Family Reunion

Ahh! Huge sigh of relief to finally be back home with my girls and not in a car. Our weekend was spent in the super windy city of Pampa with the whole of the McKean family (well, the immediate family). Carrie and Jacob are back from China temporarily. It is always fun to hang out with my sister-in-laws. I don't know how I got so lucky.
Majaunta tried to fatten me up with biscuits and gravy (my favorite breakfast), and for the first time ever I ate my way through a whole foot long sub at Subway. It was veggie, so perhaps that will seem more tempered.
The weekend was nice and relaxing, Carrie brought me back a scarf that I had lusted after in Beijing...somehow she managed to get the price down to a reasonable rate (I had no luck when I tried in December, but I imagine her Chinese is much better than mine).
The only downside to the trip was the 6 1/2 hour drive it took to get back...we were given a truck in order to bring home our new A/C, heater, and year's worth of pellets for our stove. The poor truck isn't the fastest of vehicles and up the hills it topped 40 mph. I followed Chris the whole way and without him to chat with or even the dogs to keep me company it was a long journey. Now we just have to wait for our handyman (Chris's dad) to come put in all our new equipment. Thank goodness I won't be pregnant and hot in the middle of the summer.
