We're back! I'm almost done unpacking and laundering and sorting and uploading pictures and all that. Vivian's finally napping- she's not hardly slept for several days, thanks to a combination of travel and cutting a molar, so that's been fun. I think Daniel was secretly glad to go back to his quiet office today. I'm trying to use her naptime to finish up everything here and am ignoring the giant mess Ethan is making of the living room as he plays with his dried beans.
It was a really nice trip- the kids were just a little fussy on the plane trips, so we didn't irritate more than just the people sitting closest to us. We had a fun visit with my parents and my brother and his wife and did a few things around their city. And Daniel and I had a lovely 26 hour break from the kids when we went over to Charlottesville, VA and toured UVA and Monticello. Definitely a good trip!
And we decided that this trip pretty much represented the most complicated that travel will be in our near future. Soon we'll have kids that don't need naps scheduled in and we'll be on booster seats instead of carseats and everyone will be happy to read or watch DVDs on the plane rather than wanting to scream and run around. So we're hopeful for future trips! But at the moment we're out of money and energy, so will be home for a while :)
Here are some pictures of the trip!
