Well, sorry, folks, 'cause I didn't use it very often. As I scroll through the photos of our Dec 29-Jan 6 trip to Phoenix I realize there is a multitude of things/happenings that never reached the lens. I think caring for a toddler in a time zone two hours different than his own and dealing with nausea and weariness probably pushed the thought of picture taking a bit further out of my mind. Since trips are not able to be rewound I'll have to settle for the few that did make it back home.

In a typical day of mine two to four hours does not seem like a long period of time. In a typical day. Flying from one side of the country to the other is not a typical kind of day scenario, and that stretch of time seriously felt like some of the longest moments of my life. Taking a rambunctious two year old homebody out of his element and expecting him to sit for hours upon end next to you can be a bit draining! And my watch - - - those hands moved so slowly! I am happy to report that we had no major incidents. I did happen to glance away from the youngest for a few moments only to turn around and discover that he was sticking Toy Story stickers all over the side of the plane. My heart just about stopped until I realized they were easily removed. And as tiny as "conti-ental ayeplane" bathrooms are, there are still numerous things to amuse two year olds. :-) Believe me; I know.
Upon arrival, it seemed like there wasn't much slowing down until we arrived home again! And once again, I'd like to show more pictures. . .if I had them. :-)
Every boy loves to be unleashed on Uncle Tracy's drum set. The adults, on the other hand. . .
Hiking on South Mtn in Phoenix was a fun activity between Troy and the boys. I declined the invitation and did laundry instead. Only nausea would make me choose the latter!
A highlight of the trip for Seth was going to the US Airways Center where the Phoenix Suns play. He thought he was just going to see the outside
of the building and was thrilled to discover his dad had worked it out to get them a guided tour.
