Gone Country

We had our wonderful family reunion this weekend in Louisiana. My aunt and uncle have a fabulous place in the country. It is so unbelievably quiet, relaxing, and beautiful and the weather was wonderful. It didn't really get hot until Sunday afternoon.

My kids enjoyed riding a horse, swimming, playing in a playhouse, and searching for arrowheads (that may or may not have been prearranged for them to find). I'm pretty sure they were prearranged, 'cause what are the odds that the 3 children looking for arrowheads would stumble upon exactly 3 arrowheads?!?

I enjoyed visiting with my cousins and their families - it was a great time to catch up and discover that although we live very different lives, we have lots in common! The same basic values that have been passed down to us from our parents. Good times!

And now, I'll share a fun little video with you that has nothing to do with our trip, but is funny nonetheless:

It was a great weekend. Thanks for going. It was good to be with family. It was fun to watch L & N run and play in the country with the cousins.

That's awesome everyone had a great time. The mom translator is funny. That would work great for someone I know....not my mom.

I am a country girl and I love it. Sometimes I wish I lived in the city, but I just can't handle a neighbor being that close to me. Sounds like you had an awesome time.

Happy Birthday Jennie!!!
