Let me start by saying–I love my family. I really do! But I’ve spent every hour of the last 6 days with them, and I’m glad to be home. Home where some of them can go to school or to work, or sleep in different rooms. That said, let me tell you about our vacation!!!

We got up VERY early on Thursday to be at the airport for a 6:20 flight. If that’s not hard, I don’t know what is. But everyone was very well behaved on the flight and it was pretty uneventful. John even slept a little bit, so it wasn’t so hard keeping him in his seat for an hour and a half.


The kids were excited with each new form of transportation we took (airplane, bus, then a “new van!”) and were excited to go to Disneyland. When we walked down the portable hallway thing from the airplane (forgive me, I can’t think of the word right now), Jenna said, “Are we in Disneyland?” I must say, that would be nice. Maybe we should talk to the Disney guys and see if they can build an airport right into Disneyland. You could wave as you get off the “ride” and Alice in Wonderland or maybe Buzz Lightyear could greet you at security. I think it’s a fabulous idea! We got to Disneyland by around 10:00, and had a Long, fun filled day.

We stayed until about 7 and we were exhausted and grumpy.
The kids were excited to go “home” to a hotel, and we were pretty exhausted when we finally got everyone tucked in. I’ll tell you more later. For now, I’ve got to go and start working on reclaiming my laundry room.
