This weekend I was pampered at my in-laws’ house. They took care of Max and Mini and I slept 8 hours straight last night! I got up to eat a delicious breakfast of pancakes, eggs, and bacon. A little later I yawned and said I was tired and Nana suggested I take a nap. Really? Okay.
I went to bed and ended up sleeping for three more HOURS. I woke up at 1:15 p.m. just in time for lunch. I’m telling you, I was feelin’ the love.
I pretty much think I have the best in-laws in the world.
We were so excited to see Pops & Nana and Aunt Jen and my first experience traveling alone with the kids (!!) went pretty well. It only took me three hours to get out of the house yesterday morning. Sheesh. I was majorly Disorganized (with a capital D) and almost forgot the essentials like formula and diapers.
But like every other day in life, I had a good laugh during the chaos. I asked Max to pack his own backpack for the trip with, you know, toys and stuff. Well. Do you know what he chose to put in it?
That’s right. A loaf of bread. You never know when some extra fiber is going to be necessary.
That boy. He makes me laugh so much!
Anyway – want to see some pictures from this weekend?
Nana was going crazy waiting for us to arrive and even her friends were calling for updates on our progress. I called her at 9:30 and said I’d be leaving soon and then called at 12:30 to tell her we were on our way. We were off like a herd of turtles. Or is it turd of hurtles? Either one.
You can see Max in the background already busy playing with his new Sock Monkey that Nana got for him. He’s come to find out that Big Brother presents are one of the best things about having a baby sister in the family!
Here is Aunt Jen holding Mini for the first time. I think it’s safe to say that it was love at first sight!
Pops and Mini having a little chat.
Mini, you’re going to love coming here to visit! And when you’re old enough, I’ll get you your own backpack to put anything you want inside for the trip, just like your big brother.
