I miss Patrick...

Well, house plans aren't going quite according to MY plan, but hopefully we will still be moving soon.  I am tired of living in two places.  Adeline and I are driving south to spend the weekend, but we are coming back on Tuesday to be here for Lisa's birthday.  It has been so nice to be here with my parents, close to family and friends, but I am ready to settle into my own place again...with my stuff, and a place to put everything.  My parents have been very gracious about the mess we've created from toys, papers, and piles that don't really have a home here.

Since I am thinking about my sweetie a lot these days, I thought I would finally post this day of summer fun we had while he was living here.  I love you, Pat, and can't wait to see you in a few hours!  
The Playground...

                                                   

               
The ultra cool (FREE!!!) petting zoo at the park.  Adeline chased a chicken for the longest time while Patrick and I cracked up as she ran screaming "aye, aye" (which is her word for wanting to gently pet a furry or apparently feathered friend).  The chicken would let her get within two feet before scrambling a little farther out of reach.  Wish we had a video...

I can only imagine how hard it is to be separated and living in 2 places. Hope you get settled soon!

Adeline is getting so big in just the few weeks I've been gone! I should be back on skype in about a week if all goes according to plan!

I'm praying for you...with your house situation. I can certainly identify with the "my plan" scenario...and things not working out just as I'd planned. I know that God has HIS best for you! Praying!

I'm SO happy for you that you'll get to be with Patrick, again. And, I'll be rejoicing with you when I hear that you're finally settled in your new home!

Love to you!

I can relate to the wanting to settle down and missing the hubby parts. *sigh* We're hoping we get to see Joel in December...and then it'll only be 5.5 more months until we can settle down...I think. :P

Fun pics at the park - how sad is it that we live 5 minutes from that park and have never visited the petting zoo?

Hope you soon get settled in your new house - I can't wait to hear details! I wasn't sure where to call you at - your parents or your cell (if the number's even the same as before). E-mail me and let me know where you're at!

I hope you had a great visit with Patrick. I am praying for you with the house situation.

I loved all your pictures - that petting zoo looks awesome!

Ugh - I can't imagine having to feel separated yet again. Praying that all is resolved for you soon! Great pics of the fam!
