I had so much fun with my parents out here. It was great to see them, and I wish I could see them more often. Ryan loved having more people to play with and of course enjoyed all the toys they gave him. My dad kept busy doing lots of projects around the house. I don't know what I would have done without this visit. I was very sad to have to say goodbye. Now Ryan and I are back to being just the two of us. I miss my family, but Ryan is good company and keeps me smiling.

As you could probably tell from my last post, my parents were visiting for a long weekend. I stopped at the mall before picking them up at the airport. I had plans to go shopping and buy myself some cute clothes. Unfortunately I couldn't find a single thing I wanted. However, I did buy Ryan lots of cute clothes. (I'm crossing my fingers that he still fits in them when Pat returns.) Later in the weekend though, my mother and I went shopping, and I got a cute coat from Old Navy that I will wear for Pat's homecoming. (Homecoming will be in a cold hangar and then in a large tent, so instead of a cute outfit, a cute coat is better.) My mom bought Ryan a coat and wicked cute hat for winter too. I was even able to leave Ryan with my parents so that I could get a hair cut, and I'm pretty happy with the cut. So overall I got a lot done.
