Forbidden Fruit

Well friends, I am happy to report that the Locke family has returned safe and sound to this side of the pond. Once back on US soil at the airport while we were waiting for our bags to arrive, the backpack Cory was wearing became of great interest to the Agriculture dog (I guess like the drug dogs only they sniff for agricultural products). The security guard who was leading the dog around asked to see Cory's backpack. Sure enough, inside one of the pockets was an apple that I had grabbed in the British Airways lounge back at Gatwick that I had completely forgotten to eat. So that tiny little apple sent us through a completely different customs line before we could leave. In our special line, which was in a completely different room, they had to hand search EVERY single one of our bags! Please keep in mind that all of our bags were extremely full containing everything we didn't want to be away from for the past six weeks. It was quite a sight and all because of one small apple which in this case, was truly living up to its nickname.

Thank you all for keeping up with our adventures in London through the blog. I've had many people ask me if we are going to keep the blog going now that we have returned and the answer is YES!! So feel free to contine to check every now and then to see what daily life is throwing our way.
