We have tickets!

 We had some really sweet visits with our family this summer.
Here is just a real quick peek...

We love California, but, we sure do miss Alabama.  And that is the #1 reason. 
While our parents were out here,
they played ball with the kids and watched them perform all their talents. 
We had cooked and ate meals together. 
And laughed.  
Nothing too spectacular, just sharing life together.
It was wonderful.

So, I guess I shouldn't have been surprised when after the last visit Trek starts talking non-stop about going on an airplane to Alabama.  I told him we have to have plane tickets to go.  The first thing he did when he got home from school that day was to make us all tickets. 
Completely by himself, he cut and colored each one of us a ticket.

"Now, can we go to Alabama?" he asked me.
What do you say to that?!

You say "yes" and get some real tickets to go back (thanks moms and dads for helping out :)
But now the problem is explaining to a 2 and 3 year old the concept of time.
Trek told his teacher that he wouldn't be at school next week because he was going to Alabama.
And Dylan is fussing because he can't go on the airplane right NOW.
We had to tell Dylan that the plane just isn't ready yet and Trek has to wait until after Halloween.
And we have this conversation daily.

Suffice it to say, we are all looking forward to our trip back to the heart of Dixie!


  1. Hurray, hurray!!!! Can't wait.
    I am so glad that Trek thought about making the tickets so y'all can come to visit.
