We had a great trip. I am still recovering. We made memories with our children that I will cherish forever. We were overwhelmingly blessed by the hospitality of Drake's cousin and her family. Allowing us to invade their home with our three children for three nights was INCREDIBLY generous of them. Had my mom not been with us I may have returned home with no hair (from pulling it out) and my finger nails bitten down to the quick. She was a tremendous help. We are blessed to have her, in turn I pray she was blessed by the time with her grandchildren and the breathtaking views of the Pacific Northwest.
I would love to share some pictures with you (I got some great ones) but my server is having trouble uploading the photos. I will try again soon. I hate to leave you empty handed so here's a few confessions.
1. Drake and I have cast aside all the shows we usually watch for The Voice and yes I have a crush on Adam Levine.
2. We had a dead lawn for the first three years we lived in our house. We now have the greenest lawn on the street and every time I drive up I experience not only a surge of pride about it, but also a little judgement toward all the other neighbors. I don't feel guilty because you know they judged us for three years.
3. This week I purchased the milk chocolate peanut butter cups from Trader Joe's. According to the nutrition facts there are 13 servings in the container. Between two people the container was polished off within a couple of hours. For the record I'm pretty sure I ate about 10 of the servings.
4. Remember that long list of things you said you would never do before you became a parent? Yeah, my three year old still drinks a bottle once a day. I've had to eat my words for sanity sake.
I can barely keep my eyes open, off to bed for me. Have a fantastic Friday, would love to hear some of you juicy tidbits if you're up for sharing...
