I’m back!

Thank you everyone for your kind words.  We all miss her so much, but I know that she lived a long and happy life.

We made the trek from El Paso to Kansas and back within 3 days.  It was 16 hours each direction and man am I exhausted!!

We had Pukefest 2011 in the car on the way back.  No exaggeration.

Three kids with a stomach bug on a 16 hour car trip is not pleasant, in case you wondered.  You can’t even begin to imagine how happy I was to pull into our driveway!

I’m still glad that we made the trip.  It was nice to be able to say goodbye to her and to visit with family that we don’t see very often.

I {of course} took pictures.

Here are my 5 rugrats…

My husband and his dad…

Our kids and Andy’s cousins’ kids.  It was really hard to get all 8 of them to look the same direction.  My youngest {on the right} is making such a strange face!:)

I think it’s going to take us all a week to recover from the 30+ hours in the car and the stomach bug.

    Yeah, Andy doesn’t look like his dad at all! ;)

    I’m glad you guys are back and that everyone seems to be getting over the vomit-itis.

    Get some rest when you can!ReplyCancel

    So sorry to hear of your family’s loss. I’m glad everyone made it back from the trip safe and sound. Beautiful family photos, BTW.

    I’ve had one sick kid in the car and thought that was bad. I can’t imagine having three. I hope everyone is either feeling better or continues to stay well.ReplyCancel

    Bless you I can’t even imagine what it would feel like to travel in the car with 3 sick people.ReplyCancel

    I’m glad you were able to say a final goodbye and survive the trip to boot. I remember the days when every trip to the mountains was a pukefest. We always carried two large metal bowls in the car (2 kids). Ah, the old days…. Glad you’re back!ReplyCancel
