Goodbye Hanoi

We’ll be leaving the hotel at about 8:00–that’s 2.5 hours from now. Mom, how bout I call you when we land? 🙂

We’re happy to be coming home. Can’t wait to see the kitties–McHenry and Sabine. I hope Bao likes them. G says he doesn’t really miss them at all. No surprises there.

So Hanoi. Interesting place. Will we come back? Probably not. Too crowded. Too fumey. Too eh. I would love to visit Saigon one day, but odds are we won’t. You’ll never believe it, but two kids is like twice as much work as one. !  (Glenn, that was for you).

Scratch is counting his dong right now. Andrea, (and Glenn!) mind out of the gutter, please. We have way more than we need and are trying to spend it. We’ll be having a quick dinner downstairs so maybe we can spend some there. I had an Aussie Pie yesterday. Can you believe it? Aussie Pie.Here in Vietnam. Pretty cool.

I hope this two kid thing works out for us. It’s harder than I thought–looking after two young boys. At least the new one knows how to dress himself. And doesn’t throw fits. And doesn’t hate vegetables. Yet.

On that  note, I’ll sign off…with a picture that sums up just about everything. And this one, Clan, is for you 🙂

    Can’t wait to see y’all back at CCC!!! So glad to read your blog and know you’re almost home!!! And hey – the traffic today is GREAT. LL’s school was delayed two hours due to dusting… but I didn’t know that… so made two round trips to Ellicott City from AJ before 10:30am. NO TRAFFIC ON 95 OR 32!!!! How cool is that?? 🙂

    I had fun getting caught up on your blog! The pics are awesome and it sounds like you have had such fun. I would love to take a trip like that some day. Of course, the best part for you has been your new little guy. Good luck with all of the “new” things coming your way in the future!
