Ken here. We’ve been home for a day now and are thankful for Beckett, the safe trip, and all the glad tidings from friends, family and blog visitors.
Taking the late transfer out of LAX was absolutely the correct decision. We got some extra sleep and a hot meal despite being awakened at 4:15 with a fire alarm on our hotel floor. False alarm, but we were awake for the duration after that. To top it off, the Radisson staff was largely non-responsive to the alarm. When I called the front desk they seemed unaware that there was even an alarm going off. They offered $20 off our bill to compensate for the lost sleep. Not enough but I was too tired to fight for more.
When we landed…we had quite a crowd of friends and family whooping an hollering. Sweet! Tears all around.

Then today, unexpectedly…we got a special delivery of groceries and comfort food from the Haddocks. Crazy sweet!
I know this is update is too brief…but I need to sleep too.
The local Fox station was at the airport to capture the return for a feel-good July 4 piece. They did a great job (even mentioning the blog and the Space Invaders during the anchor conversation following the piece). The one big error was getting the birth date wrong. It’s July 12, not 20.
