We are on our way!

We are back and Nila and I are working diligantly on the mountain of laundry. I tried to start going thru the vacation pictures, but Jason can easily take 500 pictures when we are just out for a walk - so a whole weeks worth is just overwhelming. I figure I will just start at the beginning...

Our flight left around 7:30 so we had to leave the house around 4:30 and of course as soon as we got to the airport we were all hungry. Nila jammed a yogurt while we waited for Jason to park the car.

Then she got a sandwich.

Our flight was delayed of course so we spent quight a bit of time hanging in the terminal. Nila had her baby along and she can usually play with her for hours. Nila has really been into putting her baby to sleep lately saying "baby sleepy" "baby dodo" and setting her down to sleep. What is really funny is the odd places she chooses to put her to sleep. A while back we have a great photo of the poor baby out to sleep on the deck in the rain (Nila put her there when it was raining). While waiting in the terminal Nila put the baby on the top step of the main flight of stairs where everyone enters the terminal - told Jason the baby was going dodo and left her. Jason was a bit skeptical about this and was relieved when ten steps away she got a surprised look on her face and ran back to the baby. Jason thought she was getting her, but it turned out she only forgot to kiss the baby goodnight. Kids learn a lot from their parents, but I can vouch for the fact that I have never left her or Jonas on the top step of a flight of stairs to take a nap.

We arrived in Palma - the capital - at around 10 or 11 and then had to haul all our junk out to the rental car. I had Jonas in the sling and was pushing the stroller with Nila in it while Jason hauled our three bags and two car seats. For some reason this trip confirms that we are officially adults. It might have been all the luggage that we would have formerly scorned or maybe it was renting a car and changing the kids into pjs before hitting the road to find the resort, but its official - we are adults.

Can't wait to read more. Reading about the Mettlers and Baby O usually is my dose of humor for the day. Sarah, maybe adult..but always young in my eyes.
