NYC and back!

Oh man, what a trip this was!

We left Mayberry on time Wednesday at 5, drove to our dinner destination in Asheville, and then the NOT fun began.  Bus #3 had a problem, so we sat until a replacement could be brought up from Atlanta, to be re-loaded with kids/bags, and off we go at 3a!  Of course this through off the whole Thursday schedule...but we adjusted.

Most of my photos are still in the camera, but here is one with my family all gussied up to go see Wicked...which was wicked good:
And another of us on the Hudson River boat tour, wearing our Forced Family Fun tee shirts:
We had two teens, mentioning NO names, who refused to (briefly) don the shirt for one stinking photo, till the baby mama said that if baby girl refused, she would have to wear the shirt ALL.DAY.LONG.  They know who doles out the dollars when they wanna buy something!  Ha.

There were no breakdowns heading south, but it was still a loooong trip.  Sleeping sitting up is practically impossible for me, but worth the inconvenience to share this wonderful experience with my gals.  I was in bed at 7:30, which is totally foreign to this body, but very welcome last night.

I will post more photos later.  Laundry comes first.  Bugger.

NY was great, but there's no place like HOME!

Kids are rotten. Mostly. At least until they're not.

That's just a theory I have. It's based solely upon me having been the eldest of eight.

Pay no attention to me. Nobody else does. heh.

Glad you're back on one piece with all those awesome stories to tell. big hugs xoxo

Kids are all about themselves until their not. I so remember.

I'm so glad you had a great time honey. I followed you on Facebook.

Have a fabulous and restful day home. Big hugs to you and lots of scritches to the babies. ♥♥♥

For the record, I was the first to put it on. So I was the best kid that day ;P

Mrs. Dyer said...

Haha Ansley! You were definitely a good sport. It really was a great trip. Thanks so much for going with us, Grammie!

You know how to pick your battles! This was certainly a minor skirmish, and YOU set a good example for the other two gals...xoxoxo
