I'm Being Spoiled with a Vacation Before My Vacation

I forget how selfless my sister-in-law Cassie is.  This picture is a perfect example.  Here she is, balancing my kid on top of her little baby belly while also taking pictures... just because I asked her if she could hang onto Sam so I could play with my new lens.

I haven't cleaned up the toys in our living room since she got here on Monday.  And I haven't had a screaming child clinging to my legs while cooking dinner either.  I wasn't expecting having family visit before our getaway to be stressful per se.  But I didn't expect it to feel like such a mini-vacation, you know?  I already feel refreshed and I haven't even left on our trip, yet!

It's also be rocking our socks that the kids have been sleeping in till almost 8:30 every morning this week.  Zave's adjusting to the time change still and my kids are exhausted from lack of naps.  So everyone gets a nice lazy late start to the day and then we get to go out for an afternoon of sight-seeing or shopping.

It's been a great week so far :o)


  1. Sammy's bonding with her new baby girl cousin!

  2. She is one of the most selfless people I Have ever known. It's one of the things I share when talking about "my first close christian friendship".

    1. Aww I'll have to let her know that! (And it's so true!)
