I survived my first night away from Riley! I had a great time away with Kevin - and it was a very nice treat for both of us - but I was SO excited to get home this afternoon and grab my little miss right up! And Kevin was just as excited.
We left yesterday morning around 6:30am. Thank God, Riley woke up just about 5 minutes before we left. I could have had something to do with those few extra cabinet doors I accidentally slammed. But I was just so happy to get to see her and hug her and kiss her before leaving for Cedar Point and leaving her with my mom and dad. I did great through the day - we were so busy at the park that the hours flew, although we were busy the whole time talking about Riley and winning her prizes at the game booth! (Picture of Riley with HUGE monkey that daddy won her, coming soon ...).
But last night was hard. We had early entrance into the park, so that allowed us to get on things really fast and we were done with our day about 3:00pm. We checked into our hotel around 3:30 and decided to take naps before dinner. Kevin fell asleep - I didn't. Instead, I laid on the bed, softly crying, just wishing the hours would fly by so I could be back with Riley. I missed her SO badly.
Thankfully, the time moved at the perfect pace. We enjoyed our evening, had a fun time this morning being lazy and enjoying breakfast, then got 9 holes of golf in on the way home. But boy were we excited to run through the front door and see that beautiful smile from our Rye Pie!
