I'm Maya B., and I approve this message.
We're home! Yup, it's back to the daily grind in St. Louis. We had a great time in Orlando, but it was time to go. Speaking of time, yesterday was... well... less than productive. Kevin had his presentation in the morning, and then we checked out of the hotel at noon, leaving us a whopping 8 hours and 40 minutes until our flight. Ugh. First, we had lunch at Planet Hollywood in Pleasure Island. We realized it was the first time we've ever gone out, just the 3 of us, to a restaurant where we've gotten served by a waitress. It was actually really nice, and Maya was such a good girl. She ate peas and brown rice. After lunch, we walked around a bit, trying to decide if we should try to take Maya to a movie, in the hopes that she's sleep through it. It didn't work out though, and we ended up at "The Florida Mall," which is a ritzy mall in what seemed like a not-so-nice-area. We walk around for a while, rested a little, and then realized we might as well go to the airport and hang out. We ended up watching "The Office" (British version - I highly recommend it) on Kev's laptop, and having a leisurely dinner. Maya slept through most of the flight, the cab ride home, and even through her transfer into the crib. Could I ask for much more?
"Back to the old high chair!"
"Wait - these aren't real people..."
"This guy isn't real either!"
"I guess we won't be going to the pool until next summer..."
"This was the best vacation ever!!!"
