Savannah Guthrie is back for Toddler Olympics gold!
After Guthrie, 49, reported on the Tokyo Olympics for the Today show after two weeks in Japan, she documented her return to New York City on Instagram on Saturday. "Goodbye Tokyo -> hello NYC! I am so happy to be home, ”she wrote.
Buddy and co-host Jenna Bush Hager commented sweetly, “So happy that you're home too. Can't wait to give you a hug !! (Maybe not as much as [two] small children!) "
Guthrie's husband Michael Feldman then shared an adorable photo of the mother playing in a playground with her two children, daughter Vale, 6½, and son Charles "Charley" Max.

Today's co-hosts stationed in Japan for the global sporting event - Guthrie, Hoda Kotb, and Craig Melvin - recently told PEOPLE that they stayed in touch with loved ones back home while they were in Tokyo and took souvenir requests with them.
Kotb, who has daughters Hope Catherine, 2 and Haley Joy, 4 with her fiancé Joel Schiffman, said her older child requested biscuits, and Guthrie hooked it up: “I got so many biscuits [from a nearby supermarket ], "She explained.

Guthrie, meanwhile, got Vale "lots of glitzy" things, but told PEOPLE and her co-anchors that they still needed a souvenir for Charley and Feldman. Commenting on the way her children cheered the athletes from home, Guthrie said, “Our children are so excited. My kids wear their USA jerseys, they cheer on the teams. They're really excited to have us here - they can't believe I'm at the Olympics. "
“We make sure that the time change works. I always tell them: 'I'll send you my sun' and 'Catch the moon. He's coming up to you ‘” she added to coordinate calls with the time zone differences.

"Much of the working day in Savannah is when the kids are still asleep," he said at the time. "And that's good on the one hand, but then, with her make-up finished, she has to roll into mom mode while I leave for the conference call."
"So she's on when she wakes up at 4 a.m. until the kids go to bed at night," added Feldman. "I'm impressed with her ability to create structure. I'm trying to find an acceptable time for a cocktail and she says, 'Okay, art and craft lesson!' "
