Arrival at Last in (not so) Sunny Florida

We left home last night around 5:45 and drove until about 3:15a.m. at which point we were just crossing the GA/FL state line. We stopped at a rest stop, hauled all the kids back into the camper, and slept until 7:15. We were back on the road by 8am, made a bunch of stops on the way to the campground, and finally got here around noon. While we were setting up the camper, we realized that somewhere along the way one of our roof vents got completely ripped off. Since it was sprinkling rain and dark clouds were looming, we decided a trip to Camper Connection for a new one was in order.
Dear husband thought for sure that Camper Connection was going to rip him off on a new roof vent, but it was only about $40. On the way back to the campground we took all 5 crabby kids to CiCi's pizza for an all you can eat buffet. I'm usually not big on buffets, but CiCi's has spinach pizza.
Back at the campground the kids watched a movie while husband disassembled the fitting on the old vent and installed the new one. About 10 minutes before he finished it started to rain pretty hard. Of course, right after he finished it stopped. I was a little tired of being stuck in the camper with the kids, so I went out for a quick smoke break and saw the coolest double rainbow- the bright one is in the correct order, the dimmer one on the left is in opposite color order. Whether you believe that rainbows are a sign from God or purely a scientific matter, I think a rainbow can make anyone smile.
Now it is raining again, but its also dark, and everyone is tired. The boys are watching TMNT, the girls are playing Uno, and for now everything is quiet.
Wish me luck tomorrow that I don't lose a kid (or my mind)...

you should be fine :) Just make sure that you go home with all the kids or people will start to ask questions :)
