Today is the final day to be in fresh air and beautiful scenery.....tomorrow I fly back to the dust and harmattan of Lagos. My dad and I took a bike ride today...our usual route through the vineyards nearby and of course the destination was....a winery!!!:)
The kids have had such a wonderful time with their grandparents here in California. Playing at the park and riding bikes have been some of their favorite things to do.:)
Jeremy has opened his own art museum in my parents' kitchen.:)
The kids had fun riding bikes around the cul-de-sac on smooth ground.....something that is very hard to come by in Lagos.:)
Here is what my parents living room looked like last night as I was packing the rest of our loot. Every bag I have is packed almost to the limit!
Here is my "new find". A good friend who lives in Lagos who has four boys(yes, that's right four boys...ages 6, 5 and a set of three year old twins) suggested the "Ride on Carry On" to me. It is a seat which actually attaches to a carry on. Believe it or not I have been traveling back and forth from Lagos for a year and a half without a stroller to get through the airports ( with the exception of last Christmas)...I have been carrying Elizabeth in my arms and my other carry ons when her legs get too tired( which is all the time!). Guy and I decided not to bring a stroller anywhere when we travel because when we get back to Lagos it takes three hours for it to come out on oversize baggage!!!! I am not exaggerating. The Lagos airport has to be one of the dirtiest places to be ever...so we would rather get our bags ( which take a while anyway)_and go. I was so excited when my friend told me about this.....I hope it works...I'll let you know when I get to the other side of the ocean. So, this will be my last post until I make it to the other side!!! Talk to you later!:)
