First Vacation!

all packed in the car and ready to go!
so thankful for video's!

everyone's clothes laid out for the next morning

our awesome suite! and we did not have to pay extra for children!

Reilly was very impressed with her first hotel stay!

they ended up bugging each other so much that Danny slept on the floor and Gerri got the whole thing :)
(she is SO smart! )

Super Lu was very tired from traveling

Super Lu is a good traveler - no food or pit stops!

she became a back seat driver :)
(are we there yet!?)

welcome to the reunion!

The kids promptly took out the camping chairs and cards!

go fish!

Lu helped cook!

Lu is a little loosey goosey! :)

she helped Reilly play cards

she really liked Danny's hat!

yah! Yogi!

can you see Gerri and Reilly's names? :)
Danny and Victoria wanted to pull out a sharpie and add their names, Reilly could not figure out why her name was there :)

best part was the golf cart!

go Ukraine!

Victoria's favorite part of vacation! Truman! :)

One of my most favorite people in the world!! :)

a tradition! :)

so much fun!

first s'mores! yummy!!

we put all the mattresses up in the loft and the kids LOVED it! :)
and we loved having them all up and out of the way!

almost all of the families there!

our Ukraine group! :)

time to go home! a bit punchy by now!

after vacation blues :)

when you have NO internet you have  a lot of emails waiting for you!!
omg! :) I hated to look at my phone :)

unfortunately we also brought some internal critters home from the yucky pool water,
it has hit Victoria and Reilly the most :( Victoria has had fevers and came to work one day, she was very helpful :)

while waiting on stool samples (yup - fun stuff) the girls are on this:

over all, it was a very vacation, the 11 hours travel split between two days was the only way to go, that was all the kids could take. we found nice hotels to stay at with pools and it was a great way to relax.

Reilly was confused why I kept getting and giving hugs and why there were so many kids from Ukraine there :)
but she did everything I did, swim, water slide, etc. fun fun stuff!!

her English has really come along now and one month home was a turning point.
The kids all just finished up a month of summer school and will have camps for the next couple of weeks, gymnastics, minecraft and acrobatic, dance camp :)

I LOVE this! I hadn't seen most of those! Oh gosh though, the pool. SO SO sorry they got hit by that. LOVE the Ukraine photos!! AND he's one of my favourite people too! I wonder how weird he'd think I am if he met me in person! LOL I would be sobbing the ugly cry probably haha!

So glad Super Lu had fun! It appears she had the 'pool thing' while still there, she had her head in at least one bucket! LOL

Love you! <3
