With the hubster still on vacation, online time isn’t exactly plentiful yet. So until Monday when life goes back to semi-normal in the Ardito household, enjoy this brief slice of vacation pics with comments.

In the immortal words of The Scarlet Pimpernel: “More to come, more to come. I said, ‘Brief,’ not ifinitessimal.”
