If Heaven is anything like the last several days I’ve spent, with my family, I can’t wait. I wish I could bottle these times up, so I could drink them in anytime I wanted to.

We had family and friends over for burgers, brats, and hotdogs. Adam did a perfect job grilling them. We had some cucumbers soaked in vinegar, water, and onion. Jackie made some asparagus with lemon pepper and olive oil. We had macaroni salad. Jackie’s sister brought chips. I’m stuffed.

We played a few games of cornhole. Jackie, Justin, my sister, and her husband just left. They’re going bowling. We’re babysitting Pj. I held her, as we walked circles around the house. She fell asleep. Now Adam’s snuggling her.


Adam is working tomorrow, but nobody else has to get up for work or school. It has been such a fun weekend! I just bought a new pack and play crib, for the babies. We have Jackie’s niece and Pj over here so often, I decided I need to get one here. Adam was teasing me, because we donated our old one, right before we moved. I did not expect my sister to be having any babies, though! I just bought Pj a new bottle. She’s breastfed, so it can be a challenge to get her to drink from a bottle. I’d noticed, when we’ve had her, she might like a wider bottle neck. I spent about 45 minutes researching, and came up with one I thought she might like. It’s called “Comotomo”. We tried it, the other day, when my sister was here with her. She actually took right to it! I told Adam about how I’d got it for her. He’s always so fine with buying things for the kids and babies. He even turns the thermostat up, when the babies are here. If Jackie’s niece or Pj is here, he’ll quietly turn the heat up, for them.

I suppose I should get the kitchen cleaned up. I have a feeling we’re going to be ready for bed early, tonight. It’s bittersweet, having this weekend come to its end.
