Something I Can Never Say To My Husband.....

On the momentous occasion of the Royal Wedding, I can never say, "Honey, Can we go to London?" Cause I've been there! Almost 16 years to the day. Joe and I along with his parents went to London the week of American Mothers Day, May 14. Exactly two months to the day I became a Mother:)

Buckingham Palace

Big Ben

London Bridge

Windsor Castle

Tea at the Browns

Westminster Abby

We rented a "flat" in Chelsea and hit all the "tourist" hot spots. We went to plays, castles, churches and ate at McDonald's! Joe's favorite story is that I took a $30+ taxi to the closest Dunkin Donuts, which happened to be in Piccadilly Circle, and made the cab driver wait while I got my donuts. Maybe that's why Drew loves donuts so much.

I thought NOTHING could top last Easter, I was wrong. Something magical happens at Garner that can only be described in a Montage :)

'For She Was Momma

I was going through a box of misc. stuff and found this very OLD picture

Me, back in the day, sitting on my first car with one of my brothers friends.

And then there was this, fast forward a few years. I guess I must have written notes and put them on the doors to keep Drew in. Now we leave the doors wide open and try and get him to go out!

Drew and Hunter finally got their much need R/R for spring beak. We got a sweet invitation to spend time with friends at their lake house.

They played hours of Monopoly with these two:

Ms. R. has decorated in a 40s style motif that is just precious. There are several ideas I will definitely be coping, after all isn't imitation the sincerest form of flattery. Exhibit A

Prints from the National parks they have visited.

We took a drive and saw this, I guess there's a drive-thru for everything.

The food, fellowship and hospitality was awseome. We came home rested and ready to go back :)
