We've been busy!

It's been a wonderful 2 weeks of having Josh home and most importantly, off work! I have been so spoiled by my dear husband that it's going to be a rough transition back to "normal" life. In addition to giving the kids all of their baths and letting me sleep in almost every morning, Josh also sent me on a spa day followed by shopping ALL BY MYSELF!
The spa was great, and they even washed my hair so that I wouldn't be oily the rest of the day! Nice ;) And shopping with no time constraints whatsoever! It was like a little bit of heaven...here are the highlights of my shopping:

- I wandered through Pottery Barn without uttering "Don't touch!" lest my darlings knock over some $500.00 candle. (Yes PB, I like your stuff, but come on-- who pays $75.00 for a decorative pillow??)

- I tried things on in stores that have dressing rooms that don't accommodate a double stroller (read: Stores with nice clothes)

- I shopped in Victoria's Secret without my 3-year-old yelling "I can see that lady's panties!"

- I made only one potty break

It was a wonderful day!

We did lots of things together as a family as well of course. We all went with Alex's preschool class to the pumpkin patch, we played at Chuck-E-Cheese's, we went swimming several times, to many great Boise parks, and to the zoo. It was a great time to reconnect as a family and we really enjoyed it.

Here are some pictures from our time together...

More posts to follow...I have catching up to do!

That all looks super fun! I'm not sure Derek has a license for that car though. He looks a little young to drive!

Chuck E Cheese will be on our short list of things we can do too :) Looks like you guys had a fun two weeks together!

The zoo looks like it was fun! We've got to hit it up soon. Sorry we didn't join you.

You all packed in quality time! I know it won't ever make up for the time spent away, but it sure is sweet!

ps - I'm so jealous rereading your day of shopping fun
