I flew out to CO last Friday, 11/13, to surprise my dad for his 60th birthday. Melissa, Dan, and Wes picked me up at the airport and even after a bumpy flight, that little man can change your entire day. He’s growing up so fast and now at almost 5 months, he’s funny, entertaining, and even more adorable than before (impossible, I know!). Friday night we met/surprised my parents at Houston’s for dinner (delicious vege burger). It’s always so great to all be together – although Arion was extremely missed. My mom had planned to make an early Thanksgiving since both my sister and I will be with our in-laws this year, so we did that post-blizzard on Sunday. It was a typical Sachs Thanksgiving… lots of food, lots of football, and now a new tradition, lots of Wes snuggles. Everything was delicious and we had the best day. Monday, I went to Wes’ last music class with my sister. We had a blast singing, dancing, and using baby-friendly instruments. Afterwards, Danny watched Wes so Melissa and I could have a long-overdue sister lunch. We chatted, laughed, and hugged (against Melissa’s will). Monday night, the famous Mark Wood came to the high school where my dad works to perform a concert. He’s the first electric rock violinist and pretty incredible. Tuesday was my dad’s actual birthday, so we went to Melissa’s for brunch. Then I cried and had to leave to come back to NY. I tell you, if I didn’t have such an amazing husband waiting for me, I’d never be able to get on that plane.
Here are a few photos from the weekend:
