As the girls get older, it is so much less work to go away. In fact, this time we crossed a major milestone - we left the playpen at home!! This doesn't seem like a big deal to some, but the sight of seeing my two little sweethearts curled up in the same bed, s.o.u.n.d. a.s.l.e.e.p. felt like a major accomplishment indeed (and they were so darned cute too!!).
Two little jellybeans, who lovingly let me sleep all night long too!!
TWO NIGHTS IN A ROW.
It's a m.i.r.a.c.l.e.!!!
Highlights :) ...
- We enjoyed our first warmer-weather picnic lunch at a playground.
- I got to dangle my legs in the hot tub while Little M took Daddy from one cold pool to the next ;) - Sweet K isn't so keen on chilly water, so she was my warm-water buddy :)
- We found bedding for the bunk beds we've ordered. I asked for Little M's help in selecting some wall decorations. We finally settled (because momma is momma, and that's a good enough reason!!!) for some delightful ladybugs and butterflies, rather than the Spiderman wall-clings that she insisted she just LOVED!!- But more than all this, we just really enjoyed spending time together. Shopping isn't as ... easy :) ... and meal times aren't as ... relaxing ... but there are more than enough giggles to go around :).
And now, it is Monday, and back to our regular, normal, everyday, very-lovely life :)!!
