relax ye merry travelers..

The Plan:
a quick family trip the day after Christmas to attend a family party

Everyone home for Christmas—check
Flights reserved—check
Christmas dinner leftovers distributed amongst all guests to take to their homes—check
Bags packed—check
Blizzard—wait, what?!

A quick family trip turned into a major logistics puzzle as my e-mail inbox, and iPhone's text messages, could barely keep up with all the flights' cancellations.

Our revised plan involved gazing for hours at various airport
holiday decorations while sipping airport beverages

We spent quality time airport-people-watching

We saw the sun rise over the Chicago airport,
blue skies over the Arkansas airport
and watched the sun set over the Dallas airport.

Everyone home again—priceless!
