We have returned safely to Minneapolis after our getaway to Turks & Caicos! It’s always so hard to return from a vacation, isn’t it?
It was a lovely trip, though a not-so-lovely travel day back to the U.S. Our flight was delayed from Turks & Caicos due to a mechanical issue, so we arrived in Charlotte an hour late. When we got there, customs was really backed up, so we were stuck on the plane another hour before they would even let us off. Our connecting flight back to Minneapolis was long gone by the time we finally de-planed, and unfortunately, there was no room for us on a flight from Charlotte until 10 pm Monday (today). Instead, U.S Airways flew us to Philadelphia for the night and put us up in an Embassy Suite by the airport. Then we were on an 8 am flight back to Minneapolis this morning. Of course, there was a snowstorm in Philly, so were delayed another few hours. We finally landed in Minneapolis around noon today.
We hurried home so we could go pick up our little lady from her stay with her BFF Sonya. It sounds like she had an awesome time during her visit! Thanks to Sonya’s parents for watching Matilda!
We were both supposed to work today, but ended up using another day of PTO for this little travel dilemma. Oh well, what can you do? The rest of the trip was great, so I’ll get back to sharing the details of that instead of complaining.
All in all, it was a really interesting tour. It’s only a half hour tour, so its definitely worth a quick stop. They are in the process of opening a restaurant at the farm, but until then, they recommended we check out Bugaloo’s for some conch. We figured we’d listen to the locals’ advice.

I’ll be back soon with more pictures from the rest of our trip! Time to head to the grocery store and get back on track with the “real” world…
