So we made it to Sunny Pensacola, where I swear it is a balmy mild summer day, not Fall.

It's funny watching my kids here sometimes. One of my sisters in law was just visiting our home, and it's just different how my kids are with each set of 'family'. With my husband's family, there is a lot of loud talk and commotion. There is laughter, political discussion, and everything is LOUD.

With my family, it is more sedate, still a lot of laughing, but more quiet.

Football was on last night and I looked over on the couch, and Mr. T was kind of nestled into my bro, watching with him. At some point, he fell asleep on TN. It just seemed natural. That's how my boys are with my family. They are very affectionate. Puppy-like is how I see it.

And when I watched T watching football with my bro, leaning into him, I thought, "this is how they were as babies." When my children were small, they'd climb right up into some member of my family's lap and play or watch TV. Now as bigger people, they don't sit in their laps, but they're quick to move into my family's personal space and hug them or sit close with them on the couch. There is no awkwardness, just affection.

It's nice.

I had to run out and buy some clothes as I'd only brought sweaters. Dang if my Mom doesn't run into people she knows everywhere. It's kind of funny.

The babies arrive on Wednesday. We are SO excited! We have babies to smooch!
