And a lazy lazy mama.
This morning was our last at the village. We went to breakfast later than usual, because Paul and I were madly trying to pack up all of our stuff (plus a metric ton of toys and games that the boys were given during our stay; we really need another bag), and the boys were industriously… Continue reading Leaving the Village
We did make it to see Shamu last night, and he was all geared up in this pirate duds. This is a pretty bad picture - Shamu kept jumping up and down, and I'm not much of a photographer, so I couldn't compensate.

Honestly, if we never went to any of the theme parks, this would be an unbelievable vacation. I couldn't stop smiling… Continue reading Wiped Out But Happy
