After a busy and fun week, we finally made it home last night at about 8pm. I was so glad to be home, but I hated the thought of having to go back to work today. In fact, I was so disappointed about the end of my vacation that I failed to do my laundry last night and was struggling to find something to wear this morning. Ahh!
So I thought it would be fun to do a little backwards recap of our vacation. First things first … well, last things first … I was so so excited to see Emily on Saturday afternoon. She was still taking her nap when we got to my parents house. I had to sit on the couch and patiently wait for her to wake up. When she saw her dad, she was so excited and she gave us such sweet hugs. Last night when we got home, she said “I love our house!” Then a minute later “I love you too, Mama.” Ha!
I was so glad that Emily had a good time while Mike and I were in vacation. That made it even easier for Mike and I to have a good time in Memphis. And we did have so much fun. It was fun to just laugh at all the things that happened to us while we were in Memphis. We liked exploring the city “off the beaten path” and people watching too.
I will admit that the trolley cars on the streets in downtown Memphis really freaked me out. They drive right down one of the lanes of the street. The vehicle traffic shares the same lane. In fact, the cars have to cross the trolley lane to get to the center turn lane at times. I don’t know, it all just really freaked me out and I’m pretty sure I screamed at Mike more than once while we were near the trolley cars. (If you recall, Mike was the full-time designated driver.)
And … I will say that I really missed home. Memphis is not like Oklahoma.
