Solo Time

The week before last, Jeryn and I went to Columbia with Mario.  Mario will be taking over his own State Farm Agency in November, so he has been back and forth a lot between home and the Columbia Operations Center.  Jaiden was already going to be staying with Mo and Grandad that week for  VBS, so Jeryn and I decided to hit the road for a few days. 

We were cracking up because Jeryn totally knew he had us to himself those few days. He is crazy about his sister, but we just realized this was the first overnight trip we had ever taken with just him.  With Jaiden, it was different of course, because she had us to herself for the first three years! We were really missing her, but I think it was good for my little man to have some solo time.

Here he is just a few minutes after we checked in, making himself comfortable:


Here he is on the way to dinner, this was actually on Father’s Day:


At dinner:




At breakfast the next morning, and getting ready to hit the pool:


Is it me, or is he enjoying this WAY TOO MUCH??  He made his spot in the middle of the king bed for three days!

Before dinner the second night we were there:

(Notice the red rope that goes with us EVERYWHERE)


I love this one because we didn’t tell him to pose like this, he just did because he was doing exactly what Mario did :)

Of course he noticed everything in the hotel that had a horse on it…


Once we made it back, I was able to go the last two days to pick Jaiden up.  She and Rhett were having a blast, and she is still singing the songs they learned that week!

Jeryn is the cutest thing.....I would love to squeeze on him some!!! Kelly said Harper really liked him! They were so glad you all came by to see them!

Glad Jeryn got some "only child" time with ya'll! Looks like he really took advantage of it!!

Those pictures are just hilarious. He is living it up, isn't he? I really treasured those times of quality one on one time with the boys. And I was also happy to have Tyler alone after Kale left for college (even though we still have him. Ha!)

Jeryn looks JUST LIKE YOU in that third photo.

I love how he is totally chillin' in that big bed!!! What a cutie! Sounds like you had a great time!

I'm so glad he got to have a little get-away with y'all! :) He's so sweet! I had to laugh when I saw him wearing that inflatable horse--knowing about the fights that were to come over that thing when y'all got to Flippin--ha!

Looks like a fun trip!
