On the road again and a surprise at the end

Posted July 18th, 2008 under All in the family, Travel by MicheleP.

We left Fayetteville on Wednesday and once again headed North – this time our destination: Kansas City.


Once again, the girls did pretty well on the trip and the slept for a good two hours while I got to listen to Dave Ramsey on the radio. I miss listening to the radio in the car! There isn’t a whole lot to see or do on the way – the highlight of the trip was the requisite potty stops at McDs


We were supposed to go straight to the airport and pick up Scott but I didn’t make as good of time as I intended and we were still South of KC when he landed – he offered to take a cab and meet us at the hotel. Since our last McD stop had been 2 hours earlier…and I had consumed an entire 32oz of Diet Dr Pepper…this worked well for me ;)

The girls and I got checked in at the hotel and I told them that in a few minutes there would be a surprise. They had NO CLUE that their Papa was coming here. I wish I would have thought to have my camera out when he knocked at the door because the look on their faces was priceless. They just kept looking at him…and then back at me…it took them a minute to run to him – but eventually they did and the rest of the night was all about being with Papa.

    Hi Michele! I still love following your blog. It’s so much fun to hear about the girls. How long are you in KC? You are probably pretty booked up, but we are having a twins club swimming date at the Lionsgate Pool on Tuesday at 10:00. Cheryl, Sofia and Isabele will be there, and Brenda, TOmmy, and Emily. I’m not sure about Liz. Well, if it would possibly work, We’d love to see you! Becky, Kellen and Ryan

    Like the little pile of dinosaur bones sitting by my computer? Had to laugh at that. I mean, of COURSE there is a pile of dinosaur bones in my house. It’s part of the package when a six year old boy lives with you.

    And isn’t little Tuw-nuw sweet?

    So glad you came to see me. What should we eat next week?!

    I’m so sad because I was just about to e-mail you to see when we could get together and I read that you are already gone! I’m so sorry I missed you. It has been crazy here the passed two weeks. I hate that I missed my chance. :( That is so sweet about the girls and their Papa!
