a week with nana

Boden had an exciting time while we were away on vacation - Nana came to stay with him for the week - and they had so much fun. They had picnics at the park, went to the zoo, went swimming, and then went to Grant's Farm on Friday when Poppa joined them. My mom is a kindergarten teacher - so I think the fast pace of a toddler was an easy fit for her - she's used to changing activities every 10 minutes! Here's some photos of their week:

Thankfully, he was happy to have us come home and very excited to see us. He especially liked the sombrero we brought him (too bad it was a little small, but he doesn't mind at all)

A Refreshing Retreat

Michael and I got the opportunity to spend the week at a resort in Mexico last week...alone! It was our first time away from Boden for more than one night. I was a little nervous about leaving him for so long, but very excited about Michael and I getting to spend some time together. Lately life has just been busy, busy with the new church, Michael's school, buying a house, etc. And we know it's not going to be slowing down soon with the coming arrival of little miss. So, we took the chance when we got it, and had a great time.

this is where we spent most of our days, just relaxing and reading

Boden had a great week with mama & daddy gone, but he was sure excited to see us when we got off the plane - and we were excited to see him too!
