Home at Last

It's been a long journey, but after four countries, lots of planes, trains and taxis, and one really big souvenir, we are home. It felt good to sleep in our own bed and use tap water to brush our teeth. Ah, the little things that make this country great!

On the other hand, we already miss the food. Although the first thing you think about when you think about Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand and Taiwan may not be the food, it should rank right up there. We got Thai takeout last night. Not the same.

As for Island Boy, within the first 24 hours he was home he'd had his first doctor's visit and within the first 48 hours, he'd had his first excursion to the farmer's market. He's enjoying exploring the neighborhood and has even had his first trip to the driving range (it's never too early to start!).

Although he spent the first few days wanting to play all night and sleep all day, he is slowly adjusting to Pacific Daylight Time. Mommy and Daddy are doing the same.

Glad to hear you are finally home! I've been asking Peg if she had heard anything. Wow he's big! Cute too.

btw, I'm always thinking of the food when I think of Thailand, Indonesia, etc. Some good, some bad, but all interesting.

Hope to see you soon!
