Look what happens when I turn my back for a few minutes :) Too cute.

Where have we been? Well, I was in Starkville, Mississippi, attending and presenting at a conference on the campus of MSU. It was the first time I left Josh overnight (two nights to be exact). I missed my boys so much! The conference was fantastic and the presentation was well received! Our colleagues at MSU were wonderful hosts and made us feel right at home. Here are a few pictures from the trip:
|Mugshots - the BEST burger in the entire world. Seriously!|
|MSU - Quad area of campus|
|View of the football stadium|
|MSU ice cream! Muscadine Ripple is delish! Their ice cream definitely gives the howling cow a run for their money.|

Look at this stinker. Our little mover and shaker is crawling all over the place. One of the first things he gravitated towards was the tv console. I don't know what it is, but kiddos LOVE the console. It has sliding doors, which makes it even more attractive. E plans on jerry-rigging the doors, so they do not move. With that being said, it is time to baby-proof the house. I cannot believe he is mobile...really mobile and it is only the beginning :)

I cannot explain how tired the Doyle Three feel right now. We arrived home late last night and managed to sleep in this morning. Thank you, Josh :) I think this picture is hilarious. His facial expression is a combination of surprise from the landing and giving his diaper the business. I must add that Josh rocked both plane rides. We felt so proud of him, especially when other passengers complimented on his behavior. Of course, we probably lucked out this time. Ha!

Today, we took a short drive into Wisconsin to visit the Potosi Brewery. I highly recommend touring the site on a weekday. We had the place to ourselves! After the tour we ate lunch and sampled beer. I give the Good Old Potosi Beer two thumbs up. Nice and light, right up my alley! My parents bought a growler of root beer, poured straight from the tap. The root beer is oh soooo good!

Mom and dad took us to Galena, Illinois, about a 20 minute drive from DBQ. Galena was once the home to Ulysses S. Grant. It's a quaint little town filled with antique stores, trendy boutiques and restaurants. We ate lunch and did a little shopping (no surprise there). We arrived back at my parents house just in time to greet Kaylen at the bus stop. It was such a beautiful day. I'm so glad to be here with my family! More pictures from our visit to DBQ to come!

Kindle :) I LOVE IT! My dear hubby and family gave it to me for my birthday. This neat piece of technology stores a TON of books, magazines, newspapers and blogs. I've been looking into Kindles for a while and was a little torn about going paperless, then reality set in. We are running out of physical space AND how great is it that I can carry HUNDREDS of books with me all the time? I can purchase a book with a click of a button and it's uploaded in under a minute. A new book typically costs $10. I'm so excited and cannot wait to add books to my new virtual library.

I could not have asked for a better first Mother's Day! E and Josh woke me up with Starbucks, tulips, and gifts in bed. Then, Eric made a killer breakfast for his mom and me...his pops too. The perfect day ended with a show at the DPAC...WICKED! Wicked was AH-MAZING! The story, songs, set...FANTASTIC! I cannot wait to see it again. This musical is definitely a must see. Thanks, Tracy hooking us up with tickets! We had a great time with you guys!
