Time for sleep!
Time for sleep!
We are very tired. After all it’s past midnight EST. Oh and our bags made it too.
Our flight out of PHL left an hour late due to, oh just hanging out waiting for our turn on the runway. We had an hour & 10 min layover in Denver. We had to run past over 20 gates, but we made it. Hope our luggage does. Again, confirmation we are too old for The Amazing Race.Read more
First for us.
Beautiful morning, sitting on patio listening to the birds. This is my favorite part of the House.
I am really going to miss my family. I hardly get to see them so just spending time with them is treasured. I got teary eyed when I had to say good bye to each of them, seems like some each day since Mon. Those of you who live driving distance from your family need to appreciate this and see them as much as you can.
I will miss the fireflies, the lush lawns, different birds, and of course KC. He is a special kitty. Very sweet; always wants to be where people are.
I will miss playing new disc golf courses. Really liked the ones we visited.
I appreciate our bed and Oregon weather. Too humid for me here.
I appreciate the freedom of having a car at my ready.
I appreciate our water. Just used to the taste and I drink more of it (esp when i can add lemon).
I appreciate our lap kitties (altough KC is a very quiet kitty, and I will miss that).
I appreciate control of my own diet and exercise time.
I will not appreciate having to go back to work. Yet, did appreciate the days I didn't have to think about it much.
I, too, hope we can get together very soon.Read more
I do like this picture showing where we have been in the local area.
It has been a very nice trip. There are several things that I will miss about being here and of course several things that I will appreciate when we get back home.
I'm going to miss Brenda's family. They have been super nice and fun. Lisa has mad awesome dinners each night. Steven was kind enough to take us to several disc golf courses and even let us win ;-) Liam was kind enough to graduate so we could come here in the first place! KC, though not a lap kitty, has kept us entertained and allow us to not miss our girls as much.
I'm going to miss the Fireflies! So nice to see each night. Everyone here is of course used to seeing them, so they don't have much of an impact, but for us . . . they are truely magical!
I'm going to miss the closed in patio. A fantastic way to enjoy the outdoors without the bugs. We can see / hear all kinds of birds and are protected enough from the elements to make it quite relaxing. There is even a ceiling fan for when things get a touch too warm.
I will appreciate our weather more :-) Sure, it gets toasty at times in Oregon, but it's not nearly as humid, so you don't have that element tossed in trying to suck the life out of you when you're outdoors just walking around ;-)
I will appreciate seeing our girls. I need some Zazzy lap time and I'm sure she is willing to help out.
I will appreciate being able to buy something for the actual cost listed. "I'd like to buy this $10 disc."
"Sure, that will be $11.60."
Ahh yes, the sales tax . . .
Most of all though, I will appreciate our bed!!! Though faint, I can hear it calling already and it is ready to welcome us home and give us some awesome sleep that we crave.
Quite the nice vacation though, and I do hope that it takes us less than 7 years to get back out here.Read more
Such a nice night for a walk. Temp was a bit lower and the humidity was down. Walked around historic DoylesTown and took in the sights.
Fireflies were out in full force tonight, and Brenda managed to get a picture where three of them went off at the same time. She did have to circle them on the picture, but it's worth it :-)
Really nice way to wrap up the trip. We hope to get some good rest for our long day tomorrow.
Already checked in for the flight, so that should help.
I'll charge up the phone and see if I can use it all day as I'll have my boarding pass on it as well as entertainment stuff.
Should be a good movie or two to watch on the way home.
Until then, we will catch you in the morning!
Really yummy pizza for our date night. I had veggie with pesto, tomatoes, onion and cheese. David had one with pulled bbq pork, potatoes and basil with Carbonara sauce.
Practice in the park.
Weather was rather warm and humid. We were lucky that we could throw from a shaded area into the sunlight, so it saved us from getting too toasty.
Brenda did some filming with her phone and Coaches Eye so we could see all the things we are doing wrong :-)
Things are getting better with the throws, but we still have a long ways to go to get 300+ all the time with our drives.
Brenda has been having good success with the faster drivers as of late. She's liking the Katana, and I think I will keep an eye out for an Air Trespass to add to her growing collection.
I tried out the Vision, and it's a really good disc. Might have it in the bag for a bit to see if I can find the right times to use it. My Glow TieDye Escape is currently filling the role that the Vision would be used for.Read more
Watching Incredibles 2.
Tightwad Tuesdays, where the ticket price is cheaper than a large soda.
