Just look at that little face! It's like you can hear him saying "No Aubee. Don't leave me! I hate it when you go!" These weekend trips to Arizona are seriously the BEST and WORST things in the whole world. I mean, I absolutely love that my little man is only a 6 hour drive away, but when it comes time to drive back home, I just don't wanna go!!! And trust me, he hates it just as much as I do.
Luckily I had 2 full days to spend with my munchkin, most of which was spent helping his Mommy & Daddy get settled into their new house! Oh yeah, did I tell you? My sister and brother-in-law bought their first house in Gilbert, AZ. It's beautiful! Or will be, as soon as they finish updating everything. It's got 3 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths and a loft. Every time Little D walks in the "guest room" he calls out "Aubee, Aubee, Aubee!" He knows whose room it really is! That's my boy!
Aren't these pictures hilarious? Dallen is always trying to do "grown-up stuff" and help his Mommy and Daddy with everything and anything. He saw his Mommy reaching into the cupboards to clean out all the crud and so he climbed on in and went right to work.
While there was lots of work to be done, we took a few breaks to play in their pool. Oh yeah, they have a pool in their backyard too! In Arizona, a pool is a MUST if you plan to survive the summer!
Don't you just love that sweet little face? I swear, the minute I leave I'm already planning my next trip back to see him. Maybe one day I'll turn that "guest room" into my permanent residence. OH! the thought makes my heart swell.
