Christmas Miles 675 - 735: Back to Wilmington

Still with me?  Wow... I'm impressed.... In fact, I can barely believe that I am still me, since reliving this exhausting experience is exhausting in itself.

Anyway, when I last left you, were being sent off with a glorious "wave," as we headed back to Wilmington for a Christmas party.

This particular Christmas party was being held in honor of the girlfriend of the one of Dave's cousins, who traveled all the way from Thailand to be there, and it was a great time.  She was super sweet and I like large family gatherings where you get to catch up with a lot of people all in one place.

I'm going to let this post be picture-heavy, since the photos really do share the story better than I could with words.

A family photo - all of those open mouths are directed at me, and are saying "Hey! You need to be in this!"

Noi, Dave, and two Lisa's

And finally, I save the best for last.  Here's the background story..

You see, Dave's younger brother decided to go away for a mini-honeymoon shortly after Christmas, meaning that he was going to miss this party.  Even though we knew that they were on their "honeymoon" of sorts (I use quotes because they're actually going on their real honeymoon in March, but I'm pretty sure that one is the 3rd or 4th one that they have planned in total) we wanted to show them what fun they were missing.  So, we took and sent them this.

Sorry for the poor picture quality, but it was taken on my phone which has a really weird colored flash.  But doesn't that look like fun!?!?  Wouldn't YOU be sad to realize what fun you were missing if you received this picture??? Needless to say, we did NOT hear from the honeymooners that night, nor did they mention it in any subsequent conversations.  Perhaps because they were so infinitely jealous of the fun that we had?  That's what I'm going to let myself think.

These holiday travels are almost over - but we still have quite a few miles to go!!! Onwards to St. Marys!
