A Little Get Away

Last week the boys, Lauren, my mom and I spent a few days with my sister Marisa.  We had a great time spending time with one another.  My sister and I have always been close.  We were pretty inseparable as little girls and our hearts are still bound together even though many miles separate us.


I learned a few things while we were there:

A) This country hick can drive in rush hour traffic in a big city!

B) 11:00 AM on an 86 degree day with high humidity is probably not the best time to take 3 toddlers to a beautiful arboretum and butterfly house!


And finally-

C) Pack-N-Plays are not mommy friendly.  If you want to see two 30-something girls succumb to a fit of giggles.  Make them partially disassemble a pack-n-play at 11:00 PM, and try to fit it through a doorway- quietly.  You would think between the two of us we could have accomplished this, but every time we tried to head out the door, we bumped up against the trim.  We played out the scenario of bumping against the doorway, backing up, re-adjusting the sides of the pack-n-play, then moving forward again, only to hit the trim.  We did this about 6 or 7 times before one of us had a brainstorm.  We finally got out the doorway and down the hall, but not without much laughing and teasing.

Love You Sis!


  1. Hahaha! My mom and I had a similar Pack'nPlay experience when Snow White was little! For weeks afterward, we called each other Lucy and Ethel!!

  2. We had a great time, didn't we! We really enjoyed having you! Once we're settled in our new place there will be more room for runnin' and wrestlin'! You are always welcome to come anytime! I love these pictures of the kids! Overall, I think they did great! Love you!
