Nikki and I loaded up and ready to go
Five hours later, sitting in Dallas traffic, ready to let these kids stretch their legs!
An example of what we did for the next 2.5 days
My girls have become little fish who love to swim
This little guy was happy in the pool with me or swinging away in the shade
We had picnics and cookouts.
We painted with chocolate, and....
got really, really messy!
And I even fulfilled a lifelong dream of having my picture taken with Cookie Monster!
But more importantly, I got to spend the weekend with good friends who really feel more like family. Late nights and long days of talking, laughing and doing life together....I am really grateful!
