We're Baaaack!

We left Friday to go to the family gathering whose purpose was to honor the passing of Dear Husband's grandfather. The kids did very well traveling the 6 hour train ride each way. We did get a couple of those looks. The one you get taking a baby anywhere that will put them in a prolonged situation with people unused to small children. These people almost inevitably assume that a small child can not behave. I generally feel that parents are the most to blame for unruly children. Sometimes you can't help it - there is only so much goodness a tired child can sustain and there is no chance they can nap. Most of the time it's a matter for planning. Books, snacks, coloring books and crayons, and the magic bullet - movies. The train played some and we also brought a few to play on DH's computer (which utilized harly at all). None of which satisfied the Infant, whose sole purpose in life is to see and be seen. No wailing, screaming or running the aisles; no whining, fighting, or (blessedly) motion sickness.

I'll post more later after unpacking.
