Question: Is "It's vacation" really a valid escuse to eat any and everything we wanted with no limits while we are away from home?
Answer: Well for most people 'vacation' isn't 18 days long. So the answer for us is NO, it is not okay to be a glut- EVER.
We LOVED LOVED LOVED our time on the coast and in the boro. Thank you so much to all of you for making it so wonderful for us. Because the truth is it couldn't have been better (well maybe longer?) It wasn't the beach or the pool that made it so wonderful. It was you, all of the people. Our people.
Tim and I are P90x-ing it and going to get our butts in shape.
As for our day of travels-
we woke up at 4:20 to be at the airport by five am. Good ol' Chippy took us. on the way Adam started listing all kinds of foods. Hot dogs, Syrup, ketchup, blue berries, pizza, french fries, bananas. It is funny because we have no idea what prompted this long list of faves. We got to the airport in plenty of time to get breakfast and board the plane. At the end of the flight though all of Adam's food came back up. Ugh. This time the flight attendant was incredibly helpful and kind. The next flight went out on time and we were here by 10 am our time. Unbelievable. We were in a chair IN THE AIR! :)(please watch this video. hilarious. aunt mary showed us) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rOtEQB-9tvk
