Sunshine Sunday - space, overcoming, and my man

Well, we're back from our trip.  I'll give you the full recap tomorrow, but it definitely made me very thankful for certain things.  I am grateful that we don't all sleep together in one tiny room.  

One thing I really enjoyed this week was helping Baden overcome some fears.  Baden is naturally afraid of many things.  See how he has my husband's face clutched in his hands?  He doesn't like being up high.  He got the chance to overcome a lot of things this week and it was fun to watch.

I was SO grateful for my husband on our trip.  We helped each other NOT kill our kids this week.  It was nice to have someone to laugh with during the frustration.  I am grateful for a sense of humor....or we might not have survived our trip :)

The boys absolutely adore him and that makes me immensely happy.

We got everything unpacked and cleaned up yesterday.  It's good to be home.  

Thanks for reading.


  1. You definitely have to take a lot of bad with the good when taking a trip with little ones. I think by the end of every trip we've had, I've been chanting "never again." But it seems the good outweighs the bad because we always start planning our next adventure as soon as we get home. =)

  2. Welcome home! Your sis did such an awesome job while you were gone :)

    Traveling with young kids is exhausting for sure! We've had to do 2 cross country moves with our boys and each time I just want to lay on the floor and kick and scream ;)

  3. Glad you had fun!! Trips with kids ate HARD....but so worth it in the end! Can't wait to hear more!! :))

  4. Your pictures are awesome, I know what you mean about vacation with the kids, we went to Florida last April vacation, we drove it was hard. But now we look back and laugh at all the "small things" I hope your son is doing better with his fears.
    Have a great day :)

  5. HAHA!!! I am sorry for laughing but I so know how you feel. My husband always seem to grow closer on vacations because its like its us against them. Them by the end we end up all being so bonded because of the good times, the bad times, and the memories. Love your pictures. The boys are so dang cute.

  6. I can't wait to hear all about your trip! It is way easier to laugh about the frustrations with your husband there, isn't it?

  7. Omg, seeing BAden clutching his dad's neck is like seeing my son. He will be 3 on Wednesday, and he too is, for some reason, a frightened little boy. Very causcious of everything. I thought all kids were just fearless...but no:)

  8. Really, the small cabin with my whole family smooshed together is one of my favorite parts of cruising! We had another little one and had to book two cabins for our upcoming cruise. Not loving it but my older girls are lobbying to get their own cabin. Not surehow I feel about that.

  9. ha ha, welcome back Cheri! I think fear is Nature's great way of keeping us safe, so that's a good thing right? Holidays certainly make you appreciate what you have at home! Can't wait to hear of your adventure.

  10. So I had to smile when I saw you were taking kids on a cruise, only because a friend of mine took their two little boys on a cruise and said it was not fun!!! They vowed never again to take kids on a cruise!

  11. Cheri, Glad you were able to get away! Thanks for the great blog. I don't comment enough, but I look forward to seeing your entries in my blog reader. Have a great Monday.

  12. Darling pictures. I too adore my husband. It sure makes life better with a great man doesn't it? :)

  13. I love that Man too! :)
    He's pretty darn good lookin'.
    The fact that he can still scowl like when he was 2 is amazing.
