Vacation- Saturday through Monday

We weren't able to do a lot on Saturday except travel. We were flying standby again to Denver and everything looked good- until we got to the airport in Orange County. The plane we were supposed to take was struck by lightning in Denver and the flight was cancelled. Of course all the revenue passengers got priority over us and were rerouted to other flights. We were not so lucky. That meant all the other flights out of Orange County were full for the rest of the day as were all the flights from Los Angeles. San Diego looked good though! So we ended up driving almost 2 hours to fly out of San Diego. I don't know if I've ever not enjoyed something so much, because, unfortunately for me, the backseat of the car we were in was not large enough for 2 carseats and me. Guess who was squished the whole way. Oh well, at least we finally made it to Denver!
We're halfway home!

Before we left, though, we decided to take another drive along the coast. We were driving along Bolsa Chica when we got these great shots.

Denver was great! Steve's family was so welcoming and hospitable even though we arrived at midnight. They greeted us the next morning with coffee and doughnuts and were happy to let Gigi run around and be energetic. Claire still had a high fever so she slept most of the time and wasn't able to do a lot of playing with her cousins or see her great-grandparents.

We were supposed to leave Denver for home on Sunday afternoon, but when we called to check the flights to Austin we were told that it wasn't looking good for us to get on, so we decided to stay another day and fly out on Monday morning. It was such a joy to be able to relax and have a good time and not worry about going somewhere or seeing someone. This was probably the most relaxing part of the whole vacation!

Unfortunately I didn't think to take a lot of pictures of the family in Denver, but I managed to get some of Gigi eating a cupcake for her cousin Keegan's birthday. Yummy!
Thank you again Jenn and Jeff for putting us up for those days!
