Reality Sets In

After a night of our kids falling instantly asleep (after midnight) and staying asleep until almost noon, we were a bit surprised at their ability to stay up until after one last night, closer to two for Jori, and Tyson was still up before 8! Jori did sleep until closer to 10 after a night of tossing and turning on a mattress on our bedroom floor. The whole business of sleeping together was great until one of the kids woke up around 11:30 and then for the next two hours they managed to keep each other awake. Needless to say, it was not a most enjoyable evening for mom and dad.
Today neither Tyson or Jori took a nap. They had fun playing and watching Darin and Jason fix the car. We had another late night, going out to dinner at 7 and just getting home a little before 10. Tyson is sound asleep and Jori is almost there. Hopefully they both stay asleep tonight and sleep in a bit tomorrow. I figure they have to catch up on sleep at some point.
We had a relaxing day. I unpacked all of our things and put them away in closets and drawers. We went grocery shopping and actually have stuff to make a few meals. Lia, who just left SA a few weeks ago, left lots of food stuff too. Tomorrow we are going to make the famous pancakes. We'll see how they turn out. Our stove is very slow to heat up and even when it is on high the temperature is still lacking.
We had a great dinner tonight at Baobob, which is our favorite restaurant out here. I am already looking forward to eating my left over steak sometime tomorrow. So far the only meals we have made at home have been macaroni and macaroni.
Time to sign off. The battery is running low and we can't find an adapter to plug in the power cord. More later.

Yum the Baobob. Have a pina colada and cheesy garlic roll for me.
