We got home yesterday after spending five nights in Little Rock at my parents house. I don't recall ever spending that many nights there since I've had the boys. It was such a nice little change of scenery and having adult company all day and extra helping hands with the boys all day was so refreshing.
I was able to have a lot of "me" time. I floated on a raft in the pool for over an hour all by myself. I think I may have even fallen asleep for a few minutes. It was so relaxing and nice!! I got to do a little shopping and go for my runs when I wanted to vs having to time it with the boys sleep schedule. I so enjoyed my Mom and Grammy's company all day and of course my Dad's at night. My nephew, Landon, was in town from Florida and I always enjoy getting to see him. He is such a good kid and I'm so proud of the young man he is. We played an intense game of Marco/Polo and I seriously had so much fun and laughed so, so, so hard. I felt like a kid again and Landon and I made a fun memory.
Obviously my sweet niece was there. It's so fun and cute watching her and Campbell play together since they're so close in age. They will have the best time for so many years to come! My great aunt and uncle came up for a visit and I loved getting to visit with them. And obviously my brother and SIL too. It was just a nice family time.
We go down for a weekend frequently but it always feels a little rushed and like we run out of time for things. I told my Mom we may go back again for a few days before the boys go back to school. If they don't mind having us. I'm sure they're enjoying having their clean, quiet house back! Haha!!
Five nights may have been just one night too long for the boys. By Wednesday they both started having little meltdowns. The kind that were obvious to me that they just needed to be back home and into their own routine. When we got home, they were SO happy to see their Daddy. Bennett would NOT let Scott put him down. Scott would try to hand Bennett to me and Bennett would cry and cling to Scott's neck! Campbell had so much to tell Scott and was so happy to see his Daddy again. When he woke up earlier that morning, the first words out of his mouth were "I want to go see Daddy" because I had told him when I tucked him in bed the night before that we were going to go home to see Daddy the next day. Haha! Scott, if that doesn't make you feel loved I don't know what does!!
It was so fun to get away for a few days and change up our routine. It feels good to be home though. We didn't leave our house today. We just stayed here and did our thing. It felt good. I'm sure boredom will kick in early next week but for now we're happy to be Home Sweet Home and back into our normal routine.
