Sunday Surf: Vacation recuperation

Welcome to the Sunday Surf, a tour of the best blogposts I've read throughout the week.

Getting silly toward the end of our trip. Mikko thought it was awesome that this highchair was on wheels and decided it was perfect for rides. We had both boys wheeling around the restaurant (not into anyone, don't worry).
I think anytime you take a vacation, you should be granted a rest period afterward, just as long as the vacation was, to recover. Who's with me?

The laundry is still getting done. I keep finding new stashes of dirty clothes around. We're attempting to get back in the swing of things.

Yesterday was the Pirates' Landing at the beach outside our door, so we all dressed like pirates and joined the throngs of landlubber wannabes. Of course, the Fourth was celebrated with fireworks and a cook-in (similar to a cookout, but with a kitchen; shut up — it's a thing) — Mikko was thrilled, as per usual.

Yesterday he also requested a trip to the "tent store," which I finally determined was perhaps Costco (because they have a couple on display) and perhaps REI. We decided on REI, and he enjoyed himself crawling into all the ones they had set up. Next thing I knew, he'd kicked off his shoes, zipped the flap closed, and curled up inside the sleeping bag. I guess he was set. When I was away in Portland, Sam and Mikko had "boy camp" and went car camping (as in, actual camping in the car, for we don't yet have a tent). Looks like a tent purchase and "family camp" are in our future. Let's just hope the recovery period after family camp isn't too brutal.

Moira keeps agitating to go camping too. We need a whole lot more supplies before that's possible. Like, more then one sleeping bag. And a tent.

Totally agree on the vacation from the vacation idea. Our vacation just ended too and the laundry pile is looming...
