our week in a nutshell...

what a week we had! it was SO much fun being back on our "not so old" stomping really felt like nothing had changed - yet everything has. the girls had SO much fun playing and getting to enjoy the beautiful weather that was ordered up for our week in little rock. we started the week with the mosley girls and had such a fun time at the park.

then on thursday, ella and i hit the zoo with brooke, butler, stephanie, and meg...the weather was amazing and ella had a absolute blast hanging with all of her buddies! they were like ping pong balls all over that place! by the end, ella found her fingers and her belly button and fell right to sleep in the car! that night, my whole fam met the fisers and the dickens for dinner - that was mass chaos but so much fun! kids were bouncing around everywhere...more of the ping pong scenario!!!!

friday, ella got in my opinion...THE WORLD'S MOST ADORABLE HAIRCUT!!!!!!! patrick (the fabulous guy that has been cutting my hair for 7 years) did an amazing job and my sweet little baby doesn't look like a baby anymore! her hair definitely fits her personality! that night, the mosley's and prices went for pizza and a trolley ride!

saturday, we got to celebrate caroline's 3rd birthday with her with a fun easter egg hunt! her cake was so yummy and cute...and so were the girls! we then went and spent some time with the davidson clan...remember that ping pong thing...yeh...!!!!!! really, we had such a great time!

sunday, "honey & grandpa" came up to visit with us! they said that we couldn't be that close and them not get to see us! we had a blast! we all went out to wye mountain to see the daffodils and got some precious pics of the girls! most of them are from the back, but hey, we can get some face shots when they are 10 and 7!!!! we went back to the hotel and had a picnic on the bed and as you can imagine...ALL of the price girls were on cloud nine!!!! (especially the oldest price girl)

it was really hard to tell them goodbye (it was really hard to tell anyone goodbye) and ella broke my heart when we had to leave mom and dayne at the airport this morning. she cried so hard and said "mommy, it is just not the hurts so bad". i know that she, as well as i, are going to feel these things for a long time - maybe a REALLY long time - but it just hurts me to see her feeling such strong emotions. it also makes it exponentially harder for me not to cry!!!!!

for all of those dear friends that we did not see (and intended know who you are) were and are not forgotten! it is SO hard for us to make the rounds but we intend to catch up with you when we come back for ella's birthday (SAVE THE DATE: april 26th).

i, of course, could not resist driving by "our house" several times...which just broke my heart. it doesn't look the same. maddie's room is painted brown and there are red chairs in the living room...just a few of the things that were really noticeable to a stalker like me. the ache i feel for that house is really indescribable...i understand that a house is just a thing...but i can't make that feeling go away. i can still smell (in my mind) what it smelled like and i can still feel (in my mind) what it felt like to snuggle up on the couch in the great room and be hugged by the coziness. UGH...i know i can't have it back, but i would do anything to live there again.

well, there is just a brief glimpse of what we have been doing! it was so great to go back for a visit...i can't wait till the next one! my granny comes for a nice long stay this week and it couldn't come at a better time...i need some sweet granny "lovin"!!!!! we are going to whisk her off for a few adventures...the amish country for we will have more stories to share! thanks again to all of our amazing friends for such fun guys keep getting better and better!

****i will post pics of our great week soon...i did lots of photographic documenting!!!!!!****
