Bryan and I had this big plan to go on a romantic vacation for our 14th anniversary. At first it was going to be somewhere tropical, like the Bahamas. Well, after thinking it through we decided that it would be better to wait. Bailey's tuition was due and we are trying to save up money to buy a new house... So we thought maybe we could go to this really cool water park in Mississippi. But then, we couldn't get a reservation at the hotel that we wanted. We were determined to spend some time together ALONE, so we reserved a room downtown and planned a "staycation".

Strength and Loyalty...
Sense of humor, A playmate...
Kindness and Honor.
I am so grateful that my children are surrounded by men who possess these qualities.
Most of all, I am proud that they can see all of them in their own Daddy.Happy Father's Day to all of the Dads in my life. And thank you to my hubby for being the Father that I always dreamed of for my children.

Anyway, the kids loved making them, especially Bailey, she loves projects. :) Presley kept trying to eat the peanut butter which was grossing me out because it had dirt in it from the pine cone. I let them pick out where they wanted to hang them and then we sat back and waited for the birds.
We actually did get to see a few birds come and enjoy the food before the squirrels realized there was something new in the backyard. Bailey's was gone after a few hours, completely gone, pine cone and all! They were really upset at first, but I explained to them that the squirrels were hungry too. Anyway, Luke's was gone when we woke up the next day. That afternoon I heard him banging on the window. I went in there and he was yelling at a squirrel. He said "Hey! Squirrel! That's the bird's food!! Go away!!" It was hilarious. He was being so stern.
After the kids got over the fact that the squirrel was a thief, they did get some enjoyment from watching him try to get that last pine cone.

It seems like Bryan has been gone forever. Maybe it's because we are off our "school routine" or if it's because I know that he is going to be gone for 6 or so more hours this time. He had a busy schedule on this trip, so maybe it's because we haven't had many chances to talk on the phone. Whatever the reason, it sucks.
I usually only say nice things about Bry on special occasions. I don't want him to get a big head or anything. :) When he is home, we get on each others nerves. We pick on each other. We take each other for granted. Then he goes out of town.
I miss him being here to help me. I miss having him to pick on and to vent to. I miss his hugs and his foot massages. I miss the way I feel when I see him playing with our kids. I miss how we laugh at the same stuff. I miss sharing all of the sweet, funny and crazy things that our kids do. I miss sitting up watching t.v. together after the kids have all gone to bed. I miss how we can just sit together in comfortable silence. But most of all, I just miss my friend. Just having him here with me.
I can't wait for him to get home so I can go back to not liking him again. :)
