Home again

I did not want to leave. You know that feeling you get when you realize vacation is over and you have to actually go home and do regular stuff? Yeah. It's keeping me awake tonight.

We had a great time. The weather was hot, but it felt good to me. We hit the Phoenix zoo with the four of us, Steph, Staci and her kids. It was quite the party. There was large amounts of sweating and standing under the misters along the path, but we had a blast. I think it was 105 that day. And we wore sunblock. $14 sunblock with no gluten or soy or anything else that might cause somebody to itch. Audrey itched anyway, because her incessant drooling has a nice rash going on her chin and neck. Arg. But that's another story.

We also went to the mall. It was nice and cool there.

We also had In-N-Out more times than I care to admit. I've decided it is exempt from the whole fast food thing. They even have gluten free fries. A good time was had by all. Except that now I feel gross. Oh well.

Traveling with the girls was actually really easy. The hard part was the complete lack of schedule once we got there. We kept getting compliments on how well they did in the plane and stuff. We were prepared - snacks, new toys, etc. Both of them slept most of the way. There are a few tricks to doing airports with kids, especially now, but it really wasn't hard.

I had a fun mother's day. We went up to my parents' house and had lunch with the whole fam. Then we tried to go out to eat but the girls were so tired that it didn't exactly work as planned. We ended up taking it to go and eating at home, which ended up being more fun anyway. I got a new plant and a red rose and a Music and Lyrics DVD. These things make me smile. My husband is a sweetheart. My girls are too, but they didn't exactly pick out my mother's day presents yet. :)

So, I suppose I'll try to sleep now. Good night!

  1. My Puppies (husband) got me Music and Lyrics for Mothers Day. It is one of my favorite girl movies. I love Hugh Grant in anything but especially with Drew Barrymore!
