Jiggity Jig

We're home again albeit with sickness. Henry has a gastro virus so he has been vomiting non-stop for 3 days now. It seems that the last few vacations we have come home with illnesses!

There's plenty to tell you about our trip. And even more photos and videos - we almost filled the memory card, only space for 39 more photos.

So stay tuned. Once the epidemic leaves our house I'll get to blogging.
