Back from our trip...

Boy, are we all tired. We took yesterday as a detox day. Don't get me wrong, I love, and the kids love, going to my Mom's, but boy, is it a long drive! But, we made it. We left thursday, thinking the kids would sleep if we drove at night. I have to be honest. They were both awake and screaming most of the drive. Then the next day, I took Beeba 2 with me and went to work with my mom. She loves showing off her grandkids. Beeba 1 and my husband came later. Saturday was the wedding that did not want a nursing baby at it. Of course, since Beeba 2 is only 2 months old, and the wedding and events around it were to last ALL DAY (think, 9:30 am till 10 or later in the evening) I of course stayed away. the kids and I hung out with my mom and tried to stay cool while my husband went to the wedding.

We went shopping friday and saturday. As he promised, my Brother bought me the Reader/Writer box for my Embroidery Machine. And the bigger size hoop for it. And I was able to order a set of 100 colors of thread! I have been practicing on the machine with the sampler card and the few colors I already had, so now I am ready for business with the embroidery. As soon as my thread gets here.

Sunday we had a "breakfast" to go to. Also wedding related. This time, though, we were told the kids were welcome, but that if needed to nurse, I shoudl run away and hide. Well, I'm sorry, but in a house full of people, there are not very many places to hide, even if I had wanted to (which I didn't) the thing that got me most though? I don't think anyone realized that 90% of the time I was holding Beeba 2 (she got passed around a little.. lots of family), she was nursing. Nobody realized she was nursing. And if they did, they couldn't see anything. So all their worries about her at the wedding? Just their neuroses.

After the breakfast, we were planning to go to a family pool, but there were severe weather warnings all day. They were saying there would be hail up to an inch and a half in diameter. There weren't, but we couldn't know that ahead of time, and decided if the weather was being predicted so bad, we had better not take the kids out.

And Of course Monday we drove back. It took forever to get home. By the time we got here, we were all tired, cranky, and ready for bed.

The saddest part of all this is that in the whole weekend, not one picture was taken. Not one. Very sad. Oh well. there will be other times.
