    We loved being with you and the children. Glad you are home. Hope all of you feel better soon. We love you. Gma

  2. Glad you're home! Maryland welcomed you with some pretty nasty weather. This weekend was stuffy!! I can't wait to see you. :)

  3. I'm glad you made home in one piece. I can't believe how much your luggage weighed! That's unbelievable. I'm glad you enjoyed your bday. I know how it feels to have that post-vacation let-down. I'm sure you will be glad to get back into your old routine. And there's nothing like sleeping in your own bed. Thanks for including all of us in your vacation. It was fun!

  4. Woooosh! That's HEAVY luggage to have to carry!

    Poor Butterfly. And poor you.

    Glad you didn't come back yesterday, it was horribly hot and nasty. Today is much better! Thanks for bringing the cooler air with you!

  5. WOW!! Glad to hear you made it back safe and sound!!

  6. Welcome back!!!!

    (and, sending some hugs for your homesickness...I'm sure it was incredibly tough to leave)


  7. Oh my ... I so remember those not-too-distant traveling days. It really is a joke to travel with kids ... especially when sick. You go girl! Glad you all made it back safe. I'll bet you are missing home and family already!

    Yay for being home! When you say that people "questioned the twin status" do you mean they asked whether the boys were twins? That seems like a ridiculous question. I bet they feel silly after they ask it :)

  9. I can only say I feel for you. Im glad you made it HOME tho! maryland was missing us i think! =)

  10. Welcome back! Hope you all feel better soon.
