Final Stop - The Serven Clan
It was with mixed emotions that we left Plano, TX on Sunday morning. While eager to see home again, the road before us also signaled the end of a delightful, refreshing, and much needed family vacation.
Well, almost the end, but not quite. The Serven family had invited us to stop by their home on that final leg of our trip and we were scheduled to have lunch with them on Monday before finally heading home. BUT, we made better time along the way than we had anticipated... and the Servens graciously opened their home to us Sunday night! Some of us had met all of them before, and some of them had met all of us, but this visit marked the first meeting of all of us and all of them! We greatly enjoyed our time with them - again marked with good discussions and fun games. Dutch Blitz, to be specific. Thanks, Servens!
Shortly after noon on Monday, August 8, we finally loaded our stuff into the car one last time and turned our faces homeward!
