Thursday was fabulous. Seriously, fabulous. Every year, Ms. Lisa (vintageshoelove
) and family and husbands family travel down to Cocoa Beach, Florida. This was the second time Marlowe and I have made the small two+ hour journey to visit them. The first time
, both our babies couldn’t even stand, they were just big fatty balls of adorable baby joy. This year, it was amazing to see them running, playing, kissing, and giggling together.
I woke up to a bright and early six am text message from a friend on thursday morning (my friends and I don’t sleep). I decided “well, I guess now is as good a time as any to pack up a sleeping baby and drive north”. So thats what we did. Two hour drive north, six hours in the sun, two hour drive south, whip up dinner (this mac and cheese
), clean baby, clean house, shower, and end day: on the couch with Marlowe in lap, feeling like a super mama. (And of course blog, but it’s after midnight, so I don’t know if it counts?) It’s kinda amazing the amount of things you can conquer in one day, by yourself, if you really want to, isn’t it? Well, today, as exhausting as it was for parts, was so incredibly amazing and I wouldn’t have had it any other way. I can’t wait for next year. And I definitely can’t wait until Saturday when I will be meeting up with Lisa and husband in Orlando for even more (baby-free) good times. Look out weekend, here I come.
saffron and marlowe: the two cutest babies alive.
Aren’t our little kiddos twins?! We always say Marlowe and Saffron look VERY similar to each other, but this trip we actually overheard strangers say “look at those twins!” and had others ask us about “our twins”. Marlowe is actually two months older then little Saffron, but what do you think… fraternal twins!? I say: yes!
Happy weekend everyone!
***By the way! This will be the last day to enter into The Ride For Kids Giveaway (24 hours or so left?). Remember, each dollar you donate goes directly to help children with brain cancer. I think it goes without saying that this is a really great cause and would mean so much to families struggling with such a terrible disease…. so please, if you can, help out…. and maybe win some awesome prizes too 🙂
