We've had a very full couple of days, and the words are few but the images are many:
but once airborne the trip was so quick that we hardly had the chance to plow through our delectable snacks!
When we arrived at the hotel, we were very excited.
We explored every inch of the hotel, finding places to blend in with the art both inside
We topped it off with nighttime
Yesterday, the kids spent the day boosting the local economy with a sitter while I experienced the splendor of a windowless conference room.
But last night was quite special, because we had the rare pleasure of being whisked out of this downtown corporate name tag mecca to the 'burbs, where we enjoyed the hospitality of two of my cousins and their families.
These two clowns were our gallant chauffeurs, and I am the head cheerleader behind the campaign to get them a spot on the next Amazing Race.
The second cousins bonded like superglue over spaghetti and meatballs
and the most fantastic girl power.
Our generous and lovely hosts were a delight, and we had a thoroughly wonderful evening in their happy home, where the banner hangs all year round, just in case.
Wasn't that fun? Thanks for playing along, universe. Hey, if you're into drama, fortune, vomit, hot rods, swarms, endangered species, and Alice Cooper, be sure to check back later in the week for highlights and lowlights from the rest of our week in 'zonie.
