We let the boys go back downstairs for one last swim before we packed up.
Packing up didn't take long. We were not in a hurry to get back home.
But we needed to. Lunch was Subway, and I was getting excited to see my little dog.
I love driving at naptime. It's quiet. I listened to my Book on playaway, Paper Towns, it's a nifty young adult book about a Florida and Road Trip, and I had no idea when I picked it up from Book Club how perfect it would be to be listening to it on this trip. But I got a big kick out of it.
They are building a new bridge as we cross the Ohio, going Back Home Again in Indiana.
I had to take some pictures. Because it's going to be completely different the next time we travel to Florida. This trip was so huge, so epic, it will be a long while before we tackle another one like it.
But it was so good to get home. Jacob ran around the house, chasing Princess, yelling "Isa Daw!" He missed her. Initially I don't think she missed us, she was skitchy about all our noise. But then she came around let Jake do all his mischief, and she didn't leave. She may have been happy to see us come home too. It was evident she got a little spoiled, she looks a little thicker than when we left 2 weeks ago. But she was good while we were gone for Miss Macey, so it's ok if she got a little spoiled. Then the boys didn't want to go to bed at a reasonable hour, or go in their own beds. They were crazy, they may have been spoiled too. School Starting may be a rough adjustment for them! But I'm happy to be back and sleeping in our own beds. After 2 weeks of varying levels of good and bad and horrible beds, I find there really is no place like Home.
