We’re home.

We survived a trek back that included, but was not limited to:

-a cancelled flight

-a new 6AM flight

-a 2:30AM wake-up call (We woke Anderson up whispering in his ear, “it’s time for the airplane…” His eyes shot open, he sat straight up in bed and clapped.)

-a missed exit

-an unexpected toll road

-a last minute “stuff shuffle” at the ticket counter to make our one checked suitcase <50 lbs. Yeah, we were that family.

-a $49 charge for having a “<50 lbs but still oversized” suitcase

-a lot of sweating and fuming

-a unique opportunity to be right there as a passenger clutched my armrest, started shaking, PASSED OUT, hit the plane floor, came to and VOMITED

-a mad dash in Milwaukee to catch our 2nd flight

-1 spilled orange juice

-1 fussy, overtired baby

-2 flights (or as Anderson describes: “flies through sky just like Buzz”)

-a 30 minute wait for a shuttle

-a TWO HOUR ride home (we’re only 35 miles from the airport)

-1 massive suitcase, 2 car seats, 1 double stroller, 3 carry-ons, 1 diaper bag, 1 monkey back pack and 1 bag of snacks

It wasn’t great.

But Texas sure was…


Cowboy Christmas coming your way, y’all. Stay tuned.
