What a Weekend

What I'm about to tell you is very sad, pathetic and shocking. . . I have never been on a trip away by myself with no kids and no husband!!!!!  I know, no way.  I am usually with Dave (which is preferred) or at least one or all of the kids.  Weird.  And I didn't even realize it.  No wonder I'm always on the verge of losing it.  

Jamie Rohner passed away last week and I flew down to go to her funeral.  It was so good to see so many people I love and have missed.  Funerals are bitter sweet that way.  And it is always inspiring to hear about the life of a person you've loved and looked up too.  It always brings life into perspective and reminds me of what's most important.  What a gift. 

I was also able to spend some quality time with my family uninterrupted.  I loved every minute of it!  So much fun.  I miss you guys!  (Stop with the guilt, Aaron).  Thanks for all the entertainment and extra lbs.  And I've decided I don't like Oreo balls.  Sorry, Kate.  Here are some pictures recapping my beautiful weekend.

Good for you. It's very needed after having three kids. With your family so close you should do it more often!

I'm buying my plane ticket for a girls trip to Newport in 2 weeks- want to come?

Looks like fun! And the girls looked great on Sunday, by the way. Points for Dave!
