Vacation By The Numbers

7,400: Miles traveled, round trip, to Maui

16: Number of chains on our paper chain countdown timer for the inbound flight to Maui (one paper chain for every 1/2 hour of the flight--to help Reese grasp how long the flight lasts)


8: Number of nights away from home












60: Dollars wasted at the Maui Ocean Center, as determined by Jeff & Reese. Mommy loved it.


0: Total number of hours Mommy slept on the overnight flight home


3: Number of family members who determined dinner served on the flight was making us ill


1.2: Number of seconds it took Mommy to grab a barf bag before Reese lost his dinner


0: Number of barf drops that went outside the bag!


139: Number of pages Mommy read in her book over night, squinting in the dark so as not to turn on the overhead light & wake sleeping Reese & Daddy. This book is neither about sex or being good in bed. It's a great chick lit book...you should read it!


7: Number of hours Reese & Mommy slept--in the daytime--after arriving home this morning earlier than we usually even wake up


80: Average temperature in Maui while we were there....ahhhhhh!


3.89: Cost of one gallon of regular gas in Maui


9: Cost of 1 pint room service Hagen Daaz chocolate ice cream. Spendy--but so freakin' delicious


1 year: Amount of time before I can even think about another overnight flight :)


I'll be putting together a movie with all our fun once I feel like I can function again...But we're back & I had to check in!
