We slept great in our own beds with our own pillows and bedding. Although, we woke-up at dawn because the sun shone brightly into our eyes through the huge wall of windows in our room! One of the first things we found was the Van Dyke garage door opener. (It is doing great and enjoys the breeze from the sea!) The kids were so excited to get their rip-sticks and JP’s tricycle! Our stuff feels great but also makes us homesick. For the past 5 weeks we felt like we were on vacation but now things are starting to hit us. We really miss home at this point.
