...we had such a nice time.
Life is very different for me (and the kids) when we go home. And though I wish that things had worked out differently...they haven't.
I do know a few things:
- My parents are incredibly important to me.
- They both adore my children.
- And it is so important to me that they spend time together.
While I was a little bit nervous about staying with my mom at her new home with Richard, we had a great weekend.
I knew right away, once again, the hard choice was the right decision.

On the second day my Mom and Richard were
gullible brave enough to take the kids to the Battle Creek Zoo on their own. I was fortunate sorry to miss this trip and instead spent the afternoon sitting at the coffee house by myself...missing my cherubs.
|brushing and feeding the goats was one of the favorite activities of the day|

|the little one liked the sand as much as the fish|
|Richard must have baited the hooks more than fifty times.|
|Abbey was proud to have the biggest catch of the day.|
I can only imagine how much fun the children who owned this treasure had on this slide! There are three slides to race down...then, I imagine the end of the slide would vault them into the water.
There is a bucket attached to a rope to pull water up, to wet the slide...
|it took the both of them a VERY long time to heave and hoist up only a 1/2 a bucket of water!|
Thank you Richard (and Mom) for such a lovely morning of fishing!
