Last week, Eli went to sleep clutching a wallet size school picture of Jonah and Josiah in each hand. He obviously hasn’t forgotten our trip yet.
I always like to have our one last hoo-rah in late August. This year it was so fun to leave the desert and enjoy 10 days of cool weather and green grass. Now that we’re good and settled back in… and our jeans and jackets are loaded back into attic tubs… let’s take a moment to remember our vacation.
It was like spending a week at a nature center with the chickens to chase, apples everywhere, cows next door, artesian well to drink from
Time with the cousins all together is PRICELESS. I love all 6 of these kids with all my heart.
The county fair is always a favorite… even though it fills our carnie interaction quota for the year in one night. I swear these kids were supposed to be born into a farmer’s family… not a cereal salesman’s. If only Kellogg’s sold cheese curds…. mmmmm…. cheese curds. How will I wait ‘til next summer?
I love this picture because it sooo captures Eli’s little mischievous personality with that sideways glance after being told not to stick his hands in the pins.
Although it is no fun to live SO far away from people you love, its always such a blessing to create such lasting memories in such a fun place.
