Here's how I know it was a great trip

I would love to post a million pictures from the Grand Canyon trip but I can't because I didn't take my camera.  Believe it or not I had a good reason for this.  I figured there would be three other cameras going on the trip so I would rather leave the camera with PB so he could get some pictures of the kids and their adventures while I was gone.

He did so I don't regret it.

Except some of you might think I took an imaginary trip last week.  I really didn't.  Here's proof.  And here.  Please ignore the awful airplane hair.  And lack of makeup.  We left at 5:30 AM.

I couldn't have asked for a better trip with the girls.  

I also couldn't ask for a better homecoming.

I really missed talking face to face with PB.  I squeezed in phone calls when I could, but it's just not the same.  The kids were asleep when I got home late Saturday night so I was pounced on in bed Sunday morning.  It was the best wake-up call ever.

But here's how I know it was a great trip:  I was able to hit the ground running yesterday (actually, still hobbling a bit because it was a 12 mile hike roundtrip).  I came home feeling energized and motivated and not overwhelmed by the busy week ahead.

What a gift going into the busy holiday season!

So I'm off to get back to my routine minus the stressed out look on my face.  Looking forward to a great day.
