Last Weekend Recap

I can't believe it's already been over a week, but I have to share with you what I did last weekend before it gets too far away from me. I can't believe how quickly this month has flown by!!

Last weekend was my first time to visit my hometown for just 1 day. It was absolutely delightful, and I'm so glad I took the opportunity to go. I rode the train for 8 hours and I only spent 5 1/2 hours with them, but it was wonderful!!!

The original purpose was for my sister-in-law's baby shower, but when it got moved, I kept the tickets and went down anyway. But, the real kicker is I kept it a secret, not even telling my brother until the day before I was arriving.

I shared in the last leg of her pregnancy with Jeremi, and not having seen her since Christmas, it was definitely worth it! I'm so thankful for Amtrak and it's ability to make travel to see my family so much easier! :)

Mom, bro, and niece Cayley waiting for me as the train arrived

Here's Cayley enjoying her chips at Roly Poly for lunch {isn't she just so insanely cute?!?!}

Here's niece Olivia shortly after we met up with her and her mom at Olivia's gymnastics center. She was about to start practicing when we showed up and shocked them both like crazy! {The look on Jeremi's face was priceless!}

Cayley being normal

My two beautiful, sweet-as-pie nieces, whom I love more than I can even put into words


I had so much fun with them and am so glad, despite it being so short and so hot, that I was able to hang out with them!


Tracie swung by for about a half hour and that was a pure delight too!!! 

Jeremi will hate me for sharing this picture but I thought it was sweet anyway....the only one I have of me touching baby :) {the girls were taking most of the pictures}

The sun was so bright either the pics turned out too dark or we were squinting! My hometown is the first/last stop on this line, so here we were killing 15 minutes until it was time for them to pull out. They just sit there until it's on the minute for when they're supposed to depart. So it's cool for me to pop on, save my seat, talk to the conductors, get back off, and say my goodbyes until it's right before they leave. Here was a moment when I was thinking 'yeah they're probably about to pull out, we really need to get this picture!' And I'm glad I did! 

Feeling blessed and thankful. 
Still feeling a bit surreal about it all. 
So glad I had the next day to relax and let my Fibro not freak out!

How could it not be fabulous when you have wonderful people to visit such as these?
