« Aunty Camp: less fun with teenagers' cell phones | Main

Glad your vacation went well! Ours ended last night when we arrived home, but we have one more short trip to Canada to handle.

Sorry to hear about aunty camp. It's a pain, this thing of teens and phone and kids in general and devices (iPads and pods). During our 1 week family vacation with 16 people, 8 of which were kids from 15-3, several times a day (early morning, after lunch) ALL 8 KIDS would be crowded around phones or devices watching videos or playing games... yeah... Good thing we spent several hours at the beach each day and the kids also played for hours at the nice small pool our rental house had. It's a sad "brave new world" as far as technology is concerned.
