R & R
Living the life of leisure, still. Different home. Different location. Same laziness. More sun though... so, that's great. Maeve breathed a sigh of relief when we disembarked the plane and she discovered that I hadn't chosen another iceburg for us to holiday on. However, she remembered quickly that she doesn't do heat... but, heat is still better than cold, any day of the week. Hands down. No competition.
Side Tangent: So count 'em. 9 pumpkin pies I've had access to in 7 weeks since we've returned from Ethiopia. Jamie and my Grandma both made 2 pumpkin pies knowing that I was coming. The pre-Ethiopia weight deficit is completely gone and rapidly heading the opposite way.... but, well, we're on holidays.
Maeve has thoroughly enjoyed getting to know her American relatives... she has been doted on by Great Grandma and Grandpa, Great Uncle Reg, Great Aunt Bernie, Great Uncle Robbie, and of course, Gran and Pop. Life is good for Maeve. She was the centerpiece for dinner last night and proved that she could entertain the troops for a solid two hours.
So, we've walked, we've shopped, and before all is said and done, we'll swim. Maeve loves her bath so this outta be fun. We will bask in the sun and hang out with the crazy side of the family (ha) for another couple of days, and return back on Friday...
