We Made It Home with Almost Everything
We're home from California. We had a relatively smooth trip back and forth considering I was travelling alone with two preschoolers. The good news is that I did manage to arrive home with both children intact. The bad news is that I left White Blankie, my best girl's most precious possession, at Grammy and Papa's house. NOT GOOD! Of course, I purposely left it out of the suitcases so we would have access to it in the car. Unfortunately, I never put it in the car! We have only had two brief meltdowns over the absence of White Blankie. She understands where it is, and she wants to go get it right now! I guess it didn't sink in that it took 8-9 hours of travel time to go to Grammy's. Thankfully, White Blankie is on the way to Tennessee by way of the USPS. Hopefully, it will be home again by Saturday!

The kids and I had a wonderful time visiting Grammy and Papa (my parents). I will share some of the highlights. When we arrived last Thursday evening, the kids were already asleep. We put them to bed immediately. On Friday morning (very early since my kids don't adjust well to time changes), Grammy showed my best girl a collection of necklaces. HUGE HIT! These necklaces received a great deal of attention all week.

Grammy surprised my favorite boy with a checkers game that she had ordered from Cracker Barrel (they don't have Cracker Barrel in CA). Another hit! Amazingly, my favorite boy was able to beat both Grammy and Papa on numerous occasions. :)

Friday was a beautifully sunny day. The high was 95! We went to a park close to my parents' house, and the kids had a blast. Being in the desert, however, proved to be more taxing than we expected. We were only able to stay for 20 minutes or so before we had to leave for a water break and cool down!

Papa and my favorite boy spent a good deal of time in the backyard playing baseball. My favorite boy says he beat Papa 31-0. I am wondering about the rules and fairness of this game. Also, Grammy and Papa have a Little Tykes bouncy "castle" that they inflate when the grand kids visit. The kids jumped and bounced all weekend!

On Monday evening, we went to Chuck-E-Cheese. My kids know that Grammy is always willing to go with them. This location had a ride we do not have at our local Chuck-E-Cheese, and it was a so fun for my best girl. The chair moved up and around in circles as the hand on the clock moved.

The week was fun for everyone! We love you Grammy and Papa! Now...off to do the laundry!
