there and back again.

athens, yesterday

we're back! 
back in the south, back in our "bulldog town," back in our little home.

saying goodbye to the sunrise over the mountains

 flying is so much easier with daddy's help

the flights back weren't quite as harrowing as our trip out to utah, but i still wasn't impressed. we ended up next to the airplane bathroom with a door that wouldn't stay closed (shouldn't that be against some law? isn't it a crime against our noses?) and our laptop was completely destroyed (we pretty much got a "too bad so sad" from united).

we came home to rainy, wet, humid weather. we're really missing afternoons spent swimming, digging, catching snakes, and eating popsicles in the shady backyard. we really miss playing with our family in that backyard. while we were in utah, ellie said to me "mommy, we don't need to go anywhere. i just want to play in the yard."
it's that good.

here at home, the girls are reconnecting with their toys and we're trying to get back into a regular swing. poppy is having a hard time sleeping (therefore everyone is having a hard time sleeping).
i wish there was some way for us to visit the beehive state again very, very soon. 
i think we need a benefactor. or a private plane.
both wouldn't hurt.

more pictures (millions more, enough to jam up my memory on my phone) to come. 

p.s. - i'm excited to be back on a real computer and i'm ready to figure out how to keep up with my favorite blogs again (without reader and all that). hopefully i'll be seeing you on the internets soon!
