Sitting in the airport watching all the planes go by.

I need to hire a trip planner who is better at it than me.  We are at the Denver airport waiting for our connecting flight.  We have a 3.5 hour layover.  Every once in a while it would pay to not be so cheap for goodness sake. I really didn't pay any attention to how long our layover would be.  We had a 3 hour layover and the plane is already dealyed for 35 minutes. 

At least I got a comfy chair with an outlet.

EB is watching Crazy Horse on the iPAD touch he got for his bithday.  The movie is 1 hour and 53 minutes and it took 4 hours to download.  Ironic isn't it.

We were in Tucson for a conference.  Okay I was at the conference and he was lounging by the pool.   The weather was wonderful.  87 the last two days.  I did my share of sitting at the pool as well, although I was in the shade most of the time or covered up with pool towels or both.  You know, tender pasty white skin.

One night of the conference they had a BBQ with steaks the size and shape of Texas.  I ate veggies and dessert.  Lots of dessert.  After dark, they brought out this huge telescope and we were able to see the rings on Saturn.  It was incredible.  The gentleman who set it up, had the coolest laser pen that looked like it was touching the sky.  I wish the kids could have seen it.  I am still literally star struck.  I have never seen anything like it.

The night sky is so much more awesome in the mountains!
I hate a long layover, but it sounds like you're doing your best to enjoy it.
