But check out these photos Elise got of me with the kids. I saw these little wooden toys in Buzios that were just like the ones we had as kids, almost 25 years ago. (Am I that old??) I flew home to California to surprise my mom for Mother's Day, and boy, surprise her did I! I've never seen her so shocked. The story, more photos, and updates later. For now I'm catching up on my sleep after that 36 hour cross country trip.
