Welcome to America

They made it through customs! It took 1-1/2 hours and finally they came walking around the corner. Carl and I thought that maybe something had gone wrong. Just way too many people being processed by way too few agents.

The tired and happy travelers, with dad.

That's everything they own on that luggage cart.

Welcome home kids, sign courtesy of Rondi and Neil.

Shannon getting reacquainted with Lili.

Welcome home baskets with the basics, toothbrushes, toothpaste, shampoo, a Tom Tom GPS for Grant, a new hummingbird feeder for Grant.

Getting settled in.

Today, Monday, we've spent the whole entire day out shopping.

Wednesday we're going to Bonneville.

More to come of the adventures of the return to the empty nest.

The Big Catch

It took 3 years, but Shannon finally caught the big one and is bringing him home.
Grant and Shannon are on their way home to live in California.

I'm looking forward to all the excitement with them being here and planning their upcoming wedding.
