Yesterday we took Jason, Jessica and Darrell to the Boston airport...it was an eventful trip as Jason was sick from nerves and even though we stopped at the 99 (kids eat for free) -he didn't eat lunch. We got to the airport a bit late and the lines at Delta were about 200 people deep...no kidding. They made it fine...Darrell's mom, Janette and I loaded up the 6 littles and headed home to find Darrell's sister, Cheryl and her family eager to whisk Janette off to spend sometime with her.
We settled in for the night. Everyone was grumpy and tired and the afternoon seemed to drag with the rain outside. Around 7, we heard a loud noise and thought someone had an accident but were surprised to find our pool destroyed by a large branch that fell onto it. Despite all that transpired, all is okay...the most we feel is a bit of disappointment because we were hoping to do a lot of swimming in the next two weeks while everyone is away.
Michaela joins Darrell and the kids on Wednesday when we once again take her to the airport. Right now they are in Switzerland while Darrell does some business. Then they will head into France and Germany to pick up Michaela. They will spend most of their time in Germany seeing some our favorite places from when we lived there. From there they will head into Austria, Lichtenstein, ItLy and them back to Switzerland on the 25th! We are so excited for them!
Below are some pictures of the pool... No pictures of their trip yet.
