I'm sure much more can happen in 48 hours, but for us this weekend was packed.
On Friday, Mack had to get platelets and blood (which took 4 hours). Even though we played the whole time, it gets exhausting. We ended our night with homemade pizzas on the grill with Nanny and Papa H.
And by out, I mean out! I had lunch with my family and helped put everyone down for naps and then I was on my way!
On my way to meet Tara-my BFF from high school. She is the one who came down after Mack was last out of the hospital to help and lost someone very dear to her-her mom. Together we both headed out 2 hours from our homes to meet in the lovely Quincy IL.
Then we popped open a good bottle of wine and just sat talking, talking, and talking. Then we ran out for a bite to eat only to return back to our room to put our P.J's on and talk.
While I was away, Mark grilled with the kids and took them to the hardware store to get plants and other things around the house. He is so good alone with the kids-sometimes I think he likes it better :) haha! They love their daddy time that is for sure!
It was a night I've been dreaming about since having my third baby. One night in a hotel room, with a friend, and a bottle of wine!
I got back on Sunday just in time to see them before naps and quiet time. When everyone stirred we planted seeds and flowers and headed to the trail to run. Our plan was to have Lincoln play at Nanny and Papa H's house, but Mack jumped out of the car wanting to stay as well. This made Avery so happy! "It's me without the boys!" she said. She waits patiently as her mom and dad make their way through a 2 1/2 mile run and then gets to run with us. I think she is ready for some sports because this girl is fast!!!!!
It was a busy 48 hours, but one to remember!
