We are back home, again! More travel! We spent a few days in South Carolina visiting John's dad and stepmom, Jane. We had a great time! The kids went to a cool kids museum where both kids enjoyed the Construction Zone and the Fairy Tale Land. We celebrated Andrew's first birthday. Like his big sister, he was largely unimpressed by his birthday cake. But, he did love his gifts of balls and moving vehicles, though. (His favorite things!)
I had a wonderful afternoon by myself. I got to drive John and Jane's convertible around--that was a blast! I ate lunch at Jason's Deli with only a cheesy teen vampire novel for company. I shopped all by myself. I got a manicure and a pedicure all by myself. Side note: is it just my shitty, peeling, paper-thin nails? Or does everyone's manicure start peeling by the end of day one and look completely trashy by the end of day two?
Andrew decided he really liked Papa John's remote control Porsche.Becca got to do whatever she wanted, with lots of attention, so naturally, she was happy.
I'm trying to get a grip on life now and looking forward to my parents' visit this coming weekend! We are loving all this grandparent time we're getting. It is fabulous!
