I got a lot of funny looks walking through the airport.
After another hour and a half on the road, I pulled into the driveway. Thank goodness for diet coke and the radio for keeping me awake but I was way too wired to sleep once I got home.
Approximately 4 hours of sleep later, it was time to get back in the car to head to Florida. We drove a family friend's truck and boat down.
Mom made the comment that she couldn't believe it wasn't decorated with lights for Christmas. When we opened the doors, we found mistletoe hanging from the rearview mirror and a goody basket on the center console.
I slept for most of the morning in the backseat while dad drove. Mary Loyal and Lash were in the car behind us. We played musical seats in the afternoon.
This trip was one of the easiest ones we've had. We stopped every couple of hours for gas and thankfully did not run into any problems.
While the 5:30am wakeup call was early, it was worth it when we pulled in just in time to see the sunset.
