Postcard from the Coast - Travels with Jazmyn

"I'm home!" (in an excited Jazzy voice)

Dear Mari,
It is so quiet around the house - almost boring. I have no idea what we used to do with all of our time before the little ones joined us. I woke up last week, went into the babies' room and...
empty cribs:( babies:(

Right now, it's Jaz and I and she has been doing enough crying to make up for the babies being gone. I'm pretty sure she misses them, but we are getting some bonding time.
On the way down to G-town (yes, taken while driving)

I loaded up the surfboard with Jaz in the back and headed to Galveston for the weekend. I spent some time with my mom and mema and pepa, which was nice. It was a gorgeous weekend down there. I love this time of year on the island with all the people buzzing around and all the energy - it is refreshing. Mom and I took Jaz for a stroll on the beach and for a little dip in the Gulf. The water was nice and warm, a little rough, but perfect. When I see you next, my face will be extra soft and smooth from the facial I got walking down the seawall - with all the wind blowing the sand my face got "sandblasted".

I saved you a seat

Saturday I hung out with Todd. We spent some time crying on each other's shoulder since our honeys were out of town. Once we got the tears out, we headed to Yaga's for a birthday party and to enjoy the Strand nightlife - it sure has been a while! The next morning I woke to the sound of seagulls and swaying palms at Casa de Todd. We picked up a Bronco Burrito from the Donut Shoppe and spent the afternoon boating and playing water volleyball at the "sandbar". There is just something about being on the water - I can't explain it but I think you understand.
I need another set of feet (yours of course!)

Todd and I diggin' "the sandbar"

"Do we have to leave?" (said in a whimpering Jazzy voice)

I had a great time but it wasn't the same without you; it's not the same coming home to an empty house. I miss you and the babies greatly - only 2 weeks until I can join you!

Looks like it's been pretty rough around there for you! ;) Hope you are enjoying some much deserved R&R! Give Jaz a big tug on her ears and tail from all of the babies and a big hug from me. Lots of love to you, sweetheart! Mari

I thought I had a great hubby but yours tops the cake! One that add's to your blog & takes pictures too! I think it's AWESOME! We have 18 month old GBGG quads & I do not even think my hubby would try to attempt it! He leaves the blogging to me. I am going to have to show him what other quad daddy's can do! (=
