Our Daddy left for Costa Rica late last night. He went on a surf trip with his brother for 6 days. This is a trip Matt has wanted to take for as long as I have known him. I am so excited for him to get to realize one of his dreams, but we will miss him so!! Matt and I haven't been apart for this long since before we were married. And he has never been away from the kids for longer than 2 days. Megan drew this picture for her Daddy and we hid it in his luggage. It's Matt surfing with a sun and a rainbow. I know it will warm his heart for the days he is away.
Matt took our good camera with him, so I am stuck with our old dinosaur this week. It's funny how fast technology improves on itself. This "old" camera was state of the art less than 5 years ago. And now it seems so big, so heavy, so SLOW. I guess I will just have to put up with it because I know I will want to take lots of pictures this week...KATE IS COMING HOME!! My mom's surgery is Friday, so she and Paul are flying in Wednesday night through the weekend. Tonight when we kissed Daddy goodbye before bed, Megan said "I will be so sad Daddy.....until my Kate comes!" and Molly chimed in "And my Paul!" We all laughed.
I have always wanted to get professional pictures done of our "4 Generations" - My Gramma, my mom, my sister and myself, and my daughters. But we are rarely ever all in the same place at the same time and all looking presentable! Knowing that my sister was coming to town, and that after Friday - my mom would most likely not be in the picture taking mood for the next year or so - I bit the bullet and made the phone call. Click Here to see who's taking our pictures on Thursday! I can't tell you how excited I am!
