We're finally home!
Yep, we're back from Orlando. We had a great time and I'm going to share slowly.
We left Saturday and ran into traffic, on the interstate, in a number of places. Going into Mobile, Alabama, and Lake City, Florida and one other spot I don't even recall. It took us about 12 hours to get to Tallahassee, when it should have taken 8. It was one long day.
We drove through Biloxi and Gulfport to see the damage from Katrina. I haven't been through there since the hurricane. It was unreal to see the destruction. We used to vacation there every year when the girls were babies and I had great memories of times there together. It was hard to see it the way it is now, but hopefully hurricanes will stay away for a while and it will be rebuilt.
We took the kids for a short walk on the beach. John didn't remember the beach in Galveston last year, so this was all new to him. It took him a little while to enjoy the tide coming in and covering his little chunky toes, but he came around.
More tomorrow . .
