yesterday we finally arrived home after two long days of travel. the kids were amazing although lula asked if we were there yet about twenty times on our first day of travel! but minus a couple of diesel melt downs (which seem more and more frequent these days!), they did a great job of sitting still for hours on end in the car. they're pretty great kids. very flexible and adaptable.
lula leading diesel into the hotel our first night of travel. she's such a little mother, and i love how close these two are. sometimes lula will lean in close and say, "you're my best buddy." i hope it lasts!
minor tangent... diesel got to sleep in a big bed for the first time in his life since we didn't have our pack n play with us! we played musical beds several times and suffered through a serious melt down, but he actually did pretty good overall. might be time to transition him out of his crib.
we had such a good time at my parents' and we miss them terribly. driving home makes us hyper-aware of just how far away we are from them. but there's nothing like getting home and settling back into your own space. i really love our little house.
we were able to get home at a decent hour and put everything away. jay even mowed the back yard which had literally turned into a jungle in just two weeks. there were vines growing around our soccer goal! it was a little creepy! but when he started mowing, he noticed some movement in the grass. we have a couple of bunnies that frequent our backyard and apparently they decided to have their babies here! so they started hopping around when jay turned on the mower!
obviously he didn't want to accidentally run over them. so he was able to catch two which we put in a box until he finished. the kids watched over them diligently with very stern instructions not to touch them! it was a pretty sweet and cute way to end the evening.
