And then Saturday came, and we had to leave, and it was sad because I definitely left part of me in North Carolina. That trip was so much fun.

We had stayed up late the night before (I'm talking past one, kids), and getting up at 5:30 was so. difficult. but we did it. We ate breakfast quickly, grabbed our bags and hit the road. We made it to the car rental place, and took the shuttle to the airport, went through security, and waited for our flight. 

This was a long one, but it was fun. We talked, took pictures, and played games for the majority of it.
We arrived in Minnesota and maneuvered our way across what seemed like the entire thing. After waiting, we finally got to board. This was the first flight where none of us were seated together, but it was totally fine. I got to just think about everything that had happened (and also how horrible I felt on this flight even though all the others had been really wonderful), and came to the conclusion that I wanted to go straight back to NC. (oh wait, i already knew that)

We finally landed in Milwaukee, and exchanged stuff we'd packed in other peoples bags, walked to the entrance, and had a hearty reunion.

(Just to let you know, I may be completely wrong about all of this recap because I was basically sleeping the entire time. Or at least that's what it felt like because I was completely exhausted.)

(honestly idek why it looks so much warmer than MN, but it does. and also I will say I felt very sad to be home, and idk why at all)
