First Sleep Over

The last weekend of June the boys had their first ever sleep over. They went to Gamma and Papa’s cabin. I think this was hardest on mommy. They didn’t miss me one bit, or if they did they didn’t show it at all. It went really well for them and the grandparents, well as long…

Boys glad to be home

We had a great vacation, and time with family in Colorado, but the boys always love coming home. I think they feel like they have to play with everything and re-connect with toys, animals and unwind. In less than 30 minutes our house went from super clean and in order to this: Two trikes, a…

Conversations from the back seat
