Maren's Home!

Good morning, it is Wednesday.

Last night Maren got back from her ALA conference.  It was a little touch and go for her as the weather was getting bad and her pilot wasn't at the plane, but in the end she got home with only a 30 minute delay.  Preston had a "homework" date, so he wasn't with us, but the littles and I had a very good dinner at John and Carol's house then picked Maren up from the airport.
Waiting for Mar's plane to arrive we did go up and down the escalators a couple of times, checked out the hanging airplanes and even wished for doughnuts at the little magazine store.  But after just a few long minutes Maren found her way down the corridor along with a couple of library fiends.  Lillie was having too much fun, saying stuff like, "here comes mom!...nope, that's just an old guy."...ouch.

Of course Mar brought home a few books and treats for the kiddos.  And she won a fabulous prize at one of her events for having the "most recent birthday".  Waahoo!

See you tomorrow.
