A Much Needed Break

Last week we spent five days in San Diego attending the wedding of a very good friend and then catching up on family time. We visited the San Diego Zoo (my personal favorite) which was exciting because it was Prim's first zoo visit EVER!! She really liked and cried when we left the panda bears! Needless to say we left the Zoo with a few stuffed animals to remember our time there!!
We got a chance to visit the Stucky's, spend time on the beach and pet the Navy's dolphins. The kids were awesome! They endured waiting around for wedding pictures, at least three late nights (past 10pm) and funky nap times. They remained happy, excited and just plain wonderful. Thank goodness for wonderful travelers! It's one thing we never take for granted with the kids. G was always an amazing traveler. His first flight was at 7 months and since then has endured many moves and visits to more different countries than most adults. Prim, for all of her issues with change (who can blame her) is great at a hotel. It takes a day or so to adjust but she loves all of us sleeping in the same room. She actually cried when it was time to come home. Poor little thing. If she had it her way we'd all go to bed at the same time and sleep in the same room.
I've definitely realized that Prim is not a homebody. She very much prefers to be out of the house-even if it's only running errands. When we're in the car and she finds out we're on our way home she starts saying "no home!". She knows that it usually means nap time is soon to follow.

Thanks to everyone who has responded to my last post. What a blessing to hear your stories and words of encouragement.

PS-We stopped at the Thai Embassy in LA on the way down to register the adoption. Done. Finally.
