We made it!

It was like a dream- the easiest long flight I've ever had.  The boys were angels.  We didn't even need the secret weapon (read: iPad).  

L did have two seizures- one in the Taipei airport, one as we landed in LAX, but it could have been much worse.  I was so grateful for the fruit plate meals, and that we were able to bring our own food through immigration.

And now we're here.  Yesterday was long, and M reacted to the very first thing we gave him to eat in the US- a bottle of milk  - but we made it to bedtime without naps or killing each other, and jetlag seems to be behind us already.

The kitchen is stocked with Whole Foods goodies (thank you, Nana!), we're walking distance from the beach, and my best friend from high school has come down to visit with her son.  What else could we ask for?

We made it.

  1. HOORAY!!! Can't wait to see you!! So glad we are in the same time zone and state and that you guys didn't have too much trouble-I mean, the seizures sound totally awful. But at least you didn't have to ground the airplane or anything :D

    2. Hahah I know! I'm going to have to offer an incentive, except that kind of seems cheating. Whatever. I'll fight dirty if that's what it takes :D

    1. The sand in Carmel was lovely! It was cool and windy, not suntanning weather, but nice for walks.

    1. You know how you go on vacation and you have kids so it's not a vacation? This totally hasn't been like that. It's awesome.
