While He's Been Away...

On Sunday we dropped Payton off for a fun-filled week at camp. He LOVES going to this camp because he gets to do so many awesome things! He always has a blast.

Here he is with his friend JJ on the first day of camp. The boys were so excited about getting to spend the week swimming, jet skiing, and playing every sport you could think of.

We go to pick him up tomorrow morning and I can't wait to see him!!!! A week away from my baby boy is TOO long! Unfortunately we have some sad news to give him when we see him.

No, it's not what you're thinking... Although he will be sad that Michael Jackson passed away and even sadder that Shaq is now a Cav (which means his beloved Lakers no longer have a chance), it's something even more important to him. His best friend, Mason, is going to be moving back to Baltimore at the end of July.

Mason's family has lived here for the past year and a half and during that time they have become like family to us. First of all, they are the most HILARIOUS people you could ever meet. They are so much fun to be around and they always make us smile. They are a wonderful family - so full of love, kindhearted, and did I mention they are HILARIOUS?? They have helped us out a lot this past year when I had to have my surgeries. They watched Payton for us on numerous occasions and I never had to worry because I knew he was in such a loving, safe environment. I have tears in my eyes as I write this because we will miss the Douglas family dearly!

I think I see a trip to Baltimore in our future! :)
