Caches and Smiles
We spent the weekend at my parents house. It was fun, and we got to go geocaching which is great fun! The 4 Wheel Tacos had hid one in a mesquite thicket and some were forced to leave a little of themselves in the walk. (Luckily the babes were in slings and fully protected by a grampa who sacrificed himself to the branches!)
I love being out in the desert, and I know that the place we were will someday be covered in houses, I only hope they find LOTS of Indian Ruins and are unable to build there or something. It makes me sad to think that the place we all learned to drive and spent many Thanksgiving and Christmas afternoons, will be a suburb someday. How sad growth it, and so hard for those who have lived here for decades and can't imagine it any other way. Even small things like a Walmart being built in a small town are strange. I know that there are millions of people who want to start over in a different place, but can't they move to the midwest? Or somewhere that isn't my beloved desert?
We finally were able to get a picture of the girls smiling and Madder covered her mouth, but you can see that she is smiling! Their smiles are so different, Bug turns into a giant open mouthed circle that you can't really tell is a smile and Madder has a more closed mouth smile. But both are cuteys nonetheless! Aren't they?
Will should be home today. He said early Monday morning, but as its the Army they probably had to do push ups as soon as they got back.
I have been an emotional wreck all weekend, I swear I haven't cried so much in months! (Ok so I haven't cried that much since the week after Bug was born! I was weepy then!) I went to church with my parents and I don't know why but hearing about people getting helped with money or baby clothes or just needing a helping hand made me bawl. There is a lady whose husband died, and just thinking of how hard that would be for her made the tears flow down my cheeks. Later we were trying to get my birthmark to show up and my mom started talking about that lady's husband dying again. It did make me get teary eyed (and yes made my red birthmark stand out!)
