A Whirlwind of a Week.

So it has been a little over a week since my last post but for good reason, TRAVEL. Both for fun and for work. Justin and I took the day off last Friday to make it an extra long weekend and jumped on a quick flight to Milwaukee with Kaden to visit the Garretts. We got to see the briefly in December but really haven't been able to just hang out since September when we were last there. It was a little vacation that was much needed for everyone. We got there just before lunch time on Friday and hugs were shared all around. We spent a majority of the weekend just relaxing and allowing the kids to play with one another but managed to get a few tours of Milwaukee in. On Friday night we went to Organ Piper Pizza, which was a mix between a Chuck E Cheese and a dueling piano bar. It was fantastic and the kids really seemed to enjoy the music and there was so much for them to look at and keep them entertained, ducks that rang bells, lights that flicked on and off, Raggedy Ann doll that did flips, and then there was the arcade and luckily Kaden and GG were too young to be begging to go in there. It was a great start to our mini-vacation with our dear friends.

The kids slept in until 9 on Saturday, an unheard event in the South house and then we got up and headed to the Milwaukee Market which kind of reminded me of Pikes Market in Seattle but indoors. We walked around and got to see what they had to offer and then we each picked out where we wanted to eat. I chose a BBQ Pork sandwich, why-no idea, it couldn't be as good as KC's BBQ and it wasn't but Kaden and I still polished it off. After leaving the market we dropped the big boys off at a local pub and Tugce and I took the little ones back to the condo for their naps. That night was boys night out and girls night in but we would get our payback the following day when Tugce and I enjoyed an afternoon at the spa. I have never had a prenatal massage but I will certainly be going back for another before Logan decides to make his arrival. Sunday evening and Monday morning, we just relaxed and hung out and before we knew it, we were loading back up into the tahoe and heading back to the airport for our flight back to KC. We had to say our goodbyes and we said them as quickly as we could because the tears were about to start. We miss our dear friends so much and wish we were able to see them more often but fortunately it is a quick flight and a cheap ticket. Thank you Justin, Tugce and GG for a wonderful weekend, we love spending time with you guys and can't wait till we get to see you again in April!

We finally pulled into the drive a little after 10, got Kaden situated and in bed and turned in for the night knowing that it was back to the grind on Tuesday. Even more, back to the airport for Mommy, I was headed to Boston for a couple meetings but luckily it was just an overnight trip. Justin kept the little man up past his bedtime so that when I pulled in the drive tonight, he was there to welcome me home. What a feeling and what a hug from my favorite little man. It may be tough to leave my boys when I have to travel for work but coming home to a welcoming like that, almost makes it worth it.

 My Sweet Little Gisele!

 Umm, where did he learn this from?

 Kaden had lots of fancy poses!

Kaden's spot. He sat here all weekend long. And now opens his mouth for the camera-perfect.
