Three Things Thursday ...

Back to Reality - We arrived home last night from an eight day trip to Walt Disney World. And as much as I was happy to come home, I was kind of sad too. We had an absolute blast and really connected as a family.

It was so awesome just to be together in our own little bubble. We felt so far removed from what was going on in our everyday life. In fact, both J and I said that it felt like we were gone much longer than eight days. Even before we got home, I felt as if the world was racing forward while we managed to hit the pause button. It was nice. And despite their sheer loudness and crazy behavior, I felt like I spent the last week really appreciating my three little monsters and everything they bring to my life.


Now, will I feel the same way once we get back on schedule? Yeah, not sure about that one, but for now I am all rainbows and unicorns about them.

Goofy - My 6'7" linebacker of a husband wore this hat throughout our vacation. I love that he doesn't take himself too seriously ...


Reunions - While we were in Orlando, I noticed (on Facebook) that my friend (and shot-put relay partner) from high school was also there visiting. And since the last time I saw her I only had one child, it was obvious that we needed to get together.

On Monday, we met for dinner and it couldn't have gone any better.

a bunch of crazies ...
And although we may have scared her out of ever having kids of her own, the girls just loved her and we picked up right where we left off. It made a great trip even better.
