Seattle Trip, Part Two

I'm kind of mourning the fact that our girl's trip is over. If I sound dramatic, you would too if you had these women as your best friends.

Our five days were spent as follows:
Laugh
Eat
Drink
Talk Talk Talk Talk Talk
Laugh
Eat
Drink
Talk Talk Talk Talk Talk
Confide
Cry
Encourage
Laugh
Eat
Drink
Talk Talk Talk Talk Talk  
Repeat...

In between we cuddled baby Griffin, who is the perfect six week old. Truth: I kept forgetting his was there because he is such a good baby and Hillary is such a good Mom.

We watched the Olympics, danced til our feet hurt at a concert, shopped and enjoyed being friends without the responsibility of being Moms. The only problem with coming home was the fact that I was so tired. How was I tired after having a five day vacation with no kids? I guess that's what you get when you stay up way too late every night with best friends and bottles of wine. We all imagined taking naps and reading books, but when it came down to it we didn't want to miss out on talking. AND I booked horribly early flights each way, so the girls had to be up at 3 15 a.m. to drive me to the airport...sorry. Thanks for being an amazing host Hill! Can't wait to have you all at my house next year!

I missed my babies and Mike, but I knew they were having fun. As always, it feels good to be home. The kids gave me huge hugs and it's like I was never gone. Thanks to all our husbands and families who give us away for this week each year. It's the best gift you could give us.

 
 
 

Well aren't we shinny.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Here is a choppy video thrown together before nap time ends. Nothing special, but makes me smile because of each memory. I LOVE YOU GIRLS.
