Family Friday

Chirp... chirp... chirp. 

We don't have crickets in our house, but if we did, you'd certainly be able to hear them. I carted Kari and Casen to Luxurious Ardmore, Oklahoma on Wednesday night, where Kari's sister Sara and nephew John Michael met us to take Kari and Casen the rest of the way to Kari's parents' house. 

Sara and Michael had twins last year about this time, and have outgrown their mid-sized SUV. So, they recently purchased a pimped-out school bus equivalent (okay, it's a Denali), and sold us their old car. We're in the process of trying to get rid of Kari's go-kart (Saab), because the car seat doesn't fit in the back seat at the same time a passenger is riding in the front seat. So, it was a good excuse for Kari to spend some time with her parents, Casen to spend some time with his Millie and Boppo, and me to spend time with the back of his eyelids (and with Sutton, who was left out of this trip to Oklahoma). 

Unfortunately, I'm kind of missing them around the house. For the last two nights, I've woken up every three hours ready for Casen to eat. Kari says he even slept for four hours between feedings last night, so I don't know what the deal is. 

I'm going to try to ease my pain by playing golf today and tomorrow. We'll see how that goes. The last two times I've played, I've shot the best scores I've shot since college, so I'm due for a blow-up. Unfortunately, I'm playing on a really difficult course (TPC Las Colinas where they play the Byron Nelson PGA event every year), which might accommodate that blow-up. But, I'm looking forward to the time with one of my friends, his dad, and a random guy I've never met. 

Have a great weekend. That's the family update for us. I guess I'm going to spend the morning pouting with Sutton. Mom and Casen are gone. The house is quiet. We can't sleep. And we've got the blues... But golf is coming... See, there's always hope.

Such a sad story you tell,,,the house is always different without a little bay around.
