My little slice of Heaven

I don't know what it is about being at my parents house but it is truly a great escape for me. I am sure having my mom (and dad!) there to help with everything doesn't hurt but I swear its more than that!!! Who would've thought that Bentonville, AR could be such a vacation spot? As most of you know- relaxing isn't something I do that well and typically where I go, the anxiety goes with me. ..but the peace that my parents' house and backyard bring to me is always a good refresher for this worn out mom!! The girls had a great visit with Bob and Gigi- they both absolutely loved the pool- it is just about the cutest thing ever. The weather was great- we had some sun, some rain and even a beautiful day to go to the park! No matter how long I'm there it goes by too fast but I was ready to come home and see my husband.

Anna's first trip to the park- at least the first trip where she's awake!

* On a different note, I finally got all of the proofs back from the girls' pictures! I don't want to post everything here but if you want to see them, email me and I'd be happy to give you the info

So cute! I agree about the rest time. We're at my parents now and boy is it a reboot. So glad you are having fun!
