January 2012 in England

We'd not been to the UK since November 2010 when Lux was just 3½ months old. That trip was pretty straightforward kid-wise: she slept for most of the flight over, and was sketchy enough sleep wise that timezones were somewhat academic.

This time things were different. At 18 months, as you might expect, Lux significantly more fidgety and needy in transit—and the jet lag thing was just crazy. Every day we were there, Lux was wide awake from 1am to 6am; Wendy, me and a grandparent would take shifts staying awake with her. Everyone in the house was pretty much just grazing on sleep for a week.

Fantastic time, though.

Great to see my dad again after the longest I've ever gone without seeing him:

and in turn the longest he's been without hanging out with his granddaughter:
Dave and Lux

A chance to reunite with my sister's fantastic kids: #1

and #2
and of course my sister and brother-in-law themselves:
Zoe and Brian

I saw my brother Jak (a bit):

Lux got to know her cousins a little:
Lux and Tate
and I strolled around the English countryside with my mom and Wendy and Lux:

All in all, a wonderful time with my very favorite people.
