Home Again Home Again

We made it home yesterday but as you know have been busy getting things unpacked and filling Cindy's parents in on the trip, the trip home went well aside from the swarm of bees that hit the windshield forcing us to stop and clean off what looked like someone threw a bucket of snot on us, Cindy said she just couldn't see through that stuff, I bet they wont have the guts to do that again Ha Ha, needless to say the van was washed and the oil changed first thing this morning, guy at the car wash asked “What is that all over the front of your van?”, told him we are going into the honey business, I really don’t think he bought it but I did buy a car wash.

I took a bunch of pictures and threw together a slideshow that gives you an overview of our trip, I laughed so hard at a few of them, for a hint look for Dixie and her expression in between us a couple pictures after the statement "We Never Got Lost", I couldn't have staged this one if I had tried.


  1. to say it was a trip and half is an understatement..but you survived everything.. the wedding went perfect.. the kids are married and happy.. it was so good to see you again.. love the photos.. video is done and will be mailed out monday.. miss you guys.. hope you dont need your jackets when you come back in aug.. but as it stands now i would pack them.. lol

  2. Thanks Nan,

    We really enjoyed the trip and seeing you and Mr. Bill just made it that much better.

    Thanks for the videos I know they will be great, and we will bring the jackets just in case :^)

  3. I am so glad you and Cindy are home safe despite the demise of the swarm of bees on your windshield. It is always good to get home...especially your own bed. When my husband and I get into bed every night we say it is our favorite place in the world. Who knows I might need to devote a whole blog on my bed...another inanimate objedt I love!!
    Welcome home!!!

  4. Oh..and I love your slide show. Now I feel like I can see you and Cindy and your horses and Dixie. Awesome storytelling slide show!!!!!!

  5. Thanks Susie,

    Funny thats the first thing we said when we pulled up, "We get to sleep in our own bed tonight" no matter how nice the motels or friends homes are there is just no finer place to sleep than your own bed.

    I'm waiting for your next blog post, looks like we are giving each other ideas again.

  6. I had over 230 pictures and about half I wanted to post, Cindy and I decided a slide show would be less painful to everyone, I am happy you enjoyed it.

  7. Wonderful slide show. Weddings are a great way to get together with family and friends.

    Strange about the swarm of bees. Could have been scary if the right music was playing.

    Thanks for sharing,

  8. Ok, first I gotta tell how much I laughed at the whole "bee and honey thing" on your windshield - HYSTERICAL! And I kinda know how you felt because when I lived in Florida, I had the problems with the love bugs during the summer months. They were smushed everywhere. I literally could not see out of my window.

    You're slide show was AWESOME. Really AWESOME!! Love how you had the captions throughout. Everyone looked like they were having so much fun. Beautiful church! And what a great ending!

    I bet you and Cindy are glad to be home, hu?

    Thanks so much for sharing your trip with us, my friend!

    Welcome back!

    Enjoy your Sunday.

  9. Thank You Wray,

    Yes Sir Weddings are a time of happiness and we sure enjoyed this one.

    "Could have been scary if the right music was playing." The right music sure could have made the experience exciting Ha Ha

    Glad to have you join us here.

  10. Hey Ron,

    It looked like a small dark cloud then sounded like large raindrops hitting the windsheild although the water went no where, we got off the freeway and got it all cleaned off and right when we got back on one hit right in Cindy's line of sight, she didn't think it was funny though.

    Glad you enjoyed the slide show, the decorations in the church are the ones Tim made, and yes we are glad to be home.

  11. Just a good 'ol fashioned country wedding. I love it.

    And don't you just love the unwanted picture taker!!!

    Nice the horses where grazing to greet you when you returned home.

    And....I love love love your flower garden!!!

  12. Thanks Trisha,

    Those unwanted picture takers were all over the place, it will be fine as long as we don't get a picture in the mail from them Ha Ha

    I Love the Country and the wedding followed up by the horses and garden pretty much sums it all up and it is all good.

  13. Looks like everyone ha a great time. Thanks for sharing it with the rest of us!

  14. You are very welcome Peg, glad you all enjoyed it as much as we did.

  15. Great pics! Lovely wedding...looks like you guys had fun. Glad you made it home safely.

  16. What a great slide show! The wedding was lovely, your kids are gorgeous, and that sonagram picture gave me goosebumps!! Once again, congratulations!! Thanks for sharing it in a slideshow. I really enjoyed it. I love how Dixie was helping Cindy "tend the farm". That dog is too cute!

    Glad you had a great trip and made it back safe!

  17. It looks like it was a lovely wedding. Congrats to you and the bride and groom. I have a family wedding coming up - my sister - and it's turned into a dramafest. I hope it settles down so we can have as much fun as you did.
