We are baaaaaack!!!! It was great and its great being home. Lots of moments worth sharing. But not too eventful. This time no hospital emergency room visits, yeah. There was a close call with a Massachusetts State Sheriff threatening to arrest GM, but actually quite drama free for an O’Connell Family Vacation.
Re-entry is always tough and coming back to cold weather and short days doesn’t make it easier. Since landing we have been doing copious amounts of sleeping, reading, re-heating things from the freezer and other forms of passive entertainment. Its been nice.
Our stateside holiday was busy, filled with hot weather, swimming pools, friends, family and lots of American history and culture. There were many memorable days for me. One of those days was when I realized that all the kids are at a really good age for traveling. The busier the better. We mixed this trip up. Some touristy stuff, but mostly staying with friends and family. We went to 3 Major League Baseball games, went to 2 water parks, numerous swimming pools, had a lemonade stand, tubed down the White River and spent 4th of July at a Demolition Derby and Firework Extravaganza.
I will write more and try to get the family to contribute.
