TubaDad is home, I repeat TubaDad is home! (cue joyous music) The girls have been cute and funny and sweet and all that, but after a week alone with them I am just cooked. They, on the other hand, are more energetic than ever. Yeah, yeah, it's a real shocker, huh? TubaDad had a successful business trip, which was nice, but to be honest what his three girls really wanted to know was what kind of souvenirs he brought home! And boy oh boy he didn't disappoint. He picked out these cool Barcelona t-shirts and fab little dresses for the girls (the dresses are from a Barcelona designer called Desigual which I now lovelovelove), plus an entire shopping bag of international chocolate for me (thank the lord). You know, though, that even with super cute clothes and a whole passel of chocolates flying out of the suitcases, the only souvenirs that Ro and Ree went hog wild over were the little bags of socks and toiletries that the airline provided. Figures. We took the feisty girls to the park today to try and burn off some extra energy, but a couple hours of rigorous climbing and spinning don't seem to have slowed them down at all. Oh well, at least they had fun, even if TubaDad and I didn't quite have the relaxing time on the park bench that we were hoping for. This video shows a few clips of the girls in action -- my favorite part is at the very end where Ree lifts Ro above her head and also where the two of them perform death-defying leaps into the air. (No toddlers or parents were harmed in the making of this video.) We're heading to the Monterey Aquarium tomorrow, to visit Ro's favorite octopus, so if anyone's planning to be there, give a yell.
