Well, our whirlwind vacation is over and we are settling back into our routine (well, our "only a month until Christmas" routine). Our trip was filled with all the usual adventures that go along with traveling with kids. One of our stops was at Charlestown Landing (colonial-era Charleston), where the kids got to explore a small sailing ship and watch canons being fired.
Just because we were on vacation, laundry still accumulated, so we had to make a stop at a laundromat. Nothing makes you feel farther from home - or appreciate your laundry room more - then washing your dirty clothes in a strange place.
Babies have to eat on vacation, too. Cam wasn't thrilled with the unidentified green stuff out of the baby food jars, but he ate it anyway.
He did enjoy being carried around in the backpack - except during the middle of the presentation on the Civil War submarine.
We didn't even stop doing school on this vacation. I mean, who doesn't flop down in the middle of a museum floor to fill out a workbook?
Especially if you get a certificate and pin when you finished all the pages.
It's hard to imagine we packed so many adventures into one week. It was a fantastic trip and it sets me up for another new project: scrapbooking all the pictures and souvenirs!
