Family Rocks!

The majority of my family lives in Chicagoland.  I miss them like crazy.  For some crazy reason, I haven't been able to visit since March of 2009.  This week, I pulled my kids out of school and I headed out.  

You see, in a few weeks, my family and I will be heading out on our Big Fat Family Road Trip.  Being I just had a new-to-me engine put into my car, I decided I needed to have my dad's guys give it a once over before I headed cross-country.


Anystupidcar, yesterday afternoon, after a short visit with my super old gramma and lunch with my monsters and mom, I went to Baby Brother's house.  The monsters and I spent a few hours with Baby Brother, his wife Wonder Woman, and their four awesome boys!  My nephews are so much fun and I was so excited to play with them.

Today I spent the day with my "favorite" cousin, her three babies, my aunt, and my wanna be rockstar cousin.  It has been such an amazing day!  

As I sit here at the kitchen table in my dad's house, watching the thunderstorm brewing outside, I hear my kids laughing and enjoying time with their grandparents.  I am blessed.  I am happy.

So agree with you that family rocks. And it is hard when they are not in the same place as you.
