We enjoyed our stay at Sammy's Godmother's place, though the visits are never as relaxing and stress free as before we had the kids. At any given time one of the kids was crying or they are fighting with each other. Welcome to the vacation of a parent, right!? hehehe Regardless, everyone had a great time. We had a fire down by the creek and Anthony helped start it and tend to it. That was exciting! He had so much fun and it was hilarious watching Mike turn his back and there goes Anthony throwing more leaves or twigs in. Molly was a sick little cuddle bug on her Papa's lap after wanting off of my lap, haha. Friday and Saturday Sam and I were able to leave Anthony for a few hours and just take Molly to a few stores with us. At night when the kids were put to bed Sammy and I slipped off to the hot tub to soak and stare up at the stars. It was so cold out we didn't want to ever get out.
We headed home on Sunday and decided to take a different, longer way home so we could go to Cabelas. If we had known the stress that layed ahead, I'm sure we would have chosen differently! Anthony flipped out when we went to the toy section and then left it without a toy in hand. He had a complete meltdown that had the whole dang store rubbernecking. Molly wouldn't have been happy even if I had presented her with a pony and a lifetime supply of chocolate. We rushed through the store and were completely unsatisfied with our first Cabelas experience (though we did manage to buy a Wii game and gun for Cabela's Big Game Hunt, yay!). Shortly after getting back on the road we were almost sideswiped my a car and promptly after I told Sam, "Please don't let us die today, I don't want my last memory to be wanting to strangle my children at Cabelas!" I looked back to see Anthony and Molly asleep in their seats looking sweet as pie. Sammy and I scarfed down gummy bears while I played DJ with our CD's and we were able to relax a bit. *sigh* My silly kiddos, how boring would my life be without them? The sweet joys of Mamahood.
With love,Mama Hauck
