Isn't that how all vacations go? You stall the car (and then the car stalls you) and the mattress always feels like it was made for fairies.
Adorable pictures.
I hope you had fun on your trip! =D

Even the good times are full of stresses. We'll be together in St. Geo. next month for baby blessing. Looking forward to good times and stresses of it.
