Back to Reality

So our vacation is officially over. Steve went back to work yesterday and was on call overnight. We had such a good time during his time off. After we got home from North Carolina, Steve's brother John and his wife and baby came to visit.

Little Spencer is only a few weeks older than Lindsay.

He is a fun little guy and is the spitting image of his father:

We had fun hanging out with John and Kori and Spencer. Rachel and Jesse also played with us when they were available. We enjoyed some awesome barbecue, played some pretty competitive games of cards, saw some of the sights and sounds of our fair city, and enjoyed the paddle boats at a local lake.

It is amazing to me how happy the girls are when Steve is around:

Sometimes I can't decide if vacations are good for me. I think that they ruin day-to-day life for a while. Even though I can't wait for our next vacation, I dread it a little too. I've heard of post-partum depression, but is there such a thing as post-vacation depression?

Hey Jamie - Your girls are so cute. I'm with you on the post vacation depression. Maybe that is why Aaron hasn't taken me on vacation this year yet. hehe
ps I didn't see the email address?

I'm definitely with you on the post-vacation depresssion. My house has been a mess, with the dishes piling up since James went back to work (and it's not like he's the one to do the dishes either!) I'm hoping to come out of this soon. Maybe we can pull each other through!

I am certain that there is post-vacation depression... On a somewhat unrelated note - do you know if there is such a thing as post-Potter depression? I'm pretty sure I had it when I finished the last Harry Potter book for a day or two... :)
