All Together Again . . . Briefly
The girls looked so adorable in their matching Grandma/Grandpa camp outfits--so many people commented on them and asked if they were all sisters. They definitely look like they are all related!
They all got dinner at McDonalds, and then dropped off Aunt Claire, Emily, and Elia at the Columbus airport so they could catch their flight back to Dallas . . . or not. Mom and Dad waited around a little bit, and Aunt Claire texted that the second leg of their flight was going to be delayed. Eventually Mom and Dad started home, and when they were about halfway there, Aunt Claire texted with the terrible news that their flight wasn't going anywhere that night because of mechanical problems, and she was waiting in a huge line to find out if they would be able to go to a hotel! They eventually got put in one, but it was far away, it was late, they were all really exhausted, they didn't have any luggage, and the flight was going to leave at 0600 the next morning! They slept but couldn't catch the 4:30 shuttle bus, so they had to take a taxi to the airport. Eventually they got there, where they had to fly down to Tampa and then up to St. Louis before finally getting back to Dallas. What a nightmare!! Emily and Elia were real troopers the whole time, and Aunt Claire deserves some kind of medal for her efforts! She flew back to Salt Lake really early Friday morning, and I'm sure it will take a month for her to recover from this whole adventure, LOL.
