Behind the Scenes: Jet Lag? Who Has Jet Lag?

1077097_10201759836703452_1417387857_oOur recent vacation carried us across three time zones. While it was still the middle of the night on the West coast, the boys had “slept in” according to their body clocks. Ugh. I plied them with fun apps on the Kindle and more than enough Disney Jr on television…my options for somewhat quiet activities were running out.

Thankfully Grandma and Papa came to the rescue and uncovered the hot tub after breakfast. While I clutched my coffee cup close and moaned about my exhaustion, they rocked out to some tunes from the Cars soundtrack and restyled one another’s hair.

Jet lag? Who has jet lag?

You can always count on little boys to bounce back quickly from the fatigue of a long trip. Even though I wanted to be sleeping, I couldn’t help but laugh at their antics.

How about you? Snapped a photo recently with a back story you’d like to share? 

Crystal Stine hosts a fun link up every Tuesday called Behind the Scenes: ” The sneak peek behind the scenes, a look past the edges of the photo to the real life behind it.”

    Hi Heidi. I’m visiting from Crystal’s link up. Your post makes me think of my sister Heidi (good name!) and makes me thankful for trips that traverse time zones and for grandparents who help cover while we drop! Your boys look like a handful of wild and crazy fun!


    • Heidi:

      Thanks, Rebekah. Yes, much to be thankful for.


  2. Lindsay@littlehousebigworld:

    Heidi, I’ve never done that kind of traveling with my kids, but I’m sure it is hard to bounce back especially when the little ones don’t miss a beat. Glad you could enjoy those moments anyhow!
