Road Trip to Greet Jacob!

When we learned that Jacob had a four hour layover in Atlanta on his way from Zurich to Asheville, his Dad and Stepmom and two stepsibs and P and I hit the road!  We had a rollicking adventure once we got to the airport, almost gave up connecting with him;  and then he got David's phone calls and texts and called back.
A half hour later we found each other.  He was completely amazed that we had driven so far to see him.  A completely surreal and satisfying reunion.  We had time to catch up a little over dinner before 
he raced back through security and his 7:15 flight and we wended our way past the 25 airport people who had given us [usually ] conflicting advice, rode the bus back to the international terminal where we had left our cars, and headed back home.  Worth every emotional roller coaster moment!  Welcome home, Jacob!
