In Xenia, Leah treated Jerod and I to dinners, desserts, movies, and games. I went with Leah to Zumba. It was a totally great workout that was very fun. I got a chance to just hang out with her and her family and it was wonderful. A special 'thanks' to Hoa who was totally the Mr. Mom every night so Leah and I could go do 'stuff' that girlfriends would do if they didn't live so far apart.
Karla spent some time in Minster while I was in Xenia
On Friday evening, Karla, Austin, and Jerod returned to Xenia to spend the night so we could leave bright and early on Saturday. Fortunately, we were at Leah's house for one of her famous parties. This time we were there for a Strawberry Fest. Needless to say we all ate too much but it was totally fun. We played games and laughed a lot. After the party I read the kiddos a bedtime story and went to bed. It is always a great time at the Pham's. My only regret is that I know that it will be at least a year before I get to hear Leah's laugh again. Well, at least in person.
This was the end of our journey. We got up at 4:00 am on Saturday and made it home in 17 hours. Overall, the trip was awesome. I can't think of a thing that was worthy of even a complaint. Thank you to everyone who helped make this trip great and affordable. I know for Karla and I, going to Florida, Alabama, and Ohio would not have been possible if we had to fly with the 4 of us. Road trips, for me anyway, are about spending time with the people you love. So, I officially dubb this trip a SUCCESS!
