dear oliver, i’m home

Our ship returned safely to port and we have returned safely home. It was a very long day. Why does the return trip always seem to take longer? I am just so glad to be home and sleeping in my own bed tonight!

We left the ship at 7:30 this morning. We left Puerto Rico at 10:30 a.m. In New York City, our plane was delayed by nearly an hour, which wouldn’t have been so bad if we weren’t already boarded. That made for some grumps. Mama said it was a toss-up for crankers between me and Da-da. Honestly!

It was 7:00 p.m. before we had the car loaded with luggage and were on our way to the ferry. It was pushing 11:00 p.m. before we got home. Like I said, a very long day!

The very last hour of our journey was the absolute worst. I did not think I could stand another minute of travel, especially in that car seat! Mama and GiGi were stressed out because I was throwing such a royal conniption. You’ve never seen such an angry tantrum, Oliver! But Da-da said, “Henry can’t win this one.” And they knew he was right. So we powered through, as Mama says. If GiGi hadn’t insisted we stop because Mama needed to eat, I might have slept until we reached the driveway. That GiGi! But Mama is worth it.

All in all, it was a wonderful journey. Mama and Da-Da were so proud of my adventuring spirit. GiGi and Pops, too. Mama said, “We couldn’t have asked for more from Henry.” Da-da and GiGi and Pops agreed. GiGi said we were “Team Henry” this week.

I hope that the next time I travel for sun and sea that you and Sadie will be with me. I also hope you feel better soon. (I hear it’s miserable painful business, growing teeth?) Your own beach break is not far away! Sending hugs and kisses to all, especially Sadie.
