Back from the USA

5 Mar

Again, here I am talking how it’s been forever since I’ve blogged…yada yada yada.

Anyhow, we are back from an amazing time in the US.  We left on Valentine’s Day and returned March 1st.  Overall the two VERY long travel days were good, especially since our 8 hour flight to the US took 11 hours due to weather patterns.


The boys passed out on the way to our parents after the long plane ride

We arrived Friday evening and boys were so excited to see the grandparents…as were we!  My mom was the only grandparent that had met Anna so she got lots of lovin 🙂  We enjoyed the weekend relaxing and playing with the boys and on Sunday evening Henry, Anna and I headed down to Haverford to spend some time with Henry’s brother, his wife Asia and their adorable little girl Isabella.  The guys built an enormous fire and we enjoyed dinner together while the girls slept peacefully.

We had a 7:50am flight to Miami Monday morning.  We arrived in sunny Miami around 11 and thoroughly enjoyed the much needed warmth and sunshine.  Henry had meetings Wednesday-Friday and I decided to tag along with Anna for a mini vaca.  Monday and Tuesday Henry and I were able to enjoy ourselves and the quiet.  We love our boys to death, but with the 3 kiddos it’s definitely harder to spend quality time just the hubby and I.  Anna was a superstar the entire week; sleeping poolside while we enjoyed our UV rays, sleeping in the baby bjorn during dinner and keeping up her usual routine of sleeping from 9-6am.  We are blessed with such a happy, sweet baby.

Wednesday and Thursday, Anna and I enjoyed our morning walks along the water and just relaxing by the pool.  She was so happy to be in the warm weather.  Wednesday evening we joined daddy for dinner with his team from Latin America.  Anna slept the entire dinner despite all the noise.  Thursday we went with daddy to his happy hour and then Anna and I went back to the hotel room and ordered room service and watched tv, our first of many girls night…even if she slept 🙂


He’s so in love with Anna

Friday was our anniversary and Henry had meetings in the morning.  He finished early around 2 and we went for a long walk along the water, it was a balmy 85 degrees and we were loving every minute of it.  That evening we went out to dinner in South Beach and it was amazing.  We were able to go nice and early and enjoy the sunset.


5 year and 3 babies later, we couldn’t be more in love




Daddy’s girls

Friday was an early night since we were catching the first flight out in the morning.

We arrived home around noon on Saturday and spent some quality time with the family.

Sunday was another big day, Anna was baptized.  We had her baptized at St. Lawrence, the same church Henry was baptized at 44 years ago.  We had Henry’s sister Mary as the Godmother and our good friend/Henry’s co-worker Joseph from Louisiana as the Godfather.  It was a beautiful day for a baptism and Anna did great.

Ok that’s it for now, time to get a little rest since Thomas is still dealing with jet lag and was up until midnight last night.

More to come…
