Well, the vacation that took so long to plan is over. We made it home at about 7pm on Thursday (October 4th), minus one suitcase. Apparently James' suitcase was having too much fun in Istanbul and decided to stay a bit longer. It seems to have run out of money, however, and arrived at our house last night. The girls were excited to see us, and it was great to give them hugs.
For those that are curious, the final photo count was 3100. We've taking an initial cut and reduced that number to 700, but the processing is going to take a bit. We have started uploading the photos to Flickr into a Turkey collection, so keep an eye out!
