Grins

This week is going to be crazy busy!  We're scrambling to get the kids packed with everything they could possibly need while staying with Mimi and family for several days... We're trying to find warm clothes for us to wear on our "honeymoon" trip to Pennsylvania... We're attempting to get all of those {small} details taken care of befor leaving this Thursday, and there are a lot of them.  To say the very least, we're going to be busy. 

But we are so excited to get to leave on Thursday!  We'll have a couple of days with the family, and then Mark and I are "leaving on a jet plane..." (sorry, I couldn't resist breaking out in song for that one).  The truth is, we are {very} overdue for a vacation.  We are both worn out in so many areas of life.  We've been pulled in a million different directions for the last months, and we are in need of a break from our {normal} life.  We are both thrilled to be able to get away. 

We've never been anywhere {minus the hospital when we were giving birth to Austin} without our kids.  So, I'm sure that will be difficult to do, especially for me, but I know we all need it.  And, I am not worried about the kids.  Katie has been talking about this {special} trip for months!!  She is thrilled to get to "play and sleep with Mimi while you go on baycation" :) 

We're excited...

We're making lists...

We're packing our things...

We're heading out on Thursday...

We're crazy busy!


Forgive me for the lack of posts for the next two weeks.  I promise I will make up for it when we return from our trip.  We'll have some beautiful  pictures to share, I'm sure!  But for now...enjoy my favorite new site...Austin's GRIN!!



Isn't that the most precious thing you've ever laid eyes on?  {That was a rhetorical question, we all know there is nothing cuter than this sweet grin!}

I hope you are able to get everything done! We can't wait to see you all! Sydney likes to look at your close-up pictures of the kiddos (like the one of Austin today)...she laughs and grins when I show them to her :)
