At the Airport

Papa and the boys

the boys enjoyed a Krispy Kreme

Mikie being silly by the aquarium

He made it! And the boys had to show him the freakishly tall escalator.

He made it! We spent about 4 hours at the airport yesterday and finally Erk arrived! It was raining all day here and the drive to the airport proved to be slow movin. It was raining buckets. We made it and Dad had said that he guessed the flight would be delayed, he was right. First it said "On Time" then "Arrived" then "Weather." Which was it? So Dad asked a lady at the info counter who was less than friendly and she told us a time it would land. So we sat. We waited and I tried calling Erk again (for the 4th time) and it rang. He answered, they were in a different city! They had circled the airport and were running low on fuel so they had to go fuel up at another airport (1/2 hour by flight, 4 hours by car). So Dad, Jack, Mikie and I ate at McD's in the airport and then the boys gotta donut. They made little friends at the aquarium thingy from Pennsylvania who also had flight issues. They were trying to fly out but had to split up their family and fly to different cities! It was a mess outside! But he finally made it - and we're so glad :)
