Waiting (and waiting and waiting) for Kevin at the Oakland Airport
So, when you are leapfrogging across the world to get to your home, there tends to be quite a few flights involved. Some you make just fine, and others you miss. :) Oh, well, instead of getting him at 10:45, we got him a couple hours later. :) Not that we were EXCITED or anything!
Funny side note: We had saved the banner that said WELCOME HOME from when Bryce got home from his mission. It was a nice big plastic banner and it matched the red, white, and blue theme of our balloons, so I was pleased....Until I unfurled the banner a few minutes before we left the house for the airport, and noticed that I had saved the wrong banner. It said HAPPY BIRTHDAY! And although I truly hoped that Kev had indeed had a very happy birthday, that was just not what we were going for right then. Luckily for me, Shauna and Shelli stepped up and made a couple quick homemade posters so Kev would feel oh-so-very special. :)
