My kids are home!!

The kids made it home early Friday morning and I can't tell you have good it is to have them back.
Grandpa and his brother-in-law Mike drove the kids up and it took 18 hours because around Wichita, Kansans, Caden started getting car sick. He tossed his cookies for about three hundred miles. All except for once was he able to tell Grandpa to pull over and made it out of the truck in time. Apparently the one time he lost it in the truck Mike handed him a paper bag to puke in and it had a hole in it, so that wasn't good. Caden use to get car sick every time we went to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN, but had not done that in about three years. No idea what sparked it this time, but hopefully it was a one time deal.
On Friday we all went to the local fair. Colton went one way and Chyann went another looking for their friends and I didn't see them until it was time to leave. Caden hooked up with some of his buddies and rode all the rides and played the rip-off games. I had to stop by the beer tent and have a beer to cool off because it was soo hot. Good time had by all.
Grandpa and Mike left on Saturday am. They made it back to OK in a record setting 14 hours.
The rest of the weekend was spent by the pool and weeding the garden until the rain came on Sunday afternoon.

Poor Caden - he must have been miserable. I'm happy your kids are home. I miss mine so much some times! I would love to have them home again, even for a short time.

I'm happy that your happy. It must be nice to have all the chatter that the kids bring back into the house. How did they like the new baby/

Poor guy, I used to have car sickness as a kid too. I always had to take motion sickness pills if we went on a long trip. I really miss my guys when they go on their fishing trips, it's feels so strange to have the family apart.
