Winding Down

It looks like our summer travels are winding down, and boy did I end it with a bang!

Last week, 3 girlfriends and myself flew to Orlando for the annual MOPS convention. Now, we really love MOPS. But even more, we love girlfriend time at an awesome hotel. We had a fantastic and relaxing trip. While I do not have many photos to show for it (or at least photos that I can publish on my blog), I do have super special memories.

The long weekend included lunch at Wolfgang Puck's, coffee all day long, late night pillow talk, an absolutely fabulous dinner that cost more than Caleb's birth, and an evening swim in the resort's pool (in our clothes). Ha! I felt like I was 18 again.

(the scene of the crime)

The conference workshops were great. I met Bob the tomato (literally). The creator of Veggie Tales spoke on Kids and the Media. He was so informative, but I had a hard time not laughing since he is also the voice of Bob the tomato, Junior Asparagus, and the pirates.

Major love to my super sweet hubby for willingly keeping the kiddies. He was actually looking forward to the extra time with them, which made my heart happy. And the kids did a fabulous job of showing him just how hard my workdays actually are. Thanks guys!

We are getting together with some very special friends next weekend. More on that later.

But in the meantime, I thought I would leave you with some Eveley-isms. Don't want to ever forget these!

* While looking through the advertisements in the Sunday paper, Eveley said: "Please mom. Please. Can we please go to Chucky Jesus?" Umm...

* She also thinks that each morning, I watch "Jesus and Kelly." At least she has Jesus on the brain!

* Eveley believes the correct word is "lasterday" or "lastertime". She will say, "Remember last-er-night when I was a little boy?" Weird on so many levels.

Many more to come...
