Good morning! I arrived back in VA yesterday after a fantastic vacation in Florida. It was bittersweet coming home. I didn't want to leave my parents especially as they were preparing for a storm to come but I also know I have to face reality at sometime. I didn't want the kids to be in the way as they prepared. The storm is going to bypass my parents but they may get a few of the rain/wind bands from the storm. It's always best to be prepared. I was also ready to see Russ. He had come home a little earlier than us because of that thing called a JOB.
The kids did fantastic on the trip. They are great little travelers. We also had taken their sweet little guinea pigs on the trip. They were also great travelers. They fit perfectly in a travel cage and rode in the back. When we were coming home we stopped overnight in a hotel in North Carolina. The next morning before we got on the road I had asked Alexis to clean out the piggie cage so it wasn't smelly as I was packing up the car to go. When I walked in the hotel room Alexis had a look of horror on her face and explained that she had cleaned the cage and put the piggie pooh in the toilet. Only problem was the pooh clogged the toilet. I needed to fix the situation so I went to the front desk to ask for the plunger and prayed they did not ask to do it themselves. I had to sneak the piggies in as it was and didn't need them in the room looking at our mess. She kindly gave me the plunger and off I went to de-clog the toilet. Thankfully it recovered and so did Alexis. She was pretty worried. After that episode we quickly ran from that hotel. There is nothing better than making great memories on a trip. This will be one I won't forget. XOXO
Now I sit with suitcases to unpack and the need to get my kids ready for school that starts next week. It seems like this Summer vacation has flown by and we haven't done nearly what I had planned. Overall we've really enjoyed our time off and time together.
Pray that the hurricane doesn't cause too much havoc for family and friends.
