My family and I checked out of our Houston hotel, picked up the gondola-on-trailer at the Boy Scout Headquarters, and made our way north towards Irving. Like before, the drive was enjoyable and the scenery, beautiful.
We all have our favorite Sonic drinks, and because we don't have very many Sonic locations near Newport Beach, we stopped into several on the way up the highway. Yes, that does mean that we also took many potty-breaks, but that should be expected with a 7-year-old and a 10-year-old.
I was happy to be living out the "family truckster dream".
Just before sunset, we arrived back at Lake Carolyn, launched the gondola, and Chris rowed her back to the docks - with just enough time to prepare her for his 9pm cruise.
Tonight I'll sleep well, with nothing to worry about but my flight.
