This weekend has been fantastic and it’s all because after many years I had my two sons together. The older one moved to Kansas in 2011 and the younger one moved to Florida. The latter is back now for a few years but it’s been that long since the oldest came here.
The visit was courtesy of the military who sent my son and his wife to San Diego for a pre-deployment education weekend. So, the sad part is I won’t see him for over a year but for now I’m one happy mama!
Nothing topped being with both my kids but we got to go to dinner again with the visitors last night and had a good time. They then hit the downtown bars for some downtime.
One more pic of my sons with their significant others. I’m very blessed!
We also babysat our grandpuppy, Stella, for a couple of days while our future daughter-in-law went to new teacher training and my son was working.
She’s four months old and a bundle of energy. I could only get her still for a picture when she was resting!
The last highlight of the week (as if this wasn’t enough) was a fun evening with my book club. We had three first-timers this month and a great discussion about the book and life in general.
My burger with egg, bacon, and cheese was delicious!
