6+ hours, journey home

at hour five i looked at bryce and asked him
if he
had a sharpened pencil that i could
stick in my
eye. after we got the kids
dropped off at their necessary destinations,
bryce and i drove back towards middle
indiana surrounded by high corn fields and
telephone poles. we called arnis as we
pulled into town, picked up the stromboli
and salad and headed home. poor delilah
was beside herself as we walked through
the front door, tail whipping anything it
came into contact with.

most of the vacation was good, i got to
read, sit by the pool and walk the dunes.
6 days was too long for 17 people. but
getting to see my 70 year old dad perform
a can opener off the diving board, while
his 10 grandkids bobbed up and down in the
shallow end, chanting...grampy - grampy

made all the crap worth it.

grampy and g...perfecting the can opener - g's smile, says it all.

You're a braver woman than me... ;) But it sounds like you had a good time. We, on the other hand, took our first-ever solo vacation (in 12 years!) that didn't involve family or music obligations...although we did spend some time with my mother on the way home (I'm trying to pretend that part didn't I can still say it was a no-relatives vacation.)
