As my SIL, Chris would say, "Good Night Nurse!" it's been insane around here. A week with Sarah, Chris and the kids, then a week in Mexico, then a week with Sarah and the kids, and tomorrow morning I join Sarah and the kiddos to fly to Texas, via a layover in Charlotte because we just like to make it as much fun as possible. It's been CRAZY, messy, noisy, irritating at times, so endearing at times, laughable, grace-stretching, the emotions have run the gamut. I'm tired, we're all tired, but I wouldn't have missed a minute of it. Even the baby toothpaste smeared on the walls going upstairs is a bit touching to think about, and having a little person scribble on the kitchen walls and upstairs door - well, that's pretty sweet too especially since they make Magic Eraser!

So a few photos of the past few weeks with a house busting at the seams:

Papa and Landon check out the elephants spraying water at the Pittsburgh Zoo

Two pretty mommys with sweet Miss Addison wedged in-between. Sweet stuff!

Our feet hurt after walking 1 1/2 miles to see the new baby colts. Someone lost a shoe on the trip and we were darned happy to find it on the way back. How can you not love that smushed up face?
After a long walk we were all too tired to even cook corndogs, so we ran to Bob Evans, and they let us eat there, in spite of how dirty we all were. The kids ate every single bite of their supper. I hope these little boys always like me this much.

This one? Priceless - all four of our grandchildren together in one place. Well worth the admission cost to spend the day at the zoo with them. I absolutely will be framing this for my desk.

In about nine hours we'll be climbing in the car (actually two) to head to the airport, and I'll be back home in about a week. Within a few days the house will be clean, neat, quiet, and that will feel nice I'm sure. I'm also confident I'll be just a bit sad, washing that baby toothpaste off those walls, remembering how sweet it was to have them all here with us. Back in a week, to give away those books, share photos of Mexico, and also buy a new computer. This Dell laptop is giving lots of warning signs it's about to die. Soooooooooo, anyone have an opinion on whether to make the switch to a Mac? Sarah and Pace say yes, Don isn't at all sure. What do you think? I'd appreciate any opinions because I absolutely hate buying a new computer, and this one should have held up better than it did. I'm going with a desktop this time, but I just don't know about whether to go Mac or not. Help please!
