Virtual Postcard

7:21 AM-and I'm listening to a cajun version of "Amazing Grace"...

We made it in actually a half hour earlier than we were scheduled to. I have a GPS so we were able to rent a car and drive to Leonard's cousin R's (I'm using initials to protect their identities) house. They hadn't told their children, M and N, so I had James call M and act like he was still in MI. We drove up while they were on the phone and Nik videotaped walking in the door. The look on M's face was hysterical-she couldn't figure out what was going on.

On the up side, it's so very good to see them. We're all going on a road trip to San Antonio today... They've never been either, so it will be new for everyone. On the down side, I have a cold. A "I need to go lie down for a minute and end up waking up 4 hours later" type cold. But, it's been a good time so far anyway.

Glad you're having a good time Laura. Take care of that cold; I find Neocitran and a good night's sleep does it for me.
Have a great weekend!

Glad you are having a good time!!! We all have colds here too, including the new baby. This winter and cold season seems like it is never going to end this year. I hope you feel better!

Thanks for the postcard via blog post. :)

Ooooh, I envy you. Away from the snow and cold weather. Sorry that you got a bug. I hope it's just a 24 hour thing and you're back to health.

What a trick you guys made on the cousins. I could imagine the look on the cousin's face.

Have a good time!! Sounds like the road trip is a good start.

If it's pretty, go down to the RiverWalk Also, a great place to eat breakfast is The Gunther House, on the river. Wonderful Breakfast!! We go there whenever we get to San Antonio.

Road trips are always, always a good idea. Or plane trips, or whatever. A change of scenery. I hope, despite your cold, that you all have a wonderful time and come back feeling refreshed.
