Tom and I have long been a fan of Ikea. It's one of our favorite places to visit together - weird I know. Instead of stressing us out, it makes us excited with possibilities. It helps that our mammoth of a car Penny fits almost everything we could possibly want fairly easily. We don't get there often, so by the time we do, we'll have a years worth of ideas and projects and things we want to get while we're there.
Yes it's easier to leave him home. Let him stay with Tom while I go hang out with my two favorite ladies. Two on one, big people to littles. It's a lot less hectic, a lot less tiring.
The look on their faces when they see each other? When they realize that this wasn't just a normal outing, that they get to see their buddy? Pure joy, happiness and excitement.
Warning: This post is obnoxiously long, filled with pictures (seriously it may not even load on your phone - I actually didn't post half of what I took because it was taking so long), and maybe not be that interesting to many people, but I like to post snap shots of our life from time to time and see how they've changed. Here's a peek into our life right now (on the weekends at least)
