We all took a trip to the Home in Ito and all I could say is that I haven't been so out far in the country for the longest time. (How do they survive?!? hehe..) They have quite an interesting and nice house though.
Anyway to give a quick summary, we got stuck in terrible traffic on the way there but made it there before it got too late. Had a slumber party in the living room with five mattress spread out (Thanks to our hosts who prepared everything!). Chubs fell in love with a foot massage machine and had no trouble fitting right in with the other toddies. I once saw him happily chattering with a girl in the meal line. Way to go.
In between meetings we had a mini soccer game at a field in the mountains and indulged in happy juice with the other young people that night.
The next day on the way back Pudge slept the whole way through (close to 3 hours), which was a real miracle as she doesn't like cars. And when she doesn't like something she will trumpet it out in clear tones until she gets her way or everyone else goes deaf.
Got home safe and sound and am now waiting with Mama and Pudge for my wonderful husband, Dada, and Chubs to get back too.
That's about it.
