Good Day

I love being at home with my family! We had a rough trip down; neither of the boys slept so when we got to SA they were beyond exhausted. Luckily we got here at 4:30 in the afternoon (we normally leave our house around 6 pm and get here around 1 am-yuck!) which was a very nice surprise. The boys were soooo excited to see Mimi and Peepaw (my parents). And we had a nice dinner together (buffalo meat thanks to Jordana's boyfriend's family, it was quite tasty) and then off to bed for the boys. Or so we thought...
Tucker had a really hard time getting to sleep but when he finally did (around 8:30) he was out. Tyson got up several times and my mother finally went to lay down with him around midnight. My mom is an angel!
Both boys were up at 6:45 this morning. But again my mom rescued me and watched the tyrants while I caught a few more zzz's on the couch. Then we got dressed and headed to my favorite local-Walmart! Shopped for about an hour then headed home for lunch. The boys actually took descent naps and then we were off to see grandma and grandpa (they are actually Stu's grandparents). They boys played and played and played some more. We had a great relaxing dinner with Stu's family and tried our best not to get carried away by all the mosquitoes. Bedtime was calling so we loaded up and headed back to my parent's house. The boys went down VERY well (compared to last night) and I am now headed to bed BEFORE 10:30! All-in-all it was a good day!

I hope to see you this time! How wonderful to have your mom help so much. I will be reading this quite a bit getting my head wrapped around the whole 2 boys thing.

I'm so bummed we missed each other by a day. We were out of SA by 1:00 on Friday. I hope you guys have a great weekend! So excited about the new house!
