This picture is not home. Actually the view from the top of Camelback Mountain.

I’ll write some sort of trip recap post later, but right now we are home. Everyone slept nicely in their own beds, we are getting right back into our regular routine.

I don’t know how it is for anyone else, but yesterday when we returned (and when we return from all vacations really), I felt like a real pioneer woman. Unpacking, doing a mountain of laundry, hard-boiling eggs for myself and making breakfast bars for the kids, assembling a healthy and light dinner after a weekend of tacos and beers.

Meanwhile, Marcus and Critter went to the grocery store, he shoveled the driveway, took the garbage out, did the dishes and prepared the house so that the Terminator could robot vacuum its way across the main floor.

As for tonight, it is our hope that we will get to sit down and put our feet up.
