We Made It!

The rest of the vacation was really great. Here's a few highlights (and a few lowlights) to summarize the rest of the trip.

Highlight: Kids playing with the cousins
Lowlight: Kids fighting with the cousins

Highlight: 50 cent movie day at the dollar theater, seeing Horton Hears a Who
Lowlight: Missing all but 5 minutes of the movie because Ben would not sit still
Highlight: Watching Ben go up the mall stairs (3) and down the stairs, then up, then down, up, down, up, down, updownupdown. It was hilarious.

Highlight: Another fun zoo trip
Lowlight: Missing the fun zoo trip because I was in bed with a stomach bug.

Highlight: No one else got the stomach bug.

Highlight: Seeing new additions to the family.
Highlight: Seeing how the other kids are getting so darn big.
Highlight: Holding baby GIRLS (and playing with a two year old girl!)
Highlight: Hearing Zack say, when seeing his newest baby cousin, "She wooks wike a pincess" There was awe in his voice, and I didn't even know he knew what a princess was.

Highlight: Fourth of July Parade and Fireworks
Lowlight: Chasing Ben all over creation during the parade and fireworks.
Highlight: Strangers smiling at Ben running all over creation during the parade and fireworks.

Lowlight: Blowout diapers in the car on the way home
Highlight: Zack pooping in the potty at the rest stop on the way home.
Highlight: No one throwing up on the ride to Florida (I was very concerned this would happen.)

I know I'm forgetting stuff, 20 hours in the car will do that to you. We decided that we should leave Friday night after the fireworks display. We drove all night while the kids slept. I should say that Kevin drove all night while the kids and I slept. I did relieve him for a few hours, but he did most of the driving. We drove it straight through and arrived home exhausted last night about 9 PM.
