"There's no place like Home"

The ladies telling Nana and Papa bye at the airport, as we arrived... the boys were at school :(

*story about the monkeys: the girls favorite show right now is Zomabafoo, that is what they asked for when we came back....

One of the times I called home, this is what my mom said to us... and she was right! We are blessed and thankful for the alone time and to be "us" but we began missing team cooper so bad... we even laughed at ourselves! We have become "those" parents and decided we are so ok with that :) we are also soooo very grateful to my parents aka Nana and Papa, for caring for our kids... to know they are ok while we are away is so peaceful! Thanks guys!

Such a sweet picture, Jody!! Jonah LOVES that show too!! =)

We are THOSE parents, too - haha... sometimes you just can't help missing them even though you need the alone time.

Glad you are back home safe and sound - I missed you!!!
