Ramblings: We're baaaaaaack.

Dear blog,

Sorry for the long absence. We were off spring-breaking it and I paid the lady that owned the house where we stayed extra to disable the internet so Jeremy couldn't do any work while we were gone. Shhhh--don't tell. He still doesn't know. But sadly, that meant no daily blog updates. When I get finished unloading all of our suitcases, dealing with overtired and schedule-challenged children, and cleaning up around here, I'll add some of the nitty gritty details of fun. But for now, a brief summary:

We went. We flew. We did Disney. We beached. We swam. We sun-burnt. We visited with our Florida friends. We missed naps. We threw tantrums. We partied with Simba, Belle, Buzz Lightyear, Mater, and the rest of the gang. We loved and hated GPS. We shopped. We ate. We wore Mickey ears. We visited with road-tripping siblings. We loved the perfect weather. We watched the space shuttle launch. We DIDN'T break ANYTHING at the house. We were attacked by seagulls. We searched for shells. We dueled with light sabers. We ate Starburst. We bribed Alex to ride Space Mountain. We woke up way before the sun to catch our flight, and now...

We need a vacation to recover from our vacation. I'm estimating it'll take a good four days to recoup on lost naps and readjust to all the time-changing we've been doing. 
         
Oh, and Avery learned that licorice+sand= a bad idea. Aidan discovered one more reason Diet Coke is awesome--the bottle's a great sand toy after you lose your bucket. 


More pics to come when I recover from waking up at 4:45 this morning...

Love the picts! Wishing that I had a nice camera instead of the one that I currently own which has a bad attitude and may or may not work when I want it to. Still mad that we lived with in driving distance of Florida and NEVER made it out. Oh well.
