Back Ater

We got back yesterday from a 2 and half weeks vacation. It was a fun, family, screaming, pooped, filled vacation. I just can't seem to get away from people trying to parent us or the poop. Taylor and Spencer had been sick when we left and it continued for the first few days of our trip, at least for Taylor. Quinten then got sick our first night. Let's just say over the last couple of weeks we threw out 7 pairs of underwear and 1 bathing suit. And did multiple loads of laundry.
On our first night Spencer decided that screaming might be fun. At supper a very drunk lady told him to shut up just loud enough for the kids to hear. She then asked us to get him to stop and asked why he was screaming, well Chris being Chris told her we asked him but he didn't answer us, go figure he's 1 1/2. She then told us that we shouldn't go out with him and we should stay home. And that she had 2 one year olds and they never screamed. Well good for you lady go have another. The screaming continued for the whole trip but at least we didn't get parented for it.
It was great to have a week just us a family and then the rest with friends and family in Penticton. Gotta love the close to 40 degree weather. Oh how I miss that.
It is good to be home and getting back into the swing of things. Once I get a good handle on the laundry I'll post pictures

It has been 40+ degrees here all week. We are heading to Ontario on Tuesday where the humidity is so bad that I'm sure it will feel like 40 degrees there too. Sorry to hear about the crazy lady incident! That happens to us sometimes and I snicker and roll my eyes. I am not as bold as Chris to make a sny remark...wish I was though! Good on ya Chris!

OMG! I HATE it when people tell you how to raise your kids! Fortunatly Zachary is a very happy baby so I don't get too many dirty looks as he doesn't cry too often but there was this one time...grrrr! I posted about it back in November. It's absolutely infuriating!
