We're Back...

Sorry I haven't posted any recent updates. I didn't feel comfortable saying we were going to be out of town for two weeks (and I didn't know how I would talk about the goings on without making it pretty obvious that we were in fact away from home).

We made it home on Saturday afternoon, after quite a road trip. We drove from home to the San Francisco Bay Area, stayed there for 5 days, drove down to Costa Mesa (LA Area) for the CHARGE Syndrome Conference for 4 days, drove back to SF for another 4 days, then home. Evan was a good travel buddy, but that being said, I don't think any of us are anxious to jump back in the car anytime soon. It was good to spend time with Jeremy's family--many of whom had never met Evan in person until this past week. We also got to meet Cousin Jack. We had some car trouble and a flat tire. We all have mild colds and Evan has an ear infection--word on the CHARGE list is that this was a common "souvenir" to come home with.

I will try to summarize some of our adventures in future posts. I'm just too tired to do it now--I'm actually looking forward to going to work tomorrow so I can rest up from vacation!

PS Pictures from our trip are coming (I took almost 400 during the 2 weeks! The vast majority are from before or after the conference...sorry to disappoint our CHARGE friends). I'm uploading pics to a slide show as I type this.

We are so glad you got home safely, especially when you had a flat tire. We loved seeing all of you! I know you really enjoyed meeting CHARGE families you had met on the web. We are so proud of you all.
