Thank you to those that prayed for Katie. As you can see from the posts she is doing great. I am truly in awe of her healing and the amazing surgery that took place. This is a picture she put on her Facebook wall so as you can see...major surgery...major incision...and still a lot of healing that needs to take place. Please remember to keep her in your prayers.
My family is also on the mend. Both boys have turned the sickness corner and are starting to rebound. We are sleeping through the night again and returning to normal. Thank you so much for the prayers this weekend and sweet commments. I really appreciated all of them.
A little recap now of the last few days. After we dropped David off at the airport on Friday afternoon we had a mommy/sons date at a pizza parlor and ice cream shop.
They looked very sweet and calm in these pictures but unfortunately when we returned home is when the poop hit the fan. It was major meltdown at my house before bedtime. Lots of tears, fights, and tantrums about missing daddy. I might have texted my husband a few times that I hoped he was having a good time (obviously sarcastically).
Majority of Saturday mornings I have the pleasure of running my long runs with friends without kids. My husband is a trooper and loves having Saturday mornings with the boys so it works out well for both of us. Unfortunately this Saturday I didn't have backup so the boys went along for the run. I was not prepared and the run ended up being terrible. Praise the Lord for good friends who are prepared and bailed us out of a terrible situation. We were 4 miles from home when Miller lost it...hysterically crying and I had no money, no T card, no snacks. Thankfully Audra had all of the above so instead of trying to run home we just hopped on the T and cut our long run short. I am thankful for mommy friends who just know that sometimes you just roll with the punches. Audra took this picture on the subway as I was wrangling two crazy boys. Motherhood is humbling to say the least.
My mom made it in Saturday afternoon so the boys have loved having an extra playmate around. My brother also took the night bus over from NYC and made it to our apartment before 8:00 am this morning. Such a treat to see him. Uncle Toph needed a bandaid so obviously both boys wanted a bandaid as well.
It's a beautiful day in Boston so we decided to head to Charlestown and check out the USS Constitution and Defender. The boys have been into pirate ships lately so even though the Constitution is not a pirate ship, it looks like one to a 3 year old.
We then headed over to the Defender and took a tour of the ship that fought in WWII.
We then had lunch at a fun little cafe/bakery that my friend Lauren had told us about. They lived in Charlestown for 1 year when Jeff was completing his fellowship so it was fun to finally try out one of their favorite eating spots.
After lunch we treated the boys to another round of ice cream. I know...I know...more ice cream. This was 3 days apart. What can I say...we all love ice cream.
Thankful for the beautiful day and beautiful weather in Boston!
