    We got into town around 9:30 this morning. We had 3 flight transfers with about 6 hours of layovers. We took a red eye to maximize my vacation time and save money. When we got into town Teresa was absolutely exhausted, I managed to get about 4 hours of sleep.

    Dad picked us up at the airport and Teresa passed out for a few hours. Dad and I went out for lunch at fado's irish pub.

    Dad and I are really close and I haven't seen him in 2 years I'm really glad I got to spend time with him. Hes absolutely awesome and if I ever had kids I'd be hard pressed to be 1/10th the dad he was to me.

    Someone probably pulled back on the throttle of an old Harley, the ground shook... it was pretty extraordinary, and PAMB couldn't control himself...

    So how was the reunion? We're going to one for my wife's family at the end of the month.
