Mostly because I don’t announce online anywhere when we go on vacation/leave the house. Until after the fact. Now we have practically a thousand photos (okay, maybe more like 500-800?) I need to sift through, things I need to write down, and household stuff to catch up on. Those pesky things like laundry, dishes, cooking, more laundry… Today in order to have some Lego time, the kids had to do a certain number of chores… we got the kids helping hubby roll his firewood around the lawn, I got my dining room floor/kitchen swept and mopped, two loads of clean dishes put away, shoes picked up, and various other things done today. Whoo-hoo! The fact that they were giggling as they were mopping the floor (just with damp washcloths, we roll simply around here) and singing away was an added bonus.
Pretty much need a vacation now to recover from vacation (granted, vacation with four kids is a bit of a zoo).
Anyway. A teaser?
The highlights in no particular order…
We stayed next to Rod Stewart.
Saw a girl riding a pickle.
Hubby lost his wedding rings.
We drove into water.
Got on Air Force One.
Saw an escaped crayfish terrorizing people.
I broke Ikea.
There was Lego cake.
Went on a 10mph elevator.
Saw a sea lion.
Saw the Sleepless in Seattle floating house.
It was a busy week.
On a side note, I’ve had this blog for 7+ years! Holy moly, how did it end up being *that* long ago? And yeah, how is my oldest 9yo already?
