thanks and giving and travel and family

30 Nov

a little math for your tuesday morning:

5e =/> 4c

5am eastern is equal to if not greater than 4am central time.

this is what i learned over our little thanksgiving vacation.

wednesday, we rose at 5am and somehow avoided all the blasted travel & security woes we were banking on, leaving us with 3 hours to spare in the philly airport, at our gate. BUT there was chick-fil-a, so all was well.

sunday, we rose at 4am to leave the hotel at 5am and hope to make our 6am flight. we did. and then sat on the plane for an hour, while a very angry toddler screamed and the mechanics attempted to fix a pesky hydraulic issue. BUT we made it home before noon, so all was well.

in between the travels: all was very well indeed:

we celebrated the 21st birthday of luke’s sister katelyn . . .

sporting the goods

siblings celebrate

bonus sister!

we went to chicago with BOTH families to see Billy Elliot . . .

walking in the windy city

bundle o' sisters

ahhh, the theatre

and, as predicted, a whole lot of this happened . . .

three's a family

i think the difficult travel equation was totally worth it.
