I went home this past weekend (super last minute, with very little time to do anything) and we made the most of our 30-hour window. Lots of food, fruit picking (& throwing), and dirty toes thanks to my aunts’ secret garden of a front yard.

We drove in around 7PM on Friday and I pretty much handed the kids off to my mom and took a 2 hour nap.

As if a 2-lane highway isn’t bad enough, one lane was closed for construction so the usual 3 hour drive turned into a 5 hour drive without anywhere to pull over for a rest or bathroom break. RJ had a loose poop incident and I had to tuck a diaper into my jeans to pee while stuck in bumper-to-bumper traffic.

Yea–that happened. Hashtag: Epic Fail.

Anyways, Saturday morning we went to breakfast at Magnolia Pancake Haus (as seen on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives).

This place really is amazing–If you’ve never been to one, definitely seek one out. I ordered bacon pancakes and corn beef hash.

Amaziiiiiing.

Later that day we went to my aunts’ house and had some good, old-fashioned garden fun. My aunt, funny enough, calls herself the “accidental gardener”; if she sees a plant or a flower she loves, she just grabs some of the buds and plants them in her yard, haphazardly.

There is absolutely nothing like being home.
