We came back from Mexico on Saturday. We decided to leave Saturday instead of Sunday due to the timing of the flights. Every flight got us in between 8 and 10 pm. That was our main reason for flying home on Saturday. Also, we wanted a day to recover from vacation. You know, to do laundry (we managed 8 loads yesterday), grocery shop, give Walter a bath, settle the girls back into somewhat of a routine again and prep for the week ahead. I am so glad that we did that because it was much needed.
We had a partial day in Puerto Vallarta on Saturday which would have been great if I had not woken up with the worst stomach ache ever. It felt like knives cutting my insides up. Awful. I tried to throw up, nope. I had some alka seltzer and that seemed to help, but only temporarily.
My in-laws went out and grabbed us some breakfast to eat in the condo while we got ready and got everything packed up. We ate breakfast and then hung out until it was time to go. Rory went down to the little market to grab some items for the flight home, but other than that, we just enjoyed the rest of our time that we had left.
We took some photos right before we left to go to the airport. We said our goodbyes and took off to the airport. It took awhile to get through the check-in process plus security, but we made good time and were able to sit for a bit before getting on the plane.
We decided to put one adult and two children in one row and the other adult across from them. Guess who got to sit next to the girls? Rory. Avery had a big attachment to Rory the entire trip, so she didn't want to sit with me. Other than a few time she just wanted to sit on my lap for a bit. This was better for me as I was feeling awful. I did finish Big Little Lies (finally) and it was really good. I can't wait to watch the tv show now.
I did get sick once on the plane and it made me feel so much better. Thank goodness for barf bags. And making it to the bathroom before I threw up.
We landed in Oakland and had a 4 hour layover, but it was about 3 hours after we got through Customs and security.
We pushed the girls around in their strollers, grabbed some food and sat at an empty gate watching the NCAA tournament. I was finally able to eat something and have it stick.
Our flight into Reno was quick and easy. The girls slept the whole way.
We got home, changed the girls, gave them a quick wipe down and put them to bed. Then we unpacked, showered and watched Modern Family before heading to bed.
Sunday morning we headed to breakfast since we didn't have much in the house. Once we were home, the girls and I did laundry and played while Rory headed out to an appointment. The girls started falling asleep on me at 11:15 so I put them to bed for a nap. While they napped, I caught up on Grey's Anatomy and folded a lot of laundry.
Rory came home with coffee in hand and I enjoyed that while finishing Grey's and then I headed out to the grocery store. Once I was back from the store, we unloaded everything and went on a walk.
After our walk, I had to run back out to the pet store to get Walter more shampoo and some treats. We gave Walter a bath which was much needed. Does anyone else bathe their dogs after they were boarded?
We did more laundry, more cleaning, more playing and then made dinner for the girls. Once they were done and the food was settled, we gave the girls their baths and then I started on dinner for Rory and I. I made stuffed bell pepper which were done right after the girls went down for the night. We spent the rest of the night relaxing, watching The Americans and doing more laundry before calling it a night.
Avery loves doing yoga poses
How was your weekend?
