at the airport
After taking the travelers to the airport we headed to Grandma Ide's for breakfast. Yes, she got up really early so she could make an egg bake for us when we got there! After breakfast we just hung out for a while and tried not to fall asleep.
trying to stay awake
Then we headed out to see the cousins. First to the Dorrs to have lunch and then to the Rohrer's to see Amy and Ada. We also got to see their house for the first time! It's beautiful! They have such a great backyard and all the work they've done on the house looks great!
"Come play with me Andy!"
A thick fog settled in and made the interstate a parking lot, so we decided to kill time by stopping at Harbor Freight for tools and then to Goodwill for just stuff. We got lots of really good deals, but even good deals add up fast! LOL But the greatest thing we bought was a set of mutes for Andy's drums! They are truly a beautiful thing!
On the way home we talked to Will in Hawaii. The flight was a little bumpy the second half, but he didn't get sick. PTL! They were greeted with leis and 80 degree weather on arrival in Honolulu. When I talked to him he had just gotten out of the pool which he told me was colder than the ocean that he had swam in earlier. Then they were headed to a restaurant for dinner where you could eat surrounded by sting rays in a big aquarium bubble over the dining room! I am pretty sure he is going to have a FANTASTIC time in Hawaii!!!
