I have had my mom and grandma here since the 14th.  We have got to visit, shop, cook, bake, go to the zoo, play games, and more shopping.  We went to a pumpkin patch had misters convention. Then they  kept Tyler for Derek and I could spend the day and evening together for our 6th wedding anniversary. We went to the Melting Pot and enjoyed are 2hour dinner kid free. I LOVE my his husband so much and am thankful for the years we have had to spend together. I  look forward to many more with him. Now today I will be taking my mom and grandma back to the airport. It's always hard to say goodbye. I am so glad they got to come and spend time with Tyler and get to know him better as he changes every day.  I just hope I we can get out there to them sooner rather then later. To visit again.  Here are a few pictures.

Ladies retreat was GREAT! I was so blessed by the messages, and prayer time. Visiting with all the ladies. And being kid free.  It was very needed.  I don't think I have ever laughed as hard as I did with all the crazy girls there.  The 2:30 am  conversations in are cabin. And such wonderful support for one another. Even though sleep didn't happen I feel so revived. Next year can't get here fast enough!  I got a super busy week ahead of me. Got to get the house ready for my mom and grandmas visit.

Or can I? This weekend is ladies retreat. I have never left my baby for more then five hours. I find myself sick about leaving him. Not that I don't trust his daddy to care for him. But I don't want Tyler to feel like I am just leaving him. How do you explain to a two year old that momma is gonna be gone for two nights? I know it is good for us both, but man is it hard.  How do you not cry when you walking out the door knowing that he doesn't even see this huge thing coming. Derek and me have also talked about going to a bed and breakfast for our anniversary and leaving Tyler with my mom and grandma for the night but I don't know. How do you part with them? Does it get easier with time, age, and leaving them each time. My mom and dad always talk how they can't wait to have Tyler for the summer and I am always thinking ya right keep dreaming. I can't let my baby be gone a whole summer. I am afraid the hardest is yet to come. I love my son so very much!
