Honey, I'm home!

Off to Grita's

We tip toed out of Grita's house at 4:45a on Monday morning and tip toed back in at 11:00p Friday night. That was a long time to be away from Campbell, but I think I did pretty well. I only called a couple of times each day. And, I tried not to bring her up to every stranger we met... not sure how I fared on that one. Alan and I had a wonderful trip to Sarasota. Weather was great. Town was lovely. Beaches were spectacular. Anniversary #7 was a success!

Lido Beach, Sarasota

It took roughly twenty years, but for the first time I came home from a trip to the beach withOUT a sunburn. Yes, you read correctly: Renee tanned responsibly. Seriously, not even slightly pink shoulders, no peeling nose or forehead- zilch. My lips didn't even get chapped. How depressing- I think I may actually be growing up.

As for Campbell, you'll have to pop over to Opal's blog to get the details on her vacation. But from what I can tell, she loved every minute of her trip. I am quite certain that I will never find out how much cookie dough she actually consumed or how much tea and coke she drank but at least she got her daily nap. Rumor has it that she loved the afternoon on the Slip-n-Slide and that she held court with the miniature dachshunds a couple of times....

As for now, we are all back in Cedar Park. Safe and sound.
Much love~
Campbell's Mom

P.S. I am fairly sure she didn't have shoes for a solid week as she will not keep them on now, period. Oh well, it is summer.

We had LOTS of fun. We are missing her already. And she cannot stay caffeine free forever :) And you know us country mice don't like to wear shoes when we don't have to :)

Can't wait for you to repay the favor and keep Opal! Fun fun fun!!!!

I told you before you left...what happens at Gritas stays at Gritas. hahaha We had lots of fun and even returned her the way we got her as requested by Alan. :-) One thing for sure she was showered with love 24/7. I cant wait to do it again.

Happy to hear you survived & had fun all at the same time...funny thing is from here on out, leaving gets easier each & every time! Checked out Opals blog for some more vacation pics and I have to admit it looks like Grita & Hooterbox know how to keep a kid happy w/ all their Weathersby love :)
Hope you have settled back into mommy life,
ps: love Campbell & Ainzley's newly decorated blogs!
