I have a lot of pictures to post and stories to tell but I'll just start with these since the dishes aren't going to wash themselves and I have to get to bed so I can be on my A game tomorrow because we're getting our carpets cleaned so we need to be out of the house most of the day. I'm kind of a home body and we have a lot of naps to take between the three of us girls (just kidding, I don't usually nap these days) so it's going to be tricky for me. Anyway, I'll start with just a few highlights and my fav sequence of family pics:
We went to Utah for the 4th of July and Grandma Hawkins was there and the kids mauled her. I wasn't there to witness this and when I saw the pics at first I thought this was Mads.
|After a stay in Modesto (which I'll post more about later) we went to beeeaaautiful Oregon and played with the Johnstons.|
|so many cousins!|
|And now we're home and quite happy about it.|
