We are having a blast at the lake house this summer! We are one week in and have just under a week left. We have done everything from swim in the pool, swim in the lake, bonfire, tubing, water skiing, cooking, walks, water balloons, naps in the sun, staying up all night with a crying Logan, enjoying some adult beverages, playing video games with Jaden …. anything I’m missing? Probably.
The babies have been a handful to say the least … up from midnight to 4am almost every night. Last night was the first night that Logan only got up once for a bottle then slept til around 6am.
There are times that I think “thank goodness we only have 2 babies … could you imagine three like this?” Disgusting. I didn’t serve to have triplets with thoughts like that. I deserve this pain, this loss. I didn’t deserve such a blessing if I can be thankful for it to be taken away. This thought invades my day, springs into my thoughts at the least expected time. I try to push it out … try not to believe it or let it take over. But it’s there … with it’s own time and strength.
I find joy in playing with Jaden, jumping into the pool. Logan loves the pool ans splashes and jumps. Weston? You put him in his floaty and he pretty falls asleep instantly. We’ve taken the babies swimming a few times, and every time Weston falls asleep almost immediately.
Pictures always say a thousand words … and I have a thousand photos! Here are a few of my favorites.
Had a play date at the lake house! I have Weston, Rachael has Logan and a good friend Moushira has her daughter Layla. Just so you know boys … she has already been promised to Logan … just in case you were wondering! Anyone notice the themed hats? Lighting McQueen and Tow Mater?
My favorite part about this vacation is being with family. We are all living all over each other like we were at mom’s after Owen died. All under the same roof, eating meals together, helping out. I’ve laughed really hard. It’s been a great relaxation. I have a feeling it’s going to be over way too soon!
