because the next time we are at a beach

14 06 2009

we will be in bathing suits.

a week from tomorrow, we are going to toss the lot of them in a taxi and make our way to the airport for the start of what i think may be the best 5 weeks we have had in a long, long, long time.

i left the states almost exactly 15 months ago and i can still taste the salty tears i cried as i put my hands on my belly willing the unborn twins to kick as the plane took off. i needed something. some sign that we were going to be alright. those moments are still so fresh and a bit of that fear is still unresolved, but i think the cure is coming. every day is its own reward and my life over the last 450 odd days has been amazing and wonderful… but with all the new, i crave some of the old. i need to go back and see my friends. i need to confirm what i feel in my heart that even over the miles and years, we are connected by something that can’t be destroyed by that distance and time.

that we truly are alright.

from our winter day on the beach:

So uber sweet πŸ™‚ It’s so funny to see them SO rugged up by the beach πŸ™‚ About your trip… once you get here and realise how much you miss the little things back in Oz, you’ll be very ready to head back home πŸ™‚

yippee!!! when are you going to be where in the states?

Have fun on your trip! Good luck traveling with 3 kids! I’ve barely been on airplanes myself, let alone with young kids. We are leaving on Tuesday, for a short jaunt to St. Louis, Missouri and will be gone and back, before you come to the states. I’m excited, too. We live in Wisconsin, where it’s only barely felt like summer. St. Louis will be about 90 on Wednesday, when we want to do sight-seeing. That will be different, too.

I’m going to say a very long prayer and have a very stiff drink for you as you board that plane….three kids on a cross-world trip….maybe I’ll have two drinks for you. πŸ™‚

Yay Clover!!! Smiley girl!! So glad she’s feeling better again!

Have a great trip! The states are waiting for you.

Those pictures are TOO cute! I love the way the twins are playing in that middle one, and their smiles are absolutely precious in the third one. Gemma’s smile is absolutely adorable in the first one. πŸ™‚

I know what you mean about wanting to go back to something familiar. I am from Va and moved out to Ca about 3 years ago and every time I go back to Va it just feels like home. I love it.
