What I learned on my summer vacation...

1. If mosquitoes are supposed to die 3 days after biting someone, I single-handedly wiped out at least 100 of those little effers
2. Scratching mosquito bites like your life depended on it only makes them itch more.
3. Scratched up mosquito legs are not attractive
4. I can consume a very large amount of cream of crab soup, and still have room at the end of the week for more.
5. Picking crabs is still vile and disgusting, but as long as I don't focus on the "mustard"- it's all ok
6. I have zero desire to move back to Maryland
7. Humidity sucks
8. I really miss my MD friends
9. I really miss living 10 minutes from Ikea
10. There are REALLY big crickets in MD
11. Really big crickets scare the heck out of me.
12. I have ALOT of crap at my mom's still.
13. Drew had ALOT of crap at my mom's also.
14. Dominic is scared of grass, but will eat a bug
15. Aspen has a very high pain threshold, evidenced by her ear piercing experience
16. Ryan loves to point at trees and say "Ta"
17. I must find a secret place in my house to hide my butterscotch krimpet stash
18. People will clap when a crying baby finally falls asleep on a plane.
19. You cannot sleep on the red-eye if holding an infant.
20. Humidity makes things expand - causing me to have to ship 11 boxes home....or maybe I did too much shopping :)

Amen to the big cricket part. What is with these things!? Glad you had a good time!

I know all about not sleeping with an infant on a red-eye. My wife and I flew to Japan -- a 14 hour flight -- with the triplets when they were 17 mos. old. We didn't get any sleep (or have time for anything else) until the last hour or so. The kids had all finally dozed off when the plane touched down!

It was great to see you guys! The big crickets have always been here. They are not new to the area. If you don't like them give them to Dominick, he might like them covered in chocolate. :)
