Because I misunderstood the travel times, I took the day off work to spend with my brother.

The kids and I arrived early Wed at the airport and waited about an hour before we realized that he was not coming until the next morning.

Ironically, if he had arrived according to my schedule, instead of breaking his collar bone a few hours before leaving, missing the trip and spending 3 weeks in pain, we could have spent the day at the movies or playing with the girls.  ;)


Here we are at the ODU Planetarium in Norfolk.  Looking at all the stars we can't actually see from here due to the light pollution in the city.
