>So I totally slacked on updating this blog while we were away the past two weeks. I have to say, I really don’t have too much to add on the fitness front, but I can talk about our trip!
Andy, Dylan, and I traveled back east with our dog Rue so that I could be a bridesmaid in a close friend’s wedding which was in the Philadelphia vicinity. We decided to come two weeks early so we could spend Easter with our families and show off Dylan to as many family and friends as possible. That was both the best idea and worst idea ever! Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely LOVE both of our families, but two weeks is a long time to be away from home (baby or no baby).
There’s really not much to say as far as it being a bad idea besides that it was just a long time not to have our own space. As far as it being a great idea: It was so great to see everyone and really fun to introduce our little bundle! It was also really nice to be able to leave Dylan with family when we had wedding events to attend!
It also made me really homesick, which is crazy considering I insisted I would never even consider leaving this state for the past two years. But something has changed now that Dylan has entered our lives… it’s no longer just Andy and my story, we’re sharing it with our son now and when I think about him growing up so far away from his grandmas, grandpas, and uncles (and maybe his Aunt Heidi who is planning on moving back), it makes me really sad! I grew up 30 minutes from one set of grandparents and and about 2 hours from two sets of aunts which meant random weekends and every holiday I was spoiled with gifts and attention from them!
Well anyway, so we’re back home and it’s a little bittersweet… but now I’m excited to start establishing a daily schedule and building our life as a family!
