We managed to pack a lot in to our 3 days away. But the highlight?
Meeting up with Mery and Co. at the park. We had horrible weather for most of the trip. Our time at the park was the only little break in the rain. Mery hooked us up with some sunshine. Just perfect.
Hobbs was missing out on all the action- just snoozing away in the stroller. I had to peek at him like 5000 times! I couldn't help myself. Yum yum.
(I took my new camera out of the box- and yes, I'm keeping it :)
The city was fun...we did a little shopping, ate some good food (I had a fig and gorgonzola pizza!!!!), and throughouly enjoyed having someone else make our beds each day! But, navigating an unfamiliar city with 4 kids in tow requires an imense amount of energy.
This country mouse was glad to be headed in the direction towards home.
I didn't stay there long though! There was an impromptu night out with some girls- this time in my neck of the woods.
We also celebrated birthday #80 for Carl's grandma. His family sure knows how to throw a party. Pictures with Elvis coming soon!!
What a whirlwind. It's all a bit of a blur. My cheeks are sore from so much smiling.
Carl had to go back for a few days. I like waking up very early when he's gone. (Like "east coast time" early.) After a busy few days it's nice to have a little time to myself. A girl has to take care of herself that way you know? I think I'm just going to spend the day in my pjs and bake some banana bread or something. I won't put nuts in it. I know you don't like them.
