25/May/2017 - THEY'RE HOME!!

They're finally home! Yippee!! And not a moment too soon, as just the next day after they left, martial law was declared in Mindanao!

To give you an idea of what Grump was reduced to eating whilst his family was away, here is a pic of his breakfast: tofu, (straight from the container!), with blueberries.

Lola, Sweetie, Kuya, and Dodong weren't due to arrive until late at night, so Grump waited until the evening, then drove off to the Atlanta airport.

Somewhere around McDonough he got stuck in an absolutely horrible traffic jam.  At 10:00 pm!!  There was construction on I-75, and all the northbound lanes into Atlanta got smooshed into one lane.  Ugh!!  With all the trucks out driving at this time of night, traffic was an absolute nightmare!

It took an extra hour to get through that mess.  Grump was worried he was going to be late to pickup Sweetie, Lola, and the kids, so he hurried as best he could to the baggage claim area where they were to meet.  Fortunately for everyone, Sweetie's flight was late.

Grump was mostly alone, again:

An Empty Baggage Claim Area

But soon, (no more than 10 minutes at the most!), the family arrived!  We were together again!!

Kuya, Grump, and Dodong reunited at the airport

It was after midnight now, but the kids were VERY HUNGRY, so on the way home we stopped at an IHOP, and ate what could be a very late dinner, or a very early breakfast.

Finally, around 4:00 am, we rolled into our driveway.

Home at last!
