Home, Sweet Home

We arrived home last night from our rather lengthly vacation. When we walked through our door Belle said to me, "My house! I thought I would never see it again!"

We had a wonderful time, rather than bombard you with all the details, I present...

Vacation Statistics:

We were in California for 11 days.
Drove 1753 miles with 2 kids and 2 dogs.
Visited with 24 different families in 8 towns.
And recorded the adventure with 1061 pictures on our new SLR digital camera

The drive home on New Years Day was accomplished on 3 hours of sleep, took 14 hours, and included 5 doses of cold medicine for the children.

I now have access to the internet, so I can sort through the 259 unread items in my Google Reader. I hope to start posting again soon, but for now I leave you with Picture number 857.

I lurk around sometimes, and I just wanted to tell you that every family I have ever met with a stay home dad has been one of the finest families I've known. I love your choice. Good on dad and you!

Wow someone actually got out and about over the break? The most adventurous I was was when I went to the tip (dump, refuse facility, - whatever it is called in your part of the world) in thongs (the footwear, not the underwear - well maybe it was both but I'm not telling).
That and a Wiggles concert attended by us and 8000 other toddlers - I still start to shake when I think about it.
