Well I took a week off from the blog while I was busy with family stuff.   The boys and I headed up to Dallas on our own over the weekend just to spend some time with my family.  Matt joined us Monday night after work.  I was a WEE bit anxious about driving all the way up to Dallas on my own with the boys but they actually did great.  Believe it or not, we did not make ONE stop the whole way up there!  I kept asking Z if he needed to potty but he was good, woohoo!

It was a very bittersweet reunion.  All 6 grandkids were able to make it in to town which I think was awesome, but still a bummer having it be for the reason it was.  We all vowed to not let this much time go between visits and have a Wells family reunion in the planning stages.

My very sweet friend, Ginny, who lives in the Dallas area actually ended up coming to the funeral.  Something about seeing a real familiar face really helps. It meant so much that she took that time out of her day to be there for me and my family.  I truly am blessed by a great friend!  Even better, after the services, she met us over at my aunt & uncle's house with her daughter, P, who is just 6 weeks younger than Z.  I think it was the first time we all really had a decent break all week!  Z and P and Markey palled around so well together and it is, as always, so fun to see your children playing with your friends' children! :)

Everything was beautiful and it really was a great celebration of my Grammy's life!  She will truly be missed!!

On a very aside note...on Monday for a break we went to my cousin's Bridal Shop to visit her.  There happened to be a bride to be trying on dresses and Z was enamored with her!  He told me she was a "princess" which of course got tons of awwws from all us women.  When she came back with "the one" dress on, he told her she looked SO pretty....and that he was the King!  I think Sarah needs to hire him to be a ringer, how could she not be sold on the dress after that?? :)

I have rambled enough.  We had a very chill and much needed weekend at home.  I was sad to have to cancel a visit to Austin and to Caleb's 1st birthday party, but I know when my boys both sleep till almost 9am on Saturday AND sunday....we had some tired critters!

I got a lot of Easter decorating done and made TWO wreaths today so I will have to share soon.  Wish me luck....we have Zach's 1st dentist appointment tomorrow morning.  YIKES! :)

Hope you all have a wonderful week!!
