In terms of travel difficulties, yesterday was happily calm. Timmy slept the entire flight, sparing the crowded plane from his vocal protests about being restrained. Robby was content playing on my iPad while Scott helped him strategize the best ways for the plants to kill the zombies in the game. The biggest inconvenience was the burning in my arm from holding a resting Hamlet, but I didn't dare move for fear of waking him up.
After a long six days away, we arrived home in the early afternoon. Robby immediately took off to check the status of his tomato and bean garden while Timmy felt compelled to systematically activate every toy within reach. I could tell that they were both happy to be home.
Watching Hamlet toddle around and play throughout the rest of the afternoon, I was astonished with his recovery. He went from battling a fever so high it caused an elevated heart rate to his normal curious, active and giggling self within a few days. I am so glad to have my happy little Hamlet back!
Today will be spent with laundry, a trip to the farm to pick up our CSA, and just resting. After this "vacation," I think I have earned a little down time!
