15 minute lecture from my sweet and well meaning 3 year old.

  2. So glad you all had such a great trip! So sorry it didn't work out for us to see you all too. Next time! Clean that dirty van because.... the countdown is ON!!!!!! :) :) :) :)
