Happy to be away and Happy to come home

little person, big bright world
We're back from a gorgeous and relaxing week in Maui and I feel incredibly grateful for it. A few things about the trip and now being back:

  • Vacationing with a set of our parents/the girls' grandparents is the only way to go. Andrew's mom and step-dad are the ones who made this trip happen for us (they own the timeshare) and they are wonderful companions. The girls' loved all the adult attention and we got to do just-us stuff like dinner out, afternoon beach/pool time, and a romantic sunset whale watching cruise that never would have happened otherwise. 
  • Water play all day = awesome naps and bedtimes.
  • I got caught up on all my television and have some serious adoption related posts to write! Expect reflections on Parenthood and Grey's Anatomy adoption themed stuffs soon!
  • S got her first tooth while we were in Maui!
  • It's good to be home. 


  1. Wow - a vacation, with bulit-in babysitters (aka grandparents who love your kids and spoil them rotten) and in Maui?! Count me as one envious momma! Glad you had a wonderful time!

    1. We went on vacation once with my in-laws and it was great!
