So far Jacob has been an angel. We left him with my parents last night before we headed off to a dinner with Craig's family where his dad and brother were honored for their involvement with the local VFW post. He was a delight, thank goodness. As we left he even told them that he wasn't going to cry. What a big, strong boy. Today has been much of the same. He was apparently good at church and has even been cooperative with going on the potty, which is great. See what I mean about a change of scenery being a good thing?
Hopefully we'll all appreciate each other that much more when we're reunited tomorrow afternoon. We're spending a night in a cheap hotel room I got via Travelocity's secret deals (you don't know your hotel until you book), at more than 50% off. We'll hit up a couple of our usual stops--IKEA among them--and head back for a little quality time with Jacob. I'm just hoping for a good night's sleep since we should, in theory, be able to sleep in. We always enjoy our time here, and while it was fun to include Jacob last time (and I feel a little guilty about being in one of his favorite places without him), it's nice to have it be just the two of us for a little bit. It always brings back good memories, and it's a good opportunity to do some advance shopping for Jacob's birthday or other milestones--be it at IKEA, the Hockey Hall of Fame, or Chapters book store, where I'm once again going on a hunt for a new Brady Brady book.
Well, it's late int he Knighthawks game and despite a much better second half effort, it looks like the season is going to come to an end tonight. As always, that's good news-bad news around our house. Good to have Craig around (although most likely he's working the summer season for a team in Hamilton, which is starting soon enough), sad that the season didn't end well, and back to the refrain that the Knighthawks season starts "after Christmas". Seems like we were just saying that, and Jacob's already been back at it since the last home game a few weeks ago.
Well, for now I'll leave you with a couple pics from the weekend...first, my Mother's Day present...
|We got a Christmas present a couple years ago with the same verse. This one is much cuter, other than the fact that the Christmas gift featured Jacob's adorable face.|
|He was playing with my dad's lighted magnifying glass, looking at his hand. Couldn't resist the smile!|
