Going Home

I forgot to include these two pictures yesterday. This was the 2 hour ride back to St. Petersburg after Disney, where we checked into a hotel for about 6 hours before flying out.

Here the kids are waiting for our flight back home. Do you recall the first picture of our trip? Yes, well the novelty of flying has worn off. Also, the kids were pretty tired since we had a late night, then had to get up by 6.

Luke was fascinated with the emergency procedures pamphlet. He kept pulling it out to read it, both on the way there and on the way back. I'm not sure what the other passengers thought about this, nor how the flight crew perceived our confidence in the skills, but it was funny to us.

We were certainly glad to touchdown in Des Moines. Even though it was overcast, cold and the snow was dingy, it was home. We were home less than two hours when Ben came up to me and asked me to make cookies with him. Then Luke wanted me to play with him, so we lined up the wooden tracks and steamed our trains on them. And we surprised Audrey with a makeover of her room, done by our friend Kate while we were gone. It was good to be home.
