For a Very Important Vacation!!!!!
I know this information has nothing to do
with the building of a new house,
but please indulge me
while I share some
family photos from last weekend!
Truly the highlight of my year!
Our sweet reunion with
Kellie Matt and Maya
at the airport!
It's a Maya sandwich!
Kevin looks like he is trying to figure out how to
get into the sandwich!
The strange garb he is wearing
is Kansas flag.
He decided to be Kansas Man for the day
since the kids were flying in from MS,
probably illegal and disrespectful,
but that's how we roll sometimes...
More silliness and giddiness
and Maya trying to figure out who just swooped into her world.
These two sisters have not seen each other in 3 1/2 years!
There was lots of crying and hugging all around.
gotta love that goofy Kevin! Even Maya is taken with him!
Back in town...
Maya's first trip to
The Mall Deli.
She discovered that she loves pickle spears!
And the Mall Deli, of course!
Just a little dip in the kiddie pool...
It sure is hot here in Kansas!
Yes her eyes really are that color!
The very next day
we loaded up the wagons and caravaned to
our favorite summer lake destination,
Holiday Island Arkansas!
Here are some of the highlights of our weekend there...
Who knew it would be so hard
to get three squirmy little girls
to sit still for a photo op in a cloud of pink tulle?
Uncle Kevin instructs the girls
on the fine art of corn shucking.
There is something magical about
getting out on the boat
on beautiful Table Rock Lake!
Safe in Daddy's arms
Nana driving the boat
Everybody else chillin...
Maya and Daddy
Two hot chicks
Kellie, Matt and Maya
Maya did 1,2,3,dunk! several times and
seemed to love it.
Livi at the controls with Grandpa
Kevin entertaining the girls.
Our one meal out,
at the famous Bubba's BBQ
in Eureka Springs...
Since we all dressed up and are looking so cute
let's take some pictures!
My pretty girls...
Hey, you in the middle!
Back at the house
lots and lots of
relaxin going on.
I'm not sure what all is going on here,
but it started out as a neck massage
and grew into what looks like
a tent /tunnel/somethingorother!
More photo ops...
these two look pretty fab in their matching lake shirts!
This cute little swimmer
is doing her double thumb sucking
and swimming at the same time...
Matt wowed us with his
Can you say Lake Hair????
Livi tubin with her Daddy
Thanks for letting me show you some of the great times we had together
in the last few days.
We are back home now,
stacks of boxes everywhere
waiting for me to get off my fanny and unpack them.
We live in the new house now!
Can you believe that???
I look around and feel the need
to pinch myself!
I .Am.So. Blessed.
I am enjoying being here with my family
playing with little Maya
and catching up with Kellie and Matt.
There are so many loose ends to tie up
before I can even start to decorate
and fluff my new nest...
All in good time,
all in good time.
