We're Here!

Three times I sat down between last night and today in an attempt to blog. But alas, swimming, holding babies, and hanging out with the "fam" has (rightfully) taken precedence.

In the last 30 hours I have traveled across the country, going from soggy, wet tropical storm weather to hot-as-an-oven heat (108 yesterday). But the humidity is killer...a whopping 6% humidity today (note the sarcasm)....my friends in humid places are rolling thier eyes right now.

I must take this time to say that when I am here I have the BEST hair days. It could be my parents fancy shampoo, but the lack of moisture in the air has to help. My lips and skin, on the other hand, are screaming for chapstick and lotion...it doesn't take any time to be completely parched here. My large water bottles here aren't nearly big enough for this H2O junky.

I got this time to post with an unexpected 20 minutes of downtime before my brother and his family and my parents all sit down for dinner, which means I won't have time to post pics...but I hope to do so soon.

So glad you arrived safely and are enjoying time with the fam. We miss you around here where the current weather stats at 9:57PM are 70 degrees with 73% humidity. Actually feels pretty good...but wait until the sun comes up! Yuck.
