Been a while and lots has been happening. I've been traveling for work again (finally done), and the family has been enjoying summer vacation. First, neice and nephew were down to visit. It is simply amazing to me how the kids can go for months at a time and not miss a beat. Then we shipped ours back home to visit relatives. Everyone seems to be having a good time. Worst seems to be the youngest falling out of a tree. Picked up some scratches, but all is well.

And of course, while the kids are away, the parents will play. The wife and I decided to postpone our anniversary celebration (it's been 10 years already) until the kids were away and take a short trip. We ended up picking Hilton Head, because it was close (about a 5 hour drive) and near the water. Other than poor customer service from majority of the hotel staff, we had a great trip. Excellent food, and the best was the ability to be spontaneous again (even if it was to spontaneously take a nap - we are getting sooo old). All in all, good time, great food and even better company (from my view at least). I do miss the kids however.

So, the wife left Thursday to retrieve the kids, leaving me on my own for 5 days. Problem is, after the first day, I've been as lost as the dog. Getting to the point where I think my neighbors are avoiding me. How do stay at home folks do it?

Anyway, that pretty much catches you up on us. Not as interesting as usual perhaps, but definitely more relaxed. More stories soon - once the kids get home.
