Ive MIA for a month and heres a quick breakdown of where and what weve been doing.
May 24th – 26th
We loaded up the kiddos and started our trip north, to Michigan. I was prepared for the worst but the kids really did great on the road. Ryley was entertained with a few toys, coloring books, and me in the third row. It helped that we stopped every 2 hours to let her run around at a rest area, welcome center or a Mcds play place. Our first night we stopped in Slidell, Louisana before heading to Georgia to pick up my sister-in-law. On the 26th we made it to Michign just before midnight.
May 27th – June 8th
We spent the next two weeks enjoying my husbands family, which included our adorable 9 month old nephew. It was the families first time seeing Avery and most of them hadnt seen Ryley in a year. We had no obligations or agenda so it was great. I even snuck in a few shopping trips without the kids. 🙂
June 9th – 12th
We spent another 3 days on the road back to Texas. Friday and Saturday night we stayed with my older brother and his family in Dallas. That was nice and relaxing as well since we hadnt seen them in a few months.
June 13th – current
Once we got home we spent most of our time at my parents since my mom had extreme grandbaby withdrawals while we were gone. Up until a few days ago I have been trying to get back into our routine we set up for our toddler. The schedule I had put together for Ryley really had no chance up in Michigan.
Also this past Thursday I let my HR know that I wasnt coming back to work and officially became a stay at home mom! :))) It was a very scary thing to do but I had Avery lying on the bed in front of me while I was on the phone with them. That defiantely helped me get the words out and stay calm and I’ve been excited about my decision every day since!
