So much to say, so little time...

So here I sit at just past 5am. I have been up for over an hour with a migraine. What can I do? I think I'll update my neglected blog! So much to say. Where to begin? First of all, I want to tell my son Happy Belated Birthday! I know that I told you when it was your actual birthday, but I didn't post it. So sorry dude. (May the fourth be with you!! *he he* I crack myself up!!) Aidan turned 10 on the 4th. He is so glad that summer is here. The last few weeks of school were hectic. He did take part in the 4th grade spelling bee and WON!! See him with his trophy! So proud of him!!



Next, naturally, is baseball. While the team didn't exactly have a winning season, they all had a great time. All but 1 child had never played B-Ball before. Most moved up from C-Ball this year. Anyhow, they tried him out in several positions. He's never played catcher before. I must admit, I didn't care for it. I kept thinking someone would hit him in the head with the bat!! Baseball is over, at least until fall.



At bat...




Joe and I also took a much needed mini vacation!! We went to Chattanooga, TN for a long weekend. Since we have 4 kids, we never go anywhere. It's not that our families aren't willing to watch our kids, they just aren't able to. They all live in another state! So, with our 15 year anniversary approaching, we roped my folks into coming up for the weekend to babysit. The kids LOVED not being with us! Grandparents are just so much more fun. Anyhow, Joe didn't tell me where we were staying, I had to try and figure it out. Each week I asked a "yes" or "no" question. Finally after several months, I made the comment to him that of all the places I hoped we weren't going, I hoped it was not Chattanooga. Little did I know. It's not that I don't like it there, but we'd been there several years ago when my MIL came to babysit our 3 (at the time I was pregnant) kids. I just figured we would go someplace else. So, now my husband is in therapy! He's vowed never to plan anything else for us. However, we had a great time and he picked out the most beautiful place! See....




Our room and sitting area...





I ran around the hotel taking pictures of other rooms, too! The entire place was just gorgeous! Each room was a different color.



And just look what they left in a bowl in the hallways! Freshly baked chocolate chip cookies!! Naturally, I took a bunch home for the kids. Although I wish I knew that there were cameras in the hallway! They probably think I'm a huge pig and won't let me back!!



Anyhow, if you are looking for a nice romantic weekend away, Stone Fort Inn is definitely the place to go.

I think I'll stop here for tonight, or rather this morning! I promise to be back soon. Have a great day!!!
