Memorial Day Memories

Jake decided to grace us with his presence once again (after a 2 week fatherhood haitus) and I was so happy to have any help I could get with our two little monkeys. We started the fun weekend out with a short visit from Jordan and Amanda and their little Jonah. Though appearances are deceiving, Jonah is actually older than Luke, he simply has a better metabolism. We then went with the family to our first Braves game of the season! According to me, we had prime seats since we were in the shade! According to Jake, he probably would have liked to have been a little closer. We had so much fun cheering on the game and playing with cousins...oh, and eating Cheetos...Cooper's all-time favorite snack!
We decided to set up the tent Sunday night and Jake and I were going to rough it in the backyard! However, I can't even handle sleeping in the backyard!! I gave it a good hour and a half and then dashed back into the house for a 1 AM potty break. Needless to say, after trying desperately to fall asleep for 90 minutes caused me to me head straight to my nice, bug-free, air-conditioned bed. Jake roughed it all by his lonesome. What's funny is that he's been gone for 2 weeks and we still don't share the same bed when we're together. How sad is that?
We had fun with Jake while it lasted, but now he's back in Tennessee for another week and I am heading to Colorado with Coop and Luke for a week. One day...one beautiful day...we'll all be together again!

We miss you guys. Seems like you are really handling being without Jake alot - I know it's hard but you seem to be doing a great job. Just remind yourself this is temporary. What's up with the stitches lately Coop and Kate. Those poor babies! Take care

Em, I don't know how you do it. That would be so rough. I am SO happy for you that you have your family nearby. I hope you have a great time in Colorado!!! Will you be back to your parents in time for your birthday, or should I send a card to Jennifer's house?

I'm with you on sleeping inside- I can't believe Jake didn't follow suit! Wish we could have been there for Memorial day!

Jene and Megan said...

I'm glad you guys got to see Jake- I would be DYING if Brian wasn't around when my kids were that young (and that close in age). Its so hard! Cheetos is Taylor's fave snack too- We'll go to the gas station and she'll be able to choose anything and that is always her choice- they are SOOO messy though!

That really stinks. I hate to leave Chad or have him take off. How does the Dentist school thing look?
