We are here!  We are in College Station to celebrate our Amazing Daughter’s college graduation!   There were times yesterday that we were actually wondering when we would actually get here, though!  Does not matter, we are here in beautiful College Station!

We love to travel.  It is usually painless.  Yesterday we were excited.  We were headed to Newark, then onto Houston.  Final leg was to drive the last 2 hours to College Station.  We thought we would arrive in College Station about 930 Texas time.  The best laid plans….

We arrived to go through the usual security to see our plane.  It was a beautiful site!

Hubby is checking things out.  Right after I snapped this shoot, he mentioned that we might have a problem.

These started to arrive.  Then more.  Apparently, someone decided to bring some baby powder in there luggage.  When the baggage people were unloading, it let’s just say ‘opened’ up.  They had to send a sample to the lab.  Yes, while we waited….

Finally!  We were boarding.  However, the fun was not over.  The pilots did not have the current maps.  So we had to wait some more.  Fun morning right?

We started clapping when the plane took off!

Hello, North America!

We landed in Newark a little after 430 ET.  After learning that we would not leave for Houston until after 8 pm, we wanted supper.  We found Gallagher’s.  For airport food not too bad!

Nice site!  We got out of the airport with our rental car after midnight.

Last leg was filled with a great classic rock station and our Amazing Daughter texting us back and forth.  Love it!

No, our day was not what we had planned.  However, we are here, rested and ready to celebrate this wonderful accomplishment that our Amazing Daughter has done.

We are looking forward to our time together over the next couple of days.  Friday morning is G-day.  We have promised that we will be dignified!

More tomorrow on beautiful College Station!
