Long trip

by BMHatfield on Jun.22, 2007, under Mike Hatfield Family

We made it back also and decided to do it in one day.  We got into St. Louis at 12:30 AM after a 15 1/2 hour trip.  I am glad I had a great time on vacation and got to relax as Belinda has me back to hanging ceiling fans, drapes etc.  It was good to see everyone and it seemed like everyone enjoyed the week together.  Looking forward to seeing everyone’s pictures.  As soon as Belinda gives me a few minutes to myself I will get the pictures on a disk and send them to everyone.

Made it back!

by AMHatfield on Jun.20, 2007, under Anthony Hatfield Family

We made it back safe and sound to Indy after our week of fun in SC.  I wish that I could say our trip back was just as fun.  We decided to make the return trip in one day.  We didn’t run into any major issues, except a little rain in the mountains and a few traffic delays.  But with a decent stop for lunch and dinner and a lot of pit stops, total travel time was 15.5 hours.  Thankfully the kids were pretty good.

I almost thought we were still at the beach when we woke up Sunday morning to find our grass was as brown as the sand.  Apparently we are in a small drought and had no rain while we were gone.  It also sounds like it hit at least 90 almost every day.  The good news is that the pet fish was still alive, and the dog seems glad to be home after his week at the kennel.

Luggage has arrived.

by Don and Linda Bingle on Jun.19, 2007, under Donald Bingle Family

Just so you don’t worry that we lost our clothes or our games, luggage showed up about 24 hours after we landed, no doubt with many more frequent flier miles than we have.

No cicadas in our neck of the woods even yet and it was hot enough while we were gone to fry our petunias to a crisp.  Perhaps the frogs here or the moles or somesuch keep the grubs from hibernating for 17 years.
