As the saying goes, all good things must come to an end, and that would include our fun and exciting Summer Vacation 2009.
As the trip wound up, we stopped by and visited my friend Andrea and her family.
Then on the way out of town, we dropped by Elizabeth's house and hand-delivered the cocoa maker she won playing the 500th Post Liar's Game. That was a lot of fun.
The hardest part of these long road trips is always the drive home. Everyone is tired. The fun and excitement are past. And, after two days of driving, we'll be greeted by two weeks worth of work that needs to be caught up. Yeah, it can be a bit of a let down.
So to help with the trip, we stopped at several parks and playgrounds along the way.
We knew we were in Texas when the thermometer hit 100 degrees. Yeah it was hot. I mentioned it to Kara, and she said, "Think cool thoughts, because the air conditioning stopped working this afternoon."
But we arrived home safe and sound Sunday evening. We said our happy greetings, got the essentials unpacked, took cool showers and went to bed - hot, tired, and glad to be home.
And, so you know, the AC was fixed by Monday morning - blown capacitor. Hooray for cool!
