Waiting eagerly for our friends to arrive:
Only good friends trudge through snowstorms to get to California. The poor travelers boarded their plane and sat on the tarmac for three hours before starting their six hour flight. The children did great and Carolyn now holds the title for "Best Mom Traveler." I promised her I would make it up to her with 70 degree weather. Now it is in the high 50's with a chance of rain. Please sunshine, don't let me down. It is so fun to see our baby boys do their similar baby boy things right next to each other. Scrumptious.
Blake is having a lot of fun with Elaine June. Today, they were pirates. Tomorrow, surfers (again, please sunshine, don't let me down):
This is what Carolyn and James looked like after I subjected them to an episode of Modern Family, Cougar Town, and then 1/3 of the Bachelor. I guess a good friend shouldn't make the mom of the year watch things like that, but hey, we needed a mini break from wrangling all those children.
Tuckered mom and baby:
It may be mayhem at times, but the energy of two, new families makes my heart glow.
