For all you stalkers…

We made it home late Tuesday night and I’m still recovering. It took us 12 hours on the dot to get there and thankfully only 11 & 1/2 hours to get home. Justin’s taking the computer for the day so I thought I’d just post a quick one and tell you we made it out alive. The stay itself was very relaxing and extremely enjoyable. The trip wasn’t horrible… just long and tiring. Before I went I thought a Suburban was a big vehicle, after cramming 7 people, 2 dogs, luggage and a big cooler in it felt more like a mini Cooper. Nonetheless, fabulous memories were made and lots of laughs along the way. Here are just a couple pics and I’ll try to get the rest on Picasa and post more specifics soon! I’m still up to my eyeballs in laundry and luggage… oh, and poopy diapers from a young man who has decided that he’s going to be a “cryer”… Lord, please help me! 🙂

I didn’t get too many fabulous pictures but this is pretty much what Erika did this weekend. I know if no one but Marla appreciates it it’s worth posting because it absolutely cracks me up! 🙂 Her camera is AWESOME and I tried to figure out how to steal it, but considering it never left her face, the most creative plans were never acted on!

Looking forward to recapping the whole weekend soon!

    I’m glad you made it back – I am a stalker and I have been looking for a post! I had a crier too (my second) – you’ll make it Darby! It usually subsides by 3 months! Great to have you back!
