Tour de Family and Friends

While our hardwood was being installed, Little C and I took the opportunity to visit some friends and family we hadn't seem in a while. We drove up to Little Rock, AR with a stop in Dallas on the way there and back to break up the trip.

We first stopped to visit Little C's friend Reese. Reese's mommy and Daddy just moved (back) to Dallas and into the cutest house you've ever seen. They are expecting their second and both sets of our kids will be 20 months apart! (both of their two will be three months older). We had so much fun visiting with them, and these two kiddos were crazy playing with each other. We had to cut them off at night because they'd get each other so worked up before bed. It was so fun/funny to watch them interact!

Then it was off to Little Rock to visit my aunt and uncle. We also got to catch up with my cousin, her husband and their two adorable dogs (well, one of the puppies actually belongs to my aunt, but there is definitely some shared custody going on :) Little C had so much fun with the puppies, but the littlest of the two wasn't feeling very good while we were there. We hope Gretta feels better!!

Back in Dallas, we got in a quick visit with my other aunt and uncle and her two sons. We also got a chance to visit my Grandparents on our last afternoon in Dallas. Little C was pretty fed up with travelling at that point, so the visit was brief, but it was so good to see everyone!

I took pitifully few pictures, but here are some highlights.

The prettiest sunset I've ever seen just outside of Dallas

Are we there yet?? :(

So I don't have a single picture from our time in Arkansas...Aunt P if you are reading this, you'll have to send me a copy of the ones you took!!

Thanks to all the people that put us up. We left a trail of crumbs and dirty diapers in our wake, but it was so wonderful to see you all! Thank you for a wonderful trip!!
