Normally my pictures are just there when I go to "From My Phone"... but they aren't! Hm... I'll have to try to figure that out.
But in the mean time, we went to NJ last week. And by we, I mean me and Eliza! It was so great. Aaron stayed home with the older three, and I hopped on a plane with my baby and flew back to NJ.
As usual it was great to see my family and Eliza was just so great. She made them all laugh with her funky crawl, and head bobble, and fake cough. I got to relax and eat way too much delicious food.
Flying out was frustrating, with delays and missed connections, but after 12 hours of traveling we finally made it. Coming home was less eventful.
One of the highlights of the trip for me was getting to go into the city with my best friend of almost 20 years! We just walked around, ate delicious food (seeing a pattern here?) and saw a show on Broadway. We haven't done something, just the two of us in a decade! It really fed my soul.
Also got to spend a lot of time with my grandmother, which was great. And we had a cousin dinner which was also super fun. My last day my mom took off and we went and got massages, and out to lunch and bought make up.
And I have to give a shout out to my amazing husband. I feel so incredibly lucky to be married to such an awesome man. He didn't complain once, the entire time I was gone. I came home to a clean house, and happy kids. I was off gallivanting around NJ and he was home dealing with tantrums, homework, and dishes. This trip was for my thirtieth birthday, a few weeks early. A month long celebration seems a bit much, but I'm definitely not complaining. So grateful for this wonderful life!
