Wish I could extend my stay and help celebrate but we have to head back up north on Sunday. Will miss the next snow storm I think but will experience some single digit temps. Have fun! Your plans sound awesome and amazing!

Z and I be taking off in 12 hours.

M had a bit of a travel set back. She was supposed to fly out on Friday afternoon. Her connecting flight was canceled. Luckily, she was notified before she drove the two hours to the airport. She was rebooked on a direct flight Saturday afternoon. She's been having a great time on her first solo trip.

I was supposed to be off today. A few things came up on Friday that I needed to finish today. The plan was work a half day from home. It turned into a full day. The bright side is I got a vacation day back.
