last week

 Last week we went on a really quick trip to Texas.  
A really quick trip. 
We flew in on Tuesday afternoon and drove away on Friday morning, around 6 a.m.  
We were blessed to spend two and a half very fun days with Richard's wonderful family.  
And we got to see my wonderful sister.  
We went rock climbing, played in Richard's family pool, ate yummy Texas barbecue, 
and went out to eat.  
And we got a new (used) car.  
Which we then proceeded to drive 20+ hours back to our neck of the woods.  
We had a grand time on a fun road trip together.  
We drove over the Louisiana bayou, had yummy snacks, stayed in a fun hotel, 
and thankfully didn't run into the messy, messy storm that has since hindered the majority of Virginia and our surrounding area.  
And we are even more thankful that we were blessed to come home to electricity.  
We had a great little mini-vacation and are thankful to be home, safe and sound! 

Oh and while we were galavanting around Texas, this little girl had her first ever legitimate play date.  Here's the proof: 
Thanks to my parents for taking care of her and socializing her while we were gone!  
She had a great time! 


  1. I really love that picture of Carly. She looks so mature and serious... what a cutie!
