I am still up to my neck in dirty clothes, suntan lotion and suitcase unpacking, so I'll make this brief:
Matthew was crazy--got in a ton of trouble (rode the elevator alone, insisted on the bar pool, screamed through security and pressed the emergency button in the elevator 5 times--but not when he traveled alone).
Nicholas--did great! A little bossy at times, but overall a great traveler (thank god for portable TV players with all-you-can-watch Star Wars the Clone Wars episodes).
Gabriel -- well, he had his moments, but overall it was a huge success for him too. :) No major flip outs during customs, which is awesome, and a predictable two meltdowns (minor) a day when he didn't get his way. But hey, we have that at home.
I will be sure to post some stories and photos as the days pass, but right now I am preparing a terrific interview with Chynna Laird, author of the new book Not Just Spirited; a mom's sensational journey with SPD and, you guessed it, GIVEAWAY!
Give me a day or two to wash our clothes (not that we are going to be wearing swim trunks and t-shirts anytime soon here in WA) and we'll be back in the swing of things.
Until then, I have "let down meltdowns" to contend with since all three boys stayed home from school.
Happy to be home--really.
