Much Needed Easter R&R

So enough about our move!!!  It is most of the focus these days, but we do still have a life outside of moving to California.  And we took advantage of that last week.  The family headed south to Vero Beach for fun in the sun with Mimi & Poppa.  As usual, they were the hosts with the mosts.  They spoiled the grandkids (and Scott and I, too).

The best part about the trip was spending time together as a family.  Scott has been on the road since January.  This was our first time to kick back and unwind in two months.  It was also the most time we have spent as a family.  We all needed this.

On Wednesday, three of us flew home; Scott was back to work; Jaley's vacation continued.  She stayed a few extra days with Mimi & Poppa for some special time.  They headed to Sea World and lots of other fun places.  On Friday, she flew back.  Yes, my baby girl (still only 6) flew as an unaccompanied minor.  Sarah flew at 7 and Jaley wanted the chance to fly solo, too.  This was her only chance before heading West.  Thankfully, it was only a quick 80 minute non-stop flight.  While I worried, she never missed a beat.  She sat next to other kids on the flight and wasn't phased in the least about traveling alone; she wanted vacation to last forever.  I can't say I blame her, but I sure was happy to have my baby girl back home.  Kids are so much work, but I sure do miss them when they are away.  

Now we are back to  reality.  Scott is back to California, the kids are back to school, and I'm back to relocating our family.  Our house goes on the market tomorrow and we are headed to California in a few weeks to try and buy a new (to us) one there.  Until then, we are treasuring our fun in the Florida sun and glad the great weather followed us home.

That is life in the stroller lane.
