It Just Keeps Gettin' Better

We have had another great week and weekend. The work week stays busy and flies by. We got up Saturday morning and stopped at McDonalds for breakfast on the way to Newhope. We went dressed in our bathing suits and hit the pool as soon as we got to Nana and Poppa's house. We played in the pool with Uncle Seth and Poppa. Nana got home later and they grilled out for lunch/supper.
After the pool, it was time for the over sized sand box. The grown ups had just as much fun as the kids.

First, they decided to bury Alex.

And after Alex, it was time for Biscuit to get buried.

We had a great day of swimming and playing. We were all red and sun burned. All three of the girls ended up tan by Sunday morning but Alex and I weren't so lucky. Alex is burnt really bad across his chest and shoulders. Saturday evening, Nana and Poppa watched the girls while Alex and I went to Texarkana for some alone time. It was really nice. Alex and I really enjoyed being able to have a conversation without stopping to handle what the kids need every two seconds. It was also nice to get in and out of the car quickly and to not have to get a buggy everywhere we went. I think I enjoyed that outing a little too much, lol.
Today was our monthly family potluck. After church, we headed down to a picnic area by the water and had a great lunch with our family. Our get-togethers are getting better all the time! My cousin Lindsey and her little boy Jackson were able to come this time and our good friends John Robert and Katie came too. It was wonderful!

It makes it a little tougher to leave from visits back home when we get to have such a great visit with everyone. I have to say, yet again, that I am SO incredibly thankful for my family and the joy and love that they bring to life. Thanks guys!

So glad you updated the blog! The pictures of Seth and Alex had me rolling with laughter! The girls are just beautiful and growing so fast.
