been gone awhile

so here goes with the first post of several updates....

pete and i were in california a few weeks ago. amazing trip. first time i'd left the kids that long or gone that far. though there were moments (like when we called home after the first full day to find out mia had been throwing up all day and the schedule for the next day had to be rearranged and changed from california at 9:30 at night - just put me on a plane!) overall everything went really well. the kids got to stay with grandma and grandpa and play with their friends during the day. i came home first and i was so glad i came back when i did. poor mia spiked a fever of 103 that first night home. no easing back into things around here. we were so grateful for our family and friends who helped out. they are all so amazing. one of my girlfriends even got ahold of our camera and took some cute shots (see the one above) of the kids playing. thanks love! (i didn't actually find them on the camera until today when i was downloading other pictures. such a fun surprise!!)

so once pete got home and the kids were doing better we decided to have a fun "date" night with the kids. we had dinner backward and headed out for dessert first. hilarious! we went to order ice cream and mia kept telling her daddy that she wanted chocolate. now she's only really had vanilla before so he figured he'd stick with something he knew she liked. she and asher got vanilla to split, he ordered chocolate brownie something and i got cookie dough. mia had one bit of his and forget it. she staked her claim to the chocolate and proceeded to eat most of his and refuse to touch her vanilla. that's my girl!! asher liked the ice cream but was having way more fun with the cone and the spoon. it was a very fun "double-date" though it didn't really leave any of us all that hungry for dinner.
