It’s been a busy couple of day getting the apartment ready for our four-week departure, hosting a home organization party, and packing for our trip to Texas followed by our two-week trip to England. We arrived in Texas this morning after an all-night drive with the kids. Along the way we saw some great vintage Texas signage such as, “The Dragon Food Cafe: Old Fashion Hamburgers and Oriental Food.” We arrived at 8:30 CST and I just woke up from seven blissful hours of sleep.
Today is also special because it’s John’s third birthday. His grandparents, aunt and uncle had a transportation-themed cake waiting for him, and the cutest little Radio Flyer tricycle with a tiny personalized Texas license plate. It’s incredible how much he’s changed in three short years, yet how he’s still that same happy, sweet, silly boy.
I love you, sweetheart. Thanks for making me a mother.
