I'm back. The trip went incredibly well. No tantrums, no 'are we there yet', no unnecessary tears or disappointments on kids front. Eight hours in the car - and nothing major. 
The main reason for the reunion was the passing of my husband's grandfather  - who has managed to make it to 104! One hundred and four! Seriously. 
We've gathered to celebrate his life and (not that I've been to many, but...) it was a perfect memorial service. Anais set through it all like a real trouper (even though at barely 3 y. o. she had no clue what's going on).
Oh... and we also spent a day in Marineland. That was a real treat! I did all the kiddie rides.... since I'm a big scardie cat. Girls had a blast on the mini roller-coaster. I wish I wasn't so busy having fun... and took some pictures.
