My Boys and I (and Lucy too :)
My Mama, Me, My Daddy, Sister and Brother
Jakey and Papa
Then on Wednesday of this past week, I got a call from my friend Melody. Mel and I have been friends for a LONG time. Over the past year she got Married and found out she was expecting, and the phone call was to let me know that little Mia Rose was on her way! We decided that he Bobby would watch the kiddos here at home for the weekend, and let me have a little mini vacation. So Saturday I drove to California to meet Melody's new little girl! The drive was so long, and quiet without my boys. As weird as it sounds, I missed thier noise! Every time we take that trip, Jakob and I do a city countdown about 45 minutes from my Parent's house. When we got to that point I turned around and said "Okay Jakey, let's start the countdown".. only to see an empty back seat! Though I missed my boys, the weekend was a lot of fun. Mia is the spitting image of Mel, beautiful and such a good baby! There was also a moment where My Mom, Dad, Brother, Sister, and I were all sitting in the living room. We realized it was the first time in a LONG time that it had been just the 5 of us. No spouses, grandchildren, no one but us. It was very strange without my boys, even if it was only overnight, I missed them so much. They had fun with Bobby.. walked to the park, went swimming in their pool, ate pizza! I am happy to be back home, but the weekend was a lot of fun! I certainly can't complain about getting to spend two consecutive weekends in California! Hope you all are having a great week!!
