We are home!
We are awake!
Its 4:54 am!
My children went to bed at their regularly scheduled time of 7 pm last night but got up for the day at 1 am!
I am tired!
My children are scavenging breakfast for themselves.....by eating the pizza crusts that I left on the dinner table last night.
International travel with three children under the age of five, one of whom has a severe food allergy and thus every meal becomes the Spanish Inquisition, is not really a "vacation". However, it was a lovely trip and we had a great time seeing the family.
I've been toying with starting a private family blog, a diary of sorts (name ideas, anyone? I was thinking the family joke of Whaddya say Bern...but that seems hard to spell). There I will post in excruciating detail every single day of the trip. What, don't you all love being forced to sit through other people's vacation pictures? I kind of hate that. I had a landscape architecture teacher in college who started half of his lectures with "now here are some slides of when I went on vacation in blah blah blah....heheh, isn't it great I get paid to force 200 youngsters to watch my vacation slides?"
I will, however, post a short (haha) recap of the trip.
Wow, I did a really good job cleaning out the fridge before we left. Our options for breakfast include lime juice, barbeque sauce, and.....nothing. I'm having a Milano cookie I found in my luggage. All the pizza crusts have been devoured by the children.
