A wonderful weekend

Well this weekend Me and Brendan decided to get away for some "alone" time, so we headed for the Marriot Resort and Spa in Florence. It was fabulous!!!! We laid out by the pool, order room service... lots of room service, and ate like there was no tomorrow! It was so nice - we seem to be getting away most weekends and we are kinda starting to get use to it =) Nothing like alot of vacations!
Sweet Jack spent his very first night with uncle jay jay and aunt Lissie. Jason has been begging to keep jack since the day he was born, so we finally took him up on the offer and I think they all had a great time! We did miss him dearly and worried about him ( and left jason a 2 page paper on how to take care of him =). Me and Brendan are trying to loosen are grip just a little bit, but we love him so much that leaving him is like leaving a part of us.
Our house is about to be turned upside down due to major renovations and an addition so things are starting to get a little crazy. So after some workers left today me and Jack decided to go to Toys-r-us and spend his gift certificate that his aunt Holly got him for his birthday ( thanks Aunt Holly=). Well instead of a small toy, Jack picked a train set that he wanted, so with a sweet convincing smile he talked me into it. So I got him a starter train set that I guess when can add to as we go. After that we got a milkshake and Jack took the lid off and before I could help put it back on the milkshake ended up in his lap.. and everywhere else. It looked like the biggest mess, but I had to smile! Thank you Lord that in the middle of the day on a Wednesday I am able to buy a train set and share a milkshake with my son. Thank you for enabling me to be at home with him to share these moments...these messes!
