In October Josh and I had the opportunity to go to England for 8 days. Josh served his mission there and he has been wanting to go back and see all of the people there so finally after 3 years of being back from his mission we went back! I was so hesitant to go because that meant one thing...not being able to take Joshy. Being the big cry baby that I am, I started crying when he booked the tickets because I didn't want to leave Joshy for 8 days!! Keep in mind I was still breast feeding and Joshy didn't take a Binky or Bottle so I was even more nervous leaving him because what if he didn't take a bottle from my mom??? Well as the trip got closer I had been telling myself it would be okay. Josh and I flew to Florida and dropped Joshy off at my parents house because they were watching him while we were gone. We stayed in Florida for the weekend and in the meantime it was Josh's birthday so we decided to do a little celebration at my parents house. (The England trip was also a part of his birthday) We left for England that Sunday night and let me just tell you, saying goodbye to Joshy was so hard! I was a crying mess! The people at security were like are you okay? I was like yeahhhh. Josh was laughing at me and saying it's going to be okay!!! Well, I finally stopped crying when I got on the plane but I would of course have random times when I would just burst into tears. haha It was quite comical! About 3 hours into the flight I had to pump, so I went to the restroom got my pump out and was about to start pumping until I tried to turn it on and IT DIDN'T WORK! My heart dropped. I was thinking no way this can't be happening. I had just used it a few hours prior so I knew it worked! I go back to my seat and tell Josh my pump is broken. We tried to figure it out and NOPE it still wouldn't work. Long story short...we get to England and I'm walking through customs bawling because I hadn't pumped in 13 hours and I was in pain. (I also missed Joshy ha) The lady at customs drilled me with questions because I was crying so she wanted to make sure nothing serious was wrong and I told her I just need a breast pump haha she finally told me where I could find one. After that I was great!! Being away from Joshy wasn't as bad as I thought. After the first day the trip was so relaxing and fun! Josh and I spent that day going to different members houses. We went to see the play Wicked and it was SO GOOD!! Loved it! That whole week we went all around London and Wales. It was a nice vacation with just the two of us! I loved meeting all the wonderful people he taught and met while serving his mission. I can't wait to go back again someday! We picked Joshy up and it was so good to see him! Thanks to my mom who got Joshy to master taking a bottle and binky! xoxo
Halloween: This was Joshy's first halloween and I had to take him trick or treating! I of course ate all his candy! It was so much fun though!
Thanksgiving: This year we spent Thanksgiving with my family in Florida. It was so fun to spend time with my whole family and relax! I have so much to be grateful for!!
