Made it safe, sound and more or less sane

I'm falling down exhausted after the neverending travel day yesterday (23 straight hours daylight flights so no one slept - and our dvd player croaked just 90 seconds after I put it on!) and another long day today, but we're here and happy now. We took the kids to play miniature golf for the first time this morning (Itai's request) and then went to the beach for a bit in the afternoon but the weather crapped out on us (rain in the summer - how bizarre! Not to mention inconvenient...) so we came home and hit the hot tub instead. Tough life, isn't it...

No photos or videos to share yet, but there will be plenty soon.

I'm off to bed now. More later. Goodnight all.

My hell, the DVD player crapped out first thing? On an intercontinental flight? Did the flight attendants take pity on you and sneak you some wine? ;) Glad you got there safely!

Glad you survived the trip. Hope the jet lag is very shortlived and you continue to enjoy that hot tub.

Glad to hear you made to your blog! Sorry about the rain. If you don't like the weather in New England, wait a minute.

Oh 23 hours of travel with 2 small kids does NOT sound like fun! Especially with a crapped out DVD player. Glad you made it though. Sounds like the trip is off to a lovely start. Can't wait to hear more!

I HATE those endless eternal days of intercontinental travel - especially with a baby! Hope you're recuperating well . . .
