A Long Awaited Journey

Excitement is building as we prepare to leave tomorrow.  The kids can sense something is happening because all this week they have been waking up at different times of the night and only falling back to sleep in our bed.  Needless to say the lack of sleep has now caused me to start getting a cold...the day before our trip...Murphy's Law strikes again.  I'm off to get some Zicam today in hopes of warding it off.  

So much to do today.  Pack, run errands, appts, etc.  Thank goodness I took the day off.  I usually don't procrastinate this much but it's hard to pack a suitcase when you have little ones that go behind you and unpack everything.  Brian on the other hand is a procrastinator so he will surely be packing at midnight tonight.  

I'm going to miss the kids like crazy.  It will be the first time I've been away from Enzo (I think...trying to remember past business trips) It will definitely be the longest amount of time I've been away from both of them.  Thankfully Brian is flying back this weekend so they will only have a few days away from him.  I hope that will ease the fact that I will be gone longer.

 So excited to meet my birth mom and her family for the first time this weekend.  Lots of excitement and emotions as I prepare for the big day!
 I'll be sure to share lots of pics when I return...and maybe a few while I'm there if I have time to get online.

Day Out with Nana

All this week the kids school/daycare is closed in preparation of school starting next week. Thankfully my parents are watching them this week. Yesterday Nana treated Addison to a movie (Disney's Planes), manicure, pedicure and ice cream!! Needless to say the kids are loving this week.

Movies in the Park

Friday evening I took Addison to "Movies in the Park." She had her 4 year old check up and shots earlier that afternoon. The movie (Escape from Planet Earth) didn't start until 8:30pm so by 9:30p she started to complain that her legs hurt and she was getting sleepy. She fell asleep at the very end of the movie but still had enough fun to talk about it all weekend. Thanks to my parents for watching Enzo so I could enjoy some 1:1 time with Addison.

Swim Progress

The 5 week swim class that we enrolled Addison and Enzo in has been eventful. We have had only 2 classes so far and the last 3 have been rained out. In the meantime we've been having them swim often and Addison is improving everytime. She dives to the bottom for the dive sticks, does flips underwater and just this weekend swam the length of the pool multiple times. The first attempt she only came up once for air. She's doing great!! Enzo is a little daredevil in the water. He attempts to jump in on his own and it sets me into a panic. He has no fear.
