This past week we had special company--my brother and his younger daughter Elia came to visit us from Texas! They flew in on Sunday afternoon, so Bob and I, along with the 3 girls and Drew, drove up to BWI to pick them up. Dan's wife Melinda had to stay home, since their other daughter Emily had school, so we skyped with them (which was fun, but not the same as having them here too!)
The only thing we really went out and did was go over to the L's house for dinner Monday night. Ed smoked some absolutely delicious barbeque ribs in his smoker, so we had a real feast, plus a ton of fun and laughter! Otherwise, Dan had a quiet week of relaxing, while Elia happily played with her cousins. A real vacation, LOL! We sadly drove back to BWI to drop them off yesterday morning. They eventually made it home--after sitting on the runway at Charlotte for 3 hours and 15 minutes, waiting to de-ice! We miss them!
