Back from Vacation...a.k.a. Back to Reality

Taking off for over a week and half was delightfully exhausting. The quick summer break between semesters was well spent visiting family in various locations across the west. Between cousin sleepovers, movie marathons, and wii tournaments for the kids, girls night-out, guys night-out, staying up to the wee hours of the morning every night catching up with brother and sister-in-laws, Mother's Day with extended family, and my first girly Tea party, I think we had more fun than one should! And that was only the first half of our trip.

After visiting Mister's family, we headed to visit mine. We rock hounded for the first time, saw more wild baby colts than one could count on both hands and feet, and celebrated Jelly Beans 1st birthday. But to let all of you in on a little secret, there is nothing like sleeping in your own bed undisturbed for a full eight hours!!!

I love going on Vacation. But there comes a point where I'm ready for home and my Bed. I feel like I have been on vacation the last month Europe, Idaho, Utah and next week having family in town.

It is wonderful to spend time with missed loved ones, but the comforts of home eventually beckon to me too!

How fun! Do we get to see any pictures? How many kids do your brothers have now?

Yes E~ pictures are on their way! :) Mister downloaded all of them to his computer so there is a transfer involved.

My oldest brother has three, and the next in line hasn't any yet.
