Last Vacation Post

I have to mention what a good time we had with Mark's brother, Keith (or Keithy, as we all call him now) and his wife, Emily. They treated us to a great dinner the night before we left and also let the kids tear up their house. The girls had a fun time with their MacBooks and distorting images of their faces every which way. There's absolutley no convincing them now that the same thing can't be done on every laptop computer in the universe.

Keith and Emily also treated the girls to opening their own oyster and finding beautiful pearls. They even let them each pick out their own setting (Anna chose a turtle and Emma, a crab) for their pearls. This was way too expensive, but Emily insisted. Sorry there, Keithy, but you know women and shopping . .
We're just trying to get them well trained.

We also went to Downtown Disney (which was the only Disney thing we did the entire vacation) and had a great time. John M. loved the little Legoland playground.

We don't get to see Keith and Emily nearly enough and all of the kids are in love with them. I've never had this experience with all 3 of them at once, but they all started crying when we drove away from Keith's house, even John M., as he repeated 'Cheez' (his way of saying Keith) over and over again. He kept asking for him the remainder of the trip. :(

Hopefully, in the near future, we'll see them again.

Now, back to our regularly scheduled blogging program....

Sorry you're done with the vacation pics....I was really enjoying them.

Had kind of the same experience with the crying as you did. Our granddaughter cried all the way from her aunt's house in the Kentucky hills back to our hotel about how much she would miss them. She doesn't know it yet, but the same aunt is arriving here this weekend! Boy will she be suprised!!

Aunts and Uncles are great. Kids know they're loved, but at the same time they're more fun than mom and dad. (No offense!) Glad you all got to see them!

Just caught up on your vacation posts. So glad to hear you had such a wonderful time! Vacations with the kids while they are small are memories to treasure. As they get older they want to be with their friends and times like these are few and far between.

Great pictures, everyone looks like they were having a lot of fun. Glad your back safe and sound. Now back to the real world...lol
