    I already posted this in NM and also Moms of Multiples, but I thought I'd post here too because you guys are my peeps. It was so much better than I expected (big sigh of relief).

    We went to a teensy island in McGregor Bay in Lake Huron, Northern Ontario. We got back last night at 2 AM. There were two 18-hour travel days (AAAUUUGH!!!!). Yesterday started at 8 AM, with a boat ride and then a car ride and then three plane rides. The island had no electricity, no phone service, and we actually didn't even have lamps in our cabin because they were too close to the bed and Ronin kept poking the mantle on the propane lamp so we couldn't light it.

    We had a wonderful time. We spent most of our time roaming around the island, looking for blueberries. Claire got really good at picking the ripe blueberries, although Ronin was a little indiscriminate and ate green ones too. We went for some canoe rides, which is REALLY difficult with two rowdy babies. I managed to cook dinner for 8 people a few different nights on an antique gas stove. The babies spent time with their great-grandparents. Nobody got sick or fell in the water (more than to knee-length, at least). We got a lot of mosquito bites. The twins LOVED it. They even did really well on the travel days, except during the last three hours of the flights both ways. Better than on our 3 1/2 hour trip to Wyoming last month. Still, it's not something I'll undertake again lightly.

    On our way back last night someone became ill on the plane and I was the only person on board with any medical background so I had to tend to the passenger for a while. I felt torn, leaving my babies but feeling like I was the only person who could help this guy who was in distress. I had them keep him on oxygen and have EMT meet the plane in San Francisco, but was glad I didn't have to divert the plane. DH was proud of me, and thought it gave us more wiggle room in case the babies were unruly.

    Except for the actual travel days, however, we kept talking about what a great experience it was and how we might like to make it a regular occurrence. On the other hand, we could have gone to Thailand faster and for less money.

    Here is some picture overload.

    Awww Lydia. I confess your twins are SO cute!

    I confess my sister made Audrianna a book with pictures from all through her first year of life, and reading it made me cry!

    Everyone loved it except Brandons Grandma... She was upset because she wasn't in it...

    Welcome back, Lydia! I'm so glad to hear that it went better than expected And how cool that you were the medical superhero on the plane! You know, it's a little freaky how much some of the people in that last picture look like you.

    Hahaha I saw your response on the post in Random. Maybe they're just superstitious? I mean, my MIL told me I can't hammer or sew while pregnant, and my mom told me that I can't let cords/strings get tangled near me... all superstitions, of course.

    This is the second time in my life I've had to do that. One time, I was stuck in the bathroom of a plane with a guy on a toilet who was really really ill for about three hours, with a doctor, a lot of blood, and a couple of oxygen tanks. We almost turned the plane around. We fill out all these forms at the end with our names, addresses, license numbers, and everything that we do, etc. and frankly I was a little surprised that I never heard anything afterward from the airline, not even a little thank-you letter. Because it is very expensive to turn a plane around, and we salvaged the patient AND the flight for them.

    I was worried that this situation would end up taking up a lot of my time too, but luckily it didn't. For my sake, the babies' sake, and most of all for the patient's sake.

    And yes in the picture, there are a lot of similarities between us, aren't there? I look most like my aunt, I think, always have. We have a picture of us together where we look almost like twins. I assume I look least like my grandfather.

    I know... How does he not like Harper?! lol... oh well... He told me and my BFF to make a list of 8 first names, and 8 middle names and he will choose from our list.. but he gets to mix and match...

    Yay for girls! I wouldn't go for Harper, but only because it is the last name of the Canadian Prime Minister right now and he drives me totally bonkers. I can't STAND him! Stupid jerk, now he has also ruined a perfectly cute girl name.
