For the holiday weekend, we took a weekend trip to Southern Illinois, to visit Chris’s relatives.
Chris’s dad, step-mom, and little sister came up as well, and it has been great to see them, spend time with family, and even more so, to play with all the new babies that have been born through out the year!
I’m getting really sad that we have to go back to Iowa tomorrow…we only have about 9 months left, but they seem to be passing so slowly!
hmmmm, so what have we been doing here, besides spending time with the family and squeezing cute little chubby babies?
-playing at the fair!
– attempting to get Isabela to play in the swimming pool
-taking nice, leisurely walk and lots of playing outside with tiny Isa
-having a family “photo shoot”, which as you can imagine was chaotic, loud, and super unorganized.
-dealing with a little family drama, which always seems to happen when we all get together.
-relaxing, relaxing, relaxing!
-Sunday church service in the church Chris grew up in.
-cuddles with the hubs
-watching Isa play with her cousins ( FUN!)
That pretty much about sums it up! It’s so fun to see Isabela interacting with her tiny cousins, and to see her personality emerge. I love it, and I love seeing my tiny girl socializing so well!
Tomorrow, we leave early in the am. boo. I’m not very excited to go back and jump right back into Chris’s crazy work schedule/life. The life of a housewife/stay at home mom can be very lonely, indeed, and with the start of the school year , Chris begans a very busy schedule with super long hours. ick.
9 more months…..who’s counting down with me?
