It's been 5 months, 3 weeks, and 5 hours since we took off on our adventure to the Prairies. and it's now hitting home. Mom and Dad's for dinner isn't just a drive away, the In-laws for Friday night Chinese food isn't as accessible.. Life is moving on and we are miles away.
I had the pleasure of hosting my Mommy for 2 whole entire glorious weeks back in October! She really is THE BEST. Not being here even 24 hours, she was already in her painting clothes creating beauty and comfort in my home, cooking up a storm in my kitchen and getting the little things for my girls and I didn't have to lift a finger.. - and then..... I fell off our deck, snapped some ligaments and tendons and the hubs had to rush me to the hospital..so yah, Mom - you came at the perfect time.. No, it truly is amazing having your mommy come from across the country and you get to spend some good quality time, we got to hit up Edmonton both for the first time - HELLO WEST EDMONTON MALL!
|This is where we spent our afternoon.. Best.Pool.EVER|
And We got to see a pretty wicked sealion show and Reese got a special Kiss ;)
If you've never visited the most amazing mall of all time.. you have to visit the most amazing mall of all time! and you will all be shocked to hear, although I was in the WEM for over 4 hours I did not shop in a single store! This was all about a girls trip with me, my mom and my girls.. worth every penny and enjoyed every moment! Memories that will never be erased.
I so enjoyed having you here mom, and miss you everyday - you have instilled amazing things into me as a mother, You and Dad always put God first, and made music important - getting messy was okay, and leaving the dishes until tomorrow because us kids wanted to play a game wasn't a crime. Thank you for continuing to be such an awesome mommy.. Love you, and Miss you xo
Being far from home is hard. But taking in this journey is a once in a life time. For the first time in 24 years I didn't have to set my clock back.. but what's even better is I don't have to set my clock AHEAD in 6 months time, yahoo! Nope - No Daylight savings in this province.. And although my mornings will probably start at 10AM and end at 4:30PM we will soak in this ride. Weather Temps are dropping.. Hub's is finishing up the last of the deck, and my daddio flys in on Monday night! Like I said we have kept busy..
This is probably one of the most boring posts Ive ever written - but its almost midnight here and I have been staring at a computer screen since 6pm editing photos! my brain is fried! Next post will be killer I swear ;)
Have a great weekend everybody :)
