Back from Travels

I'm back. My plane flew back into town yesterday, and I walked off the plane and into the waiting arms of my kids. There's nothing quite like those hugs to bring me back to life after a fast-paced, multi-town/city tour.

Vacation was a mixture of business and pleasure this year, and it was, for the most part, very enjoyable.

We spent the first weekend here in Omaha, visiting with friends and relaxing. From there, we drove a few hours north to visit family and friends in Northwest Iowa, where my husband and I are both from. I did plenty of hiking with my Dad (much to the chagrin of my kids) and, in the process, had lots of good talks. I really needed that time with my Dad. It was relaxing, enlightening, and recharging.

We celebrated Nature Girl's birthday and then left her there for an extended visit with her grandparents while The Teen, my husband, and myself came back home on Thursday afternoon. Friday morning, I and my husband flew to New Orleans for business and then flew back home yesterday. While I didn't get to do as much sight-seeing as I had hoped I might, I did get to do a bit. I was there for the organization I represent though, so it wasn't unexpected.

I'm back to work today but I'm off again tomorrow for the 4th of July holiday. It will be a short week at work for sure. I'm going to spend the holiday getting my vacation blog posts ready so I can share with you all the fun things I did.

Until then, have a great day, and a great 4th!
