Sooooo ... on our trip to Reno, I discovered that we had several devoted followers of our blog, so I'm attempting to revive it. Have patience, with me :) And, hey, if you want to comment and give me some encouragement, I'm sure it will motivate me!
We made the twenty-two hour flight from Reno, via Dallas, without too many glitches :)
We had an interesting second leg of the journey, where we were originally all seated in separate seats! We ended up getting us in groups of two in middle sections, not the best, but at least we were together. Kate, Eliza, and I were in between two interesting men, one of whom snuggled up with me half the flight while he got some good sleep! Then there was the time he spent talking to himself ... interesting, indeed.
Kate was watching the Wizard of Oz ... love her expression :) Strange guy #2 is in the background. At one point he lost his headphones and got Kate involved in helping him find them in the middle of the night. It struck me as hilarious and I just couldn't stop laughing!
We came home and crashed ... which is not the best way to adjust, but we just couldn't stay up any longer. We'd been nearly 24 hours with no sleep for the adults, and a few hours for the kids. So we all crashed and slept for five hours!
Bard and these three all slept on the couch :) I guess, when you're tired enough, you can sleep anywhere!
It's been five days now and we're still struggling to get adjusted to the eight hour difference. We miss everyone back in Reno so much and our house seems quiet and awkward. I'm sure we just need a few weeks to break it in :)
