Here are a few highlights I’d like to share from my time visiting family and friends in Kansas this week.
Here’s Malachi taking a turn holding his cousin Austin.
He only dropped him off the couch once.
(Don’t worry…I caught him.)
Here’s my niece Renee.
She looks a LOT like I did as a little girl.
And yes, that is Elias attacking Malachi on the couch.
Glad I could capture that on film for you.
Here is a shot of my dad’s yard and our memorial day picnic.
I told Amy I would play Rock-Paper-Scissors with her to see who got to hold Silas first…but it wasn’t long before Amy had to take care of a kid with a bloody nose, so I snatched the opportunity to grab him up (first). :) Look how sweet he is.
Here are Amy’s kids…Crystal’s girls…and my boys all sitting around the table eating a picnic lunch. Amy and Crystal were so happy to tease me, the “Heavenly-Homemaker-I-only-eat-whole-foods”, since I was feeding my kids frozen pizza for the picnic. HEY. There was NOTHING else at my dad’s house to fix. Sometimes, you just have to resort to frozen pizza, you know?
Malachi wanted a turn with Silas too.
Malachi could never remember what Amy’s little girl’s name
was and kept saying, “Where did that girl go?”
I met a few friends, as well as my SIL Michele and her kids at the park on Wednesday. The weather took a sudden turn toward coldness and we all froze since I hadn’t packed warm clothes! After playing (freezing) at the park, we met my dad at a pizza place. (yes, more pizza) My dad’s wife Tacy couldn’t meet us during that time, so that was a bummer. I would have loved for her to be in this picture too.
Here we are waiting for our pizza to arrive.
I wanted a pic with Austin, and of course Malachi had to get in on it too.
Wednesday night after church, we went to see my niece and nephew play baseball. I ran into Amy again (and forgot to watch the rest of the ball games).
Thursday morning we headed home.
Everything about my week…definitely finer things.
Being back home with Matt…the finest thing of all.
