We made it back from our big trip yesterday. After spending almost two weeks in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, it’s good to be home. We haven’t taken a trip that long since before our daughter was born, and we’ve certainly never taken such a big trip without racking up credit card debt, so score one for the Eyes on the Dollar family! There was so much to see and do, and I’m sure you’ll get sick of hearing about it, but it’s my blog and I can show all the pictures I want. I’m hoping to get back to my regular online routine, but we’ll have lots to do before school starts in a few weeks. We’ll see. Thanks for all those who checked in over the past couple of weeks.
