Back to reality (sigh)

Caleb and I had a great week with my parents while Sean was away and truth be told I am having a hard time going back to reality of not having my parents around. It is amazing how much more you need your mom when you become a mom yourself, at least that is the case for me. There is a comfort in having your mom around, there is relaxation, there is peace and there is joy. 

One of my favorite summer events is going to a free concert in the park, which we went to on Friday night to hear some swing amongst the citrus groves here in Riverside. 
A little music, a lot of laughter and we had ourselves a great night topped off with stopping by a dessert place for an Italian cherry ice layered with vanilla custard, it was delish!
 My mom

 My dad

And quite a few of Caleb, and yes I may be a bit obsessed with the cuteness of my son

It's crazy how much more you appreciate your parents when you become one! Mine were gone this weekend for the first time since I had Beckett and I didn't know what to do with myself.

Aw it makes me get teary to think about having a baby and wanting my mom around all the time, too. I'm sure I'll be the same way! Glad your parents were able to spend a week with y'all.

Aww so glad you had such a good time! I love being with my parents too. I'm down in my hometown right now but have to go back home tomorrow. We're thinking about moving closer to them as we start a family :)
