The kids and I are back from our trip to the south land! It was busy and crazy and packed full of good memories. A two week whirl wind of family, friends, and fun outings. I got to see my precious, life long friend Leah. We talked and ate McDonalds, and it was like we were 20 years old again. Except back then I think we were able to finish a sentence. But look at those four adorable interrupters! Beautiful, blue-eyed boy.Super chill baby award. I also got to spend some time with one of my college roommates, Carly. I know she’s just glad to see I made it to this stage of life despite my questionable dating choices.
Another morning of trying to finish a thought, but so fun to see our kids together and catch up on life. EBug looooooves Uncle Steven. She climbed up on that couch and told him to put his arm around her. He is so great with kids. And I love seeing him with my babies. Brother Bear is a little lovie. Such a hugger. Love it. We cherished our time with these two. Sweet brothers and awesome cousins! We were also there for the wedding of one of Steph’s precious friends. It was a beautiful event, and Lacey was such a gorgeous bride! It was a morning wedding, which was a really cool idea. Doughnuts and strawberries were the apps followed by a delicious brunch of waffles, grits, ham, fruit, biscuits. So fun. The cutest, most well behaved attendant. He is such a great baby!!! If children were named according to their personalities (which apparently we succeeded at), this little guy would be Trooper. And I would call him Troop. He is awesome. I’m framing this one. Sisters in periwinkle. Love you, Ab! We spent some days and nights at Grammy Great’s house, and it was such a treat. She had the perfect little table and chairs set up for the kids and lots of amazing, vintage toys. E and Brother had quite a time “sharing” them. I am so glad my kids got some good time with my grandmother. Here is my gorgeous friend, Emily. Yeah, that baby is hers. She just had him and already looks like a million bucks. And is he not the cutest thing!! I was so pumped to meet him, and my only regret is that I couldn’t spend 20 more hours cuddling him. Such a doll. And Em is such a great little momma. My two hoodlums were up to their usual tricks of non-gentleness. But Tru baby toughed it out. One day, y’all will all be friends, Tru. Promise. We had some really fun kiddie adventures in my hometown. Lots of great stuff to do.
Splash pads are like my jam. Water without drowning. Love it. Children’s museums are a close second. So fun. “I think there is a button up there that needs to be pushed.” Dancing king. Like for real. Good times, good times. Thanks, Rusty girl for being such a laid back, resilient dog and putting up with my wild child.
