We decided to make lemonade out of lemons and we went to an outlet mall. Alli got a watch and I got shoes and shorts....it was pretty productive. We looked for a hotel but $130 per night wasn't worth it so we drove on home.
Then, we left at 7am to catch her next flight. Once we got there they tell us...oops, we didn't actually get you on that flight (even though she has the ticket info there with their names on it). After much work they hand her tickets for the 10:10 flight (It was 10:10 right then) so we make a mad dash for the gates. After being picked for a bag search she makes it there but everything's delayed and she's a standby. Luckily it all worked out and she boarded at 12:00pm.....it was a pain but they're finally home!!

We reapplied sunscreen...spf 50 three times and we still ended up with bad sunburns....even Chris!!! Guess we need SPF 100!!Yep...Alli burned her shins and the tops of her feet! FYI If you get a bad sunburn you can rub mustard on it and let it dry...it will pull the heat and the sting out...Alli swears by it!!
He really loved watching this "Snake." It was a monitor, but he did inform one mom that she was wrong and it was a snake!
Worn out!! He was asleep within 5 minutes of getting in the car!!
In the gift shop he couldn't decide between a stuffed snake and a stuffed monkey so he got them both!

Elijah was so tired after all the playing!!
We had planed to go the outlet mall on our way home yesterday. We got a little lost getting there, then when we parked we realized we had left their luggage sitting in the parking garage....yep you read that right!! I set them beside the car, hooked Elijah's seat in then got in and off we went!! So we ate a quick lunch at the outlet mall and headed back to the airport! Luckily someone turned in the luggage so it all turned out okay. But by the time we left the airport there really wasn't time for shopping so we just headed home. And of course it was then rush hour so it took us 3 hours to get home instead of the usual 2....Kind of a mess of a day but we're home with them and their luggage finally!!
Here's a video of Eli playing with Emma last night.....They ran circles around each other!!

Then, Yesterday our friends daughter passed away. Lynds had severe cerbral palsy and couldn't walk or talk. She has had a lot of health problems in the past but had been doing great, so this was fairly unexpected. While I know she's now able to dance and sing in Heaven, my heart is so heavy for her family. Lynds was their ony child and she was everything to them.
Finally, on Wednesday, Sy, one of my co-workers from the gym passed away. She battled cancer for over a year. Perhaps this one is the hardest because while I know she's pain free in Heaven, she left a husband and three beautiful boys behind.
Please Pray for the families left behind as they make the necessary arrangements. Pray that the peace that passes all understanding will just envelope them.
