No time for bloggin'

After our Alabama/Georgia trip to visit some of my family, we had a mere four days at home (spent helping our friends move and doing laundry!) and then packed up the suitcases again and headed to Spring, TX. I know, not too far, but still required a FULL car of suitcases, stroller, bouncer, dog, pack 'n play, etc, etc, etc, you get the picture! We spent a fun-filled four days with Paul's mom's side of the family, swimming and eating, eating and swimming. I think I'm gaining back all my baby weight. :P Pictures from that family reunion will probably be my next post...

THEN as if that weren't enough time of living out of a suitcase and for Charlie to be completely off schedule and waking up three times a night... Charlie and I headed out Monday morning to San Antonio to visit my family! Our first road trip with just me and him, but he did great, only waking up once when I ran with him into Buckee's to use the restroom... by the way if you have never been to Buckee's, they really DO have the CLEANEST bathrooms around and I held it for about 45 minutes just so I could go there.... well worth it.

My dad was promoted to Lieutenant Colonel yesterday and we came in for his promotion ceremony and reception. It was so great and there were tons of people all so proud. Dad could not have been happier to have his only (albeit noisy) grandson there to show off to all his co-workers that have been hearing about him for a year now!

I completely agree with the Buckee's restrooms. I really like stopping there on my way to see my parents in Brenham. Hopefully, you will be able to be at home and resting.
