It's a Miracle!

I made it home safely, and it's a miracle. As I learned going to and coming from DC, there is nothing better than traveling to the airport using public transportation. Especially when you are by yourself and have 100 lbs. of luggage. (My arms--mainly triceps--were still tired a couple days later.) The best of part of the travels was when I tripped, fell, and hit my head on the escalator down to the Metro. Luckily, my head hit the black rubber that rotates around for the handrail. I laughed so many times. But anyway, it was great once I did get to Baltimore, checked in my bags, boarded the plane, and enjoyed the nonstop flight to Phoenix.

Since being being home, I've seen my family, visited a couple old friends, gone up to our cabin, and finished a book. I highly recommend The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society.

Pictures from the cabin:
Card games and reading 24/7.

Of course, there's a golf course in the backyard.
And of course, some pictures had to be taken.

Peeking through the window.
Bike rides.

Pictures from my mom's birthday dinner with the family:
Heather and Quinn.
Everyone gets to help open the presents when it's Granna's birthday.

Dax--he was born on my birthday.

Enjoy the last few weeks of summer!

Oh that's too bad about the tripping down the escalator, at least it is a funny story! My sister-in-law just recommended the literary society of Potato pill pie (or whatever it is called) I am excited to read it.
