We made it home.
We traveled yesterday - it was a long, but blissfully uneventful trip.
Well, except for the part where we planned on buying snack boxes on the plane to feed our family (after spending $40 on mediocre fast food for lunch- figured the boxes were a better bargain). We went to the desk - they said they were offering the boxes. We checked the board - yes on the boxes. We got on the plane and the attendant announced that they'd be offering the boxes.
Then she actually got to our seats (and we were all starving)...and she said that they didn't have any boxes, but would we like some trail mix or nuts? Hello...nut allergy here and 4 hungry kids (not to mention the adults). We explained our situation to her. She paused, looked at us like we were positively insane for relying on an airline for anything (I KNOW)...but then she wrangled up a first class meal for us to share. I'll tell ya what - those first class tickets just might be worth their insane price. I was starving and had been living on pretzels and cheese all day, but that food was GOOD. Really good.
Anyway - we survived.
Our vacation was amazing. Truly amazing. To prove my case, I took approximately 1,300 pictures. I'm not kidding! Normally I would have stayed under a thousand pictures, but then my Dad let me use his camera...a Nikon D300. Oooh, baby. That thing ROCKS. I'll try to pick out some of the best shots to share with you in the next few days.
The first thing we did when we got home was head to our raspberry patch for a treat, and we weren't disappointed! Then we got the kiddos to bed, grabbed a bite to eat, and hit the pillow. There's nothing like your own bed, ya know? I'm happy to be home. Not as happy as I usually am - it was especially hard to leave this time - but happy.
Stay tuned for lots of pictures!
