Four more days!

…until Random Kocke Triplet (RKT) and I venture forth on our journey to the suburbs of the nation’s capital. I have almost been swayed to choose an RKT, thus rendering RKT not random at all, but I don’t know if I can do that. Not that they care, because whoever doesn’t go with me is going to have a grand old time with Grandma and Grandpa (who apparently bought out the toy section of Babies R Us). In fact, they’re probably hoping they DON’T get picked, in which case I’m being unfair to RKT for making him come with me.

That was confusing, wasn’t it? Anyway. We’ll see. Really it’s more about how terribly I’ll miss the other two who don’t come with me. How can I leave behind my sweet Miles, with his huge grins, or my Oliver bear, with his quizzical faces and heart-melting thumb sucking, or my Linus bear, with his chuckles and giggles and chin zit? Sigh. I think I need to get over it. It’s only for a few days, and I’ll be having so much fun that the time will go by quickly. Too quickly.

Goodness knows how I’m going to deal with my Canada trip, away from ALL THREE for three days!

Some pictures from the weekend…

The last two pictures remind me – there are some amazing sales going on right now. Holy cow, I bought a ton of stuff at Old Navy for next summer. DIRT CHEAP. We’re talking $1.50 for shirts, $3 for pants, and I got that hoodie that Oliver is wearing for $2.50. For RKT to wear on the plane. It gets chilly on airplanes! The cowboy hat Linus is sporting didn’t get purchased, as it was some ridiculous price (not on sale) at Gymboree. But it’s pretty much the cutest thing I’ve ever seen.

    Oh my god Pam, that cowboy hat may be the cutiest thing I have ever seen! Have a great time on your trip. We left the kids for the first time overnight this weekend and it was hard, but not as bad as I thought. Enjoy yourself. You deserve some fun!

    goodness gracious! i completely forgot to update my google reader and just realized today why you hadn’t posted in a while…duh rachael! anyway, good luck picking one of the boys for your travels. i would probably draw names out of a hat. and then over ride that by taking whoever was on their best behavior and appeared would travel best πŸ™‚

    oh, you should get the cowboy hat and RKT should wear it on the plane – I bet they would bump you up to first class for having the cutest little baby cowboy!

    I love the cowboy hat! I have to get to the mall, I love a good bargain. I was laughing at your minivan comment, I think that is exactly when I had the minivan thought, right after we found out while we were at the doctor. I think it was even our conversation on the drive home too!

    I think it’s great you’re taking one little guy with you – they say it’s so important to do that, have one on one time with each one – you’ll have so much fun!

    And Gymboree is totally my downfall – I can’t resist their stuff, and then there’s the matching headband, socks, blanket….. it goes on and on!

    Love the pics (as usual), Pam. This has probably been asked and answered, but how do you plan to choose RKT? I propose you place each of them in a swing, bouncy seat, whatever…then blindfold yourself and have George spin you around in circles to disorient you…then turn you loose. Whichever swing/seat you touch first determines the RKT. Oh & don’t forget to have George video all this for the blog. ; )
