It feels mighty good to be home. Even though leaving paradise is a bitter, bitter, BITTER sweet pill to swallow, we were almost giddy to be home late last night.
Re-entry was easier this year; I think we are getting better at it. We managed to shave an hour off our return time by doing carry on only and parking near the airport. That hour sure helped everyone's attitude. We rolled into the driveway at 11:00 PM but it only felt like 9:00 due to the time change.
So, what is it about 2 kids being good as gold on the airplane but as soon as they get in the back seat of the car together they loose it? Poking, bugging, annoying, distracting, driving the parents nuts? I am not sure why it has taken us this long to solve it by putting Molly up front and I move to the back. Eureka! Peace at last.
So, not only were we happy and relieved to be in good old SEA town but we were all laughing and telling jokes in the ferry line. Nice to end the trip not wanting to throttle the kids.
Again, a huge Mahalo to Ruth & John for inviting us to stay. We had a lovely time. You guys are the BEST!!!
