You Know It's Been a Good Vacation When You Come Home Completely Exhausted!

This is how I feel right now.

Our trip was a huge success! In spite of my pre-flight anxiety and one airborne incident, the children did quite well on the cross-country trek. Once we arrived, we spent a few days in the mountains of Park City and then crashed at my sister's for some time in Salt Lake.
Highlights included: Alpine Slide& Coaster, rock wall climbing, mini golf, bumper boats, swimming, boating at Jordanelle, a trip to Seven Peaks Water Park, visiting BYU campus, shakes at Dairy Keen, game night, cousins' tea party, laser tag, a big-boy sleepover, girls' lunch out, babysitting twinkies, late nights, good food and one great big party in the park with lots of family and friends.
Thanks to everyone who came to hang out with us. You guys are all the BEST! I get such energy just being with good friends and seeing the good things you do. I have the world's best parents and most supportive brothers and sisters...thank you for making us feel like the center of the universe for one special week.
A special shout out to Amy and Scott and their girlies for hosting our gang for four long days and (especially) taking us out on the boat! You are so generous and your home is inspiring in many ways. Thanks for introducing us to a fun new game, a funny new guy and a thrilling new must-watch!
Now, I've got laundry to fold, a fridge to fill, messages to return and that what-do-I-look-forward-to-now? kind of let-down. Oh well...vacations like that can't last forever! And it's a good thing...I'm beat!

So glad you had a great time. I responded to your comment on my site.

I see Cheryl today. She is a dear friend. She doesn't have a blog, but I will definetely tell her to check on yours.

Glad you had such a fun trip.

Also, we read Twilight for bookclub about 6 months ago. You can't put it down, that's for sure. I was reading it at stop lights...

Glad to see you had such a fun time (and that the flights weren't so bad after all). There's something comforting being surrounded by family!

welcome home! I am also familiar with the post-vacation let-down feeling. It must be all the laundry piles!
