The New Pool

The kids have been doing great but they are getting a little sick of the same 3 toys and same 10 books so it was time for something new and fun. Dad went out shopping and came home with the only pool he could find. Again, not necessarily my first choice but easily forgotten by seeing the amount of fun it provided.

Poor Dylan

So again, our rooms all look so sad right now but I just had to post this photo of Dylan's sleeping situation. It's great that they lend us something while we wait for our crib but I have to say this "crib" has been a little scary. It's really more of a bassinet, when Dylan stands up his waist is about at the top of the rail, hence the mattress on the ground. Thankfully he hasn't launched himself out yet. Oh and I try to not even think about how the slats are installed underneath the mattress.

Note: One of my favorite things Ava has said this week, "Mommy, does chicken come from chickens"

Our Room

The rooms look a bit empty and random right now since we still only have what we brought with us on the plane. I'm happy that they put curtains up for us yesterday but the colors are not necessarily what we would pick, although Dylan did get a decent blue and Ava is happy with her dark red.

Perfect Spot for the Time Out Chair (although the chair is a little too cushy)

Ups and Downs

I think all in all the trip over was better than I expected but it started off pretty rocky. After super shuttling it to the airport we schlepped into the airport check in line with 2 car seats, a stroller, 4 backpacks and 6 suitcases just to be told that we only have two seats on the flight. If there was ever a time that I was going to murder someone it would have been in that moment. The way they looked at us like there was nothing in the world they could do for us was beyond infuriating. I non-verbally communicated to Sam that he better figure something out because there was no F ing way I was doing that all again another day. An hour and 45 minutes later we got our four boarding passes and walked straight onto the plane. The kids were up for a few hours but then they did fall asleep for a short nap although it was nighttime. Ava had a total meltdown when she woke up an hour later. But that was really the worst of our first flight. During our 4 hour lay over in Paris I realized I left my iTouch on the plane so of course I was annoyed by that. Paris to Rabat was easy, we were upgraded and had about 12 rows between us and another family, Ava slept the whole way, and Dylan half way. Sleeping would have been a lot easy for the kids if you could put the arm rests up, so Ava slept in a ball and Dylan slept in my arms. Of course Sam and I got no sleep, couldn't think straight and were falling asleep mid sentence, but somehow we all got to our expansive house and all slept through our first night in Rabat.
