Safe Travels



















Hello there! We have had safe and happy travels! Here is a snapshot of Little Boy ready to go (thank goodness for luggage carts!). That's all my luggage - little green bag is mostly bedding for Little Boy - I always keep that consistent no matter where we go so he has a good nights sleep! Sometimes I think it is a bit of a bother to lug around - I mean, it takes up an entire suitcase, but he is always sooo happy to see his own pillow, knit blanket, quilt, sleep sack, etc. - it is worth it! This time around I left the sheepskin in Austria and will buy him a new one for this side of the pond - he has slept on a sheepskin since he was born! Big bag (which is actually one of our smaller suitcases) - our STUFF. Duffle bag? That is almost empty! It is actually our carry on (because it is empty I can squish it down into that ridiculous size-checker for carry on luggage - after taking our jackets out). Oh, let's see... potty seat, pull ups, favorite blanket, complete change of clothes, 2 books, snacks - the normal carry on stuff for any Momma of a toddler! Yeah, I pack a potty seat - not sure where I would find another padded Elmo potty seat and you never know with a toddler - that could be a huge problem! At the last minute I left the computer and camera with DH- you have to open both up through every single security check and I thought I would have my hands full enough with a very active toddler without bothering to take photos with the camera to prove it is a digital. I did have my little camera in my suitcase though, so still managed to take some photos of some of our doings, but not as many as I usually would. It doesn't seem like much stuff, but once you have to carry it all around - ugh.

We have had fun!!! Little Boy is such a wonderful traveler - planes, buses, cars, time zone differences, visiting a ton of people, hotel rooms, different houses - he takes it all in stride. And now, happily, we have just arrived to our final destination today and this tired Momma is thankful to be home!!! I will write more later, but wanted to at least check in!

Good to see you back, Evelyn. I was beginning to think that you were without computer access up in Canada. We all will be watching for pictures then.

welcome home! you are blessed to have such a good traveler in Little Boy. Train Boy can't hold still well for any period of time,whichmakes air travel and airport aiting times pretty miserable for us, and everyone around us...

Anyway- I'm hijacking to talk about me- bad!!

I am so glad you're back safely!

Glad to hear your travels went well. Hope the resettling here goes smoothly too.

The top looks great - some feathers would look really nice quilted in the open spaces.

Welcome back!
