Long weekend

We went to Nashville this weekend to visit my BIL and his awesome clan. Jamie had the best time with his two cousins and as usual I got choked up yesterday as we were saying our goodbyes. As I was putting Jamie to bed Sunday he told me that his cousin M was his friend, and that she could come to our house and jump on his bed. That sounds like a great idea.

The ride home yesterday was mostly uneventful although Jamie lost it about halfway home. He finally fell asleep just outside Cincinnati and we both snoozed until MD pulled into our driveway. Still, I’m pooped, we have very little clean laundry – exacerbated by the fact that Jamie is growing out of his summer wardrobe at an alarming rate – and there’s very little food in the house.

I’m always a little sad when returning from a trip. It seems like you walk through the door of your home and time folds in on itself and all you have left of your adventure are a set of memories that feel further and further away every hour. At least this trip has left Jamie with new knowledge of a house in Nashville where the toys are plentiful and the playmates, friends for life. Cousins.

    Very sweet. I hope Jack has really fond memories of family when he’s older. Sadly, we don’t live near many relatives, but we visit as much as we can.

    Everytime I’m in Nashville no one EVER takes me out of Brentwood. BORING!
