This is the last post about our trip home. We packed a lot into just a few days!
Monday morning, we got up and just hung out a while. Caedmon practiced his roping skillz.
He was determined that chair was not going anywhere.
After we ate lunch, we headed over to Trump’s house. She didn’t have her usual tens of thousands of chickens, but we made do just fine.
They fed the pack o’ dogs.
And played fetch with dogs who officially know how.
We also rode in the four wheeler and the Rhino, and Caedmon got to drive. Trump is always trying to secure her spot as the Favorite Aunt.
And when he got tired of driving, he rode in the back with Sugar. She’s been Caedmon’s buddy for a while.
They ran some water for the horses.
And Caedmon got to drink out of the boot cup.
He was pretty serious about that cup.
They also bowled in Trump’s hall. And rode the tractor. But we couldn’t stay forever, and had to head back to Mom’s. Caedmon is already talking about going back to Trump’s house at Christmas. I think she might be a teensy bit happy about that, too.
Monday night, several of my friends were getting together to celebrate Sara’s birthday, and I was so glad to be able to go hang out with them. Most of these girls were at my “going away” night out, and I have their photo and notes they wrote me hanging over my desk. Every time I sit down there, it reminds me of our sweet friendships and to pray for their families. I miss these girls!
Tuesday morning, we got up and got ready to head back to our house. The trip back was on time and easy. Caedmon even got to meet our Captain and First Officer. They let him see the cockpit and talked to him about his Halloween costume. They were sweet to him and it completely made his day. Well, that, and getting to see a Chinook helicopter up close at the airport.
We made it back just in time for dinner and settled in for an on-time (for me, actually early!) bedtime. We were all worn out, but so glad we got to go. We had a great trip and wish we’d had more time to go more places, do more things, and see more friends. But we’ll be back. We’re not that easy to get rid of.
