What Could Be Better Than...

...a strawberry torte ice cream cake (thanks, Mom!) for my birthday?

Being able to share it with these little kiddos - 

...which was followed by a post-bedtime-mini-girls-night with my mom and sister-in-law, indulging in some chocolate mousse and mint chocolate brownies (thanks, Ashley!) while watching "What Not To Wear" and browsing on-demand exercise videos at commercials (haha!). Then we topped it off with an episode of "Parenthood" when my brother got home from teaching his class - much more fun to watch with my family. (You should hear us when we watch "The Bachelor".)

The one downfall to spending a whole week full of playtime, puppet shows, superheroes, the Muppet movie, new baby snuggles, and silly dance contests with half of our favorite people?

Having to say good-bye. (geez...tears are flowing just typing that.)

We sure miss you guys already...if only we had our own private "jetplane".
