Proof of our park date! This park has the kind of "toys" that I used to play on as a kid. It triggered so many memories, and so much nausea, ha ha! I don't know how I used to stomach the spinning stuff!We had one heckuva weekend and I have zero pictures to show for it... #facepalm. We went home to Eric's parents house for the weekend and I was so excited about this trip! While Eric's hometown is far from glamorous and exciting, it truly feels like home now and that is the best feeling! I married into the best family, and I think Eric lucked out as well ;) Anyway! This wasn't our normal trip home, we were actually going to a family reunion of sorts! My mother in law's side of the family all came to town (we missed out getting to see one aunt, darn it!) which created the best dang excuse for everyone to get together!
Since I didn't really take any pictures, you'll just have to take my word for it when I tell ya that our weekend consisted of: park time, lots of walks, playing in the yard (if she could, Mia would live in her grandparents backyard!), lots of talking, catching up and getting to know each other, a nap with Mia (what?! I don't remember the last time I've been able to sleep with Mia sleeping in my arms!), cousins, cousins, cousins(!!!), eating- non stop eating, crafting, Mia's cousins teaching her a new word- "cheeeeeeeese!!", church, me successfully inviting myself to a Lake Powell trip next summer (at least they let me believe I've successfully invited myself, ha!), celebrating my niece turning 2, and tons of pictures! You'd think with how many times a camera or phone snapped a picture, it would have reminded me to pull the dSLR camera out of the jeep, but nope! Mia, that angel baby, has permanently melted my brain, ha ha! But I have no doubt that Eric was so happy that I was living in the moment instead of making him take a picture every 5 seconds ;) And I'm even more grateful that we were able to enjoy so much family time over the weekend, our hearts are so full right now!!
