A week away

 Chad and I just returned from 6 days away from the kids.  This is the longest we have been away with out either of them...ever.  I have to say - it was fantastic.  We took more naps than I knew was possible and we truly relaxed.  We received daily pictures from Loli who was graciously taking care of them, and they clearly had a great time.  Highlights included a trip to Luby's and a visit to the zoo with Loli's family - including "Grandpa" who is 100 years old!  Since then, Will draws pictures for Loli's husband and for Grandpa and he asks to play with his new friends (Loli's nieces and nephews).  Will had his own bedroom - complete with a king size bed!  Loli attempted to put Katie in the pack n' play in the room as well, but Will quickly let her know that it was his room.  The room looked a lot like his room seeing as how he brought so many of his toys from home. 

Will wanted to pack his own bag for Loli's house, so Loli let him while she packed for Katie.  When she came back to check on him, he had packed tons of his toys, his boppies, and then every single pair of pajamas he could find (which is probably no less than 15 pairs).

It honestly made me feel so good to see that they were in such good hands and that they had a great time.  Coming home to them was wonderful - we were greeted with huge smiles and big hugs.  Will told us how much he missed us and held on tight to us for the rest of the night.  It was good to have him in my arms again!  Katie has definitely picked up speed and she can places pretty quickly now with her crab like crawl.  We are so excited but yet cannot believe we will be celebrating her 1st birthday this weekend!  Time is flying by...
