weekend crazy…

So, hi.

This weekend I had the opportunity to visit with my younger brother and his family. Which includes his yummy new little boy, Charlie. He’s almost five months old. And very snuggly. And smells like a baby. Super yummy.

Anyway.

I took advantage of the opportunity and packed up Finny (Hobbes had soccer games and birthday parties- he’s big like that) and hit the road. With my mom along for the ride. Which helped a lot, especially during potty breaks on the 5ish hour drive.

So, the weekend was great. And full of snuggly babies and low-country fun.

Out to eat with some tired babies on the first night…

Bouncy seats are the coolest…

We even made it out to Red’s for some drinks. On the water…

Just the “big kids”…

Breakfast on Sunday morning involved very cute babies…

And very giant cookies. Please, don’t ask. We needed food in Finn’s tummy for the ride home. And it didn’t hurt that Mommy MAY have wanted a bite. Not that I got one. He’s not really a sharer, that Finny…

Now, here’s why I haven’t been in touch. I had all intentions of downloading all my nice pictures (these are only the iPhone pics) and creating a beautiful and informative bloggy for you all to read YESTERDAY afternoon.

But pardon me while I got stuck in traffic.

THREE TIMES.

MAKING MY TRIP MORE THAN TWICE AS LONG AS IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN.

WITH A TWO YEAR OLD IN THE BACK SEAT.

I got home, drank two glasses of wine, cried a little, and went to bed.

Then I got up, loved on Hobbes (who I missed an incredible amount for only having been gone for two days), got him to school and started on the 27 thousand loads of laundry that seem to have built up since I left on Friday.

Then Finn and I went by the grocery store to pick up some milk on the way to get Hobbes from school.

And Finn shoved a whole cookie in his mouth.

And coughed a lot.

And threw the cookie up (along with some juice) all over the cart and his clothes.

And we got back in the car and I had unpacked my diaper bag on accident.

And we didn’t have enough time to go home to change before getting Hobbes.

So my child rode with me threw the pick up line.

Basically naked.

Please to enjoy.
