A successful return...

but just barely...the drive home was a bit of a bear...it took us a looong eight hours to get home but we enjoyed our visit south. :) Above is sweet little Moses with his gang of buddies that accompany us often on short trips and long...
We always have a few new little toys to entertain him on long trips...along with our dvd player...he was as good down and back as you can expect a child of his age to be...he was a little tearful towards the end...but honestly we were nearly at that point too. :)
We all took Moses to some new playgrounds...the ones in the shade were the best...suuuuuuper hot down there...another reason that I LOVE Virginia...just the right amount of cold and hot. :)
Moses loved playing in his aunt and uncles slip and slide. :)...though he did more slipping than sliding really. :)
He is that pale because he always wears the strongest sunscreen I can find...not because I never take him out. :)
We went to a fun local BBQ place...
They had live bluegrass music...which Moses loved and danced around to...he also loved the BBQ...which he continually stole off of my plate by heaping spoonfuls.
Not that kind of pickin'.
For you city folk. : )
We introduced the family to the wii. :)
Moses was Hokie proud...even in Clemson country.
I think Moses had the best time...he slept great at night and naps, got to see lots of new playgrounds and hang out with folks who had little better to do than play with him.

We were pooped when we got home...after we unpacked, we just hung out and were lazy for the rest of the night...Doug and I went to bed at 8:30...and I slept like a rock until 6am. :) The nausea has kicked it up a gear and I have developed the nose of a bloodhound...right now the smell or thought of corn is making me even more sick...Moses and I spent the morning cuddling under blankets and watching Sesame Street because that is as far as I could move...I have a little more energy at the moment but can't shake the nausea no matter what I do. :( Poor me right? :) And fyi...as of last Friday baby was the size of a blueberry...hands and feet are forming.

Pin It!

I was noticing your little baby was growin' arms and legs:) It's always crazy to think that there is actually a human growing inside! Glad you had fun on your trip:)

try some candied ginger for the upset stomach. You can get it at health food stores, and there's a menonite store in Stuarts draft that has all sorts of health stuff, it's called "the cheese shop". I am getting a little nauseaus (sp?) and I noticed with Colleen that as long as you keep food in your stomach, but not a lot, that you'll feel better. The ginger really helps too! Good luck and at least the sickness is worth it in the end!

Glad you had fun! But glad you're back. Sorry the nausea isn't going away [yet]. My friend (dance director) got her button bouquet via her teenage daughter who teaches my daughters class. Anyway she called me today and was just so excited to receive them. I'm serious, she was giddy. She really needs friends who are caring and praying right now and I'm so happy to help in that area. Anyway, I thought you'd like to know how much joy and happiness your flowers brought to my friend!
