We made it back home, safe and sound. This is the perfect picture for today (December 23rd).
We were all ready to get home and sleep in our own beds. Kade just couldn't quite wait long enough. He fell asleep on the plane from Detroit to South Bend. He totally denies the fact that he slept but I told him I have proof, as seen above.
Our trip should have been suspended/delayed/canceled due to inclement weather but we trooped on anyway. We tried to find something fun everywhere we went. Sometimes that was hard to do. This is what the weather looked like most of the time we were there.
We did end up spending at least four hours everyday, in ponchos, at an amusement park of some kind. And then Wednesday we battled through a parking lot that California calls a freeway only to be at a park for a little over an hour when it turned to this.
But as we drove on to the next, and final, hotel we were treated to this amazing site.
I'll catch up in the next few days. Actually...it will probably be more like next week.
Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night.
