Rainy rolled in at around noon on Sunday, so we spent a well-deserved evening hanging out together after trying (mostly unsuccessfully) to let Papa take a nap after his all-night drive.
It was wonderful enjoying each other's company and our lovely backyard. I must have pushed Sasha on the swing for 45 minutes - that girl sure loves her swingset! Ben exercised his inner monkey and only got injured once. And Sam spent the afternoon playing with his new rubber band gun and reading. Finally the boys' TV withdraw reached unbearable levels for them and so they went downstairs to watch The Three Stooges while I pushed Sasha on the swing a little more and Steve finally got to tell me about his adventures in Washington.
Here are a few more photos of their homecoming:
Sam's favorite way to spend an afternoon (well, second-favorite after playing Xbox)
Welcome home everybody!
