Together at last!

Today has been a very long day. My sister-in-law and I drove to the air port and picked up Jeff and the kids. We headed to Idaho right away. The weather was terrible, and we had snow and slush for the first couple hours of the trip. How fun it was though by 7:30 p.m. to finally see all my kids together at one time. I have missed seeing them interact with each other. They are so fun.
As a Mom, it is a real treat to get your adult kids together, that is hard to do... when they are married and going off to college. So I am  a happy Mom tonight!

"The family. We were a strange little band of characters trudging through life sharing diseases and toothpaste, coveting one another's desserts, hiding shampoo, borrowing money, locking each other out of our rooms, inflicting pain and kissing to heal it in the same instant, loving, laughing, defending, and trying to figure out the common thread that bound us all together."   ~ Erma Bombeck

"Your family and your love must be cultivated like a garden. Time, effort, and imagination must be summoned constantly to keep any relationship flourishing and growing."  ~ Jim Rohn
