A Scene From the Lives of Overtired Kids (Vancouver Trip, Day 3)

Cascadia Hotel, room #807, 5:36 PM:

Mia is holed up in a corner of the hotel room, snarling like a wild animal at anyone who comes near her, talks to her, looks at her, or even thinks about coming near her, talking to her, or looking her.

Sam is on the other side of the room humping a towel.

Nate is a human barnacle.

I think it's about time to go home.

So, I have decided that someday I need to meet you. I think you are hilarious. I love it that my kids are not the only ones that go crazy after three days being on a trip.

As for Mark's awesome trampoline skills...he was quite a bit older than me and I remember he has had tramoline skills forever. I used to think he was the coolest person in the whole world because he could do so many cool tricks on the trampoline. You let him know that I have many fond memories of watching him and Jake and Shem playing add on.

Thanks for making me laugh-sidenote: I am glad I am not the only one who dreams of running in the Amazing Race.

Hope the trip gets better.

Way to stick it out multiple days! We did a day trip to Orcas Island on Saturday, and on the way there I was thinking, man, it's too bad we aren't going to stay overnight. But then reality hit, nap time was missed, and we lasted less than two hours at our actual destination and ended up taking an even earlier ferry home than we had planned -- we couldn't get everyone home and in bed soon enough.
P.S. Hi to Carrie Beckstead -- good times in Seattle 1st.

What happened to Mia to make her be like that!? Was she tried?
