Nana and Papa Visit

2 posts in 1 day?! This is for, Karen G! :)  

You're probably wondering how we were able to do that whole holiday party thing and that was thanks to Brian's awesome parents, or as we call them, Nana and Papa. They left work on Thursday and drove all the way here super late so that I could go set up and do everything I needed to do on Friday. A big super duper thanks to them!! The kids had a great time and I didn't worry for even 1 second because I knew they were in great hands.  And it was so nice to be around other adults and to have a night out the two of us.

I was nervous things weren't going to work out though.  On New Year's Day Brady started screaming in the middle of the night. I went to check on him and he kept telling me his tummy hurt. NO!  He ended up throwing up that night, and then throwing up the whole next day. I was so sad for my baby but at the same time worried because of the holiday party. I was terrified I would get sick and that would really make is stressful for other people! Luckily, Brady was the only one who got sick so things were able to go on as planned.

Brian and I got home from the hotel at about 10:30 and we were exhausted. My body just automatically wakes me up in the 8:00 hour if I have kids with me or not.  And it was not an early night! So we had a nice breakfast there and then headed home to our babies. It was really cold out so we just hung around the house.

While the babies (and I) napped, Brian and his parents went to a local brewery, Lucky Bucket.  Brian wasn't thrilled with the idea initially, but after a bloody mary, felt much better! ;)

That evening we also went out to go look at cameras and had dinner at Smashburger.

Which Layla devoured.

Why does everyone give me dirty looks? Just trying to capture some moments!

All in all, a great weekend and we are so thankful they were able to make the trip!

Hhahaha... "Why does everyone give me dirty looks? Just trying to capture the moment"! They will appreciate us one day when they are older and want to look back on their childhood... And he have 9,098,091 pictures of them! Sounds like you guys had a great time!!!

I figured you had someone to help you out, and that you didn't just lock your kids in the hotel room. Haha :) It was so nice of them to make a trip to help you! :)

This is the second post I've read today about Smashburger. We don't have those around here. Am I missing out??
