About a month ago, I woke up to a text from Aubrey that said, "Want to go to SoCal June 6-8 as my nanny?"

I immediately looked at my calendar and saw that I just so happened to have that Friday off of work -- practically a miracle. My heart leaped. Getting together with my siblings is hard since we all live so far apart. Once I saw that I could actually go, things happened so fast and I suddenly had a flight to Orange County and was staying in a ritzy hotel.

No complaints here.

We spent hours at the beach and by the pools, and baby Daphne survived being trapped with her scary Aunt Marcie all day Saturday while her mama was working. It was a perfect weekend getaway from the 110 degree heat.

^^I'm a really good nanny. Kids love me. ^^

The best part? I didn't have to say a real goodbye. Usually I only see family once a year, but Summer 2014 is the Summer of the Princes. Craig and I will welcome Mama and Papa Prince back to America in two weeks. And one month later the rest of the Prince gang is meeting up at the OBX in North Carolina. We'll be together for the first time in 3 years.

I can't wait.
