Beautiful! Very Nice! Sure you can't come? I could give you a job to justify the trip?

Oh, I wish Jennifer!

Kids have school that Friday and Hubby's work overlaps the time they get home and he works on Saturdays- his job change messed up our weekends and until I get my license(still working on that) I'm kind of stuck.

I'll be there in thought though!
