Vacation time!

I'm finally getting to take a mini vacation. With free tickets to the Dallas Lego KidsFest, we are making it an overnight stay. Since I worked my limit of 40 hours all by 9:30 this morning, I was able to leave a full 3 hours before my scheduled shift end. Came home to my beautiful babies and promptly got to cleaning and packing. Then of course fell asleep to the sounds of "Mom, mommy? Mom!" I keep telling myself I'll change my name but I always seem to forget. 
My 2 year old tells me, "Wake up! I love you!" My heart does melt! She's such a sweetheart. My boys of course are little crazies intent on destruction and give hugs to try to get out of cleaning their own messes. I'm wise to them though...
Packing isn't my favorite thing.
Unpacking is way easier. Figuring out everyone's outfits and knowing what we will be needing while away from home... It's draining! I keep telling myself it's just a couple days and everything will be great. The kids will of course have fun. Besides, I love going places. But I prefer being there to getting there. Driving and listening to, Are we there yet? Not so much....
But here's to plenty of fun memories. I'll post about the event as soon as I can! Have a great Labor Day weekend.


  1. Gee. Changing "Mom"? I have said I would do that for years. Haha. Also, packing is just the beginning. With me having 10 kids, a vacation was never so for me (mom). You are the one who has to keep organizing, cleaning, feeding, and then re-pack! It's just a harder job than doing things from home. Enjoy your time!

    1. It was a mess, but the kids had fun and that's all that matters in the end.
