Two weeks ago, Abi and I headed down to Houston with Big D for the weekend. We left Friday morning, fully planning on getting into Houston around 3 o’clock (left around 11 o’clock, calculating a much-desired tradition-stop in Italy, Texas for a yummy Starbucks). HAH – we arrived in Houston 5 hours later, with an Abi who decided that she only needed 30 minutes of sleep. We had a very happy Nanny and Joshua (and soon Jenny and Brian!) waiting for us upon our arrival! We had planned on being in Houston that weekend because Donald had finals the following week, and we wanted to give him the ultimate scenario to get great studying done! But, much to everyone’s delight and surprise – Donald surprised us on Saturday night after two days of great studying – he missed us. (Insert MEGA smile from abi & I) So we finished up our holiday weekend as a full family – enjoying time with one another and making memories!
Waiting for Grandpa to arrive, watching Sesame Street! (This was clutch as I was scurrying around making sure we brought everything!)
A happy Nanny – reading to both of her grandbabies!
Riding the horse that Donald and Jenny had when they were little! I love things like this!
FUN Uncle Brian!
Can you tell we have fun when we’re all together??
Painting Pumpkins! Side note: Using washable paint is a great idea for being able to wash off of babies and clothes – not such a good idea for the actual pumpkins. We’ll be ready next year…
Cooking pancakes with Aunt Jenny the next morning! They taste more yummy when made with Aunts, you know.
Josh and his Uncle Doon
COUSINS make the bestest friends!
Jenny, Brian, and Joshua – WE LOVE YOU!!
