Us and Them, Day 8

What was supposed to be a quick trip home turned into waiting at the Bermuda airport for an additional 6 hours for our flight. Mechanical problems delayed the plane from leaving the U.S. We were thankful the airport had wi-fi. We passed the time playing games on the iPod, checking on our flight status at, browsing that the 2 gift shops a few times, and watching old episodes of LOST on the computer. We don't have pictures of this dreadful airport wait so we will leave you with a few shots of nicer things:

Nathan and I under a moon gate. Apparently if you walk under them they bring good luck to a couple!

While Nathan snapped picture after picture of the ocean, I used my smaller camera to capture close ups of the many flowers in Bermuda. This one, the hibiscus, is very common there and is used as a hedge. This particular one is a double hybrid hibiscus.

Bermuda even has pink sunsets!

After doing some additional crafts and taking a walk, S, J, Grandma and Grandpa were anxiously awaiting our arrival at 3pm. When 3pm came and went without any signs of us, Grandpa went online to find out what was up. He was met with several emails from me explaining or delay. S was quite upset that we were so delayed. Grandma and Grandpa took the kids to the playground, which turned out to be a good idea since many of Sydney's friends were there since it was Frisbee Sunday. S had fun with her friends and J got to practice standing without support as well as sliding down the slide. Soon they were immersed in fun and didn't mind that we weren't home.

We finally got home at 9:30pm, 6 hours later. J was already in bed, but S got to stay up to greet us - well, mostly I think she wanted the presents we bought for her! The following morning we woke up at 4:30 a.m. in order to get J downtown for ear surgery at 6. J woke up as we were carrying him to the car and gave us a big, sleepy smile. I think he also said, "Welcome home Mommy and Daddy. I missed you so much." But, then again, it could have been just, "da!"

Sounds like a great trip that was lots of fun. We'll have to try out the helmet dive sometime!
