Home at Last… and Awake at 4:30am

Both Josh and Zoë slept fitfully on the 12-hour flight back, albeit not as comfortably as during the trip over.  We arrived home at midnight and by then Chris and I were so tired from not really having slept on the flight, but the kids were bright and perky and wanted to play.  Zoë was up at 3-ish, wanting to go to the washroom, wanting to wash her hands, wanting some milk.  I finally surrendered and got up with her at 4:30am and she’s as bright and chirpy as can be.  Someone’s going to crash later…

Our flight home was delayed by over three hours, but thankfully, we were notified ahead of time so that we actually had time to go to the spray park with the cousins before we left for the airport.

The water was really cold, but it was another perfectly beautiful summer day and the kids had a blast.

Its a great thing that the cousins got to have one last 'splash'!

You have a fantastic day sweetie and get some blessed rest!

Nothing worse than jet lag after vacationing in different parts of the world. I try to sleep on the plane when my kids sleep so I'd have the energy to keep up with them when we land. Take care and get well rested.

Lori said...

So thankful you had such a nice trip. I am sure it will take some days to adjust to being home. The pictures are adorable and look like so much fun! Have a nice weekend!

I can't imagine having jet lag and then being woken up to a perky kid at 4:30 am. I'm sure you're all going to need to take naps for awhile.

Loved the pictures of the splash park. I'm sure it was hard having to say goodbye.

Glad you guys made it home safe! That park looks really cool. I hope your little ones get back on their normal schedules soon so you can get some much needed sleep! 4:30 AM is way to early!

Joy said...

What fun! That shot of the ladybugs on the flowers is stunning. I'm glad you and your family made it home safely.

Welcome home safe and sound, and I do agree - travel delays are infinitely more bearable when they aren't spent in the airport or worse - sitting in the plane on the tarmac!

That spray park looks awesome. So much fun. I'm glad your trip was wonderful. So sorry about the jet lag.
