On our first two road trips, I didn't take too many pictures, I think I made up for it on this one! I narrowed this down and probably only have 1/8th of the pictures I actually took, and there are still A LOT!
On June 29th after Allan got off work, we loaded up in the van and drove to Arizona. We drove all night and got to Allan's brother's house about 5:00 am. It was a long drive, but it was kind of nice that the kids were asleep most of the way!
We had SO much fun, and it was a very relaxing vacation. The kids played with their cousins, Jackson and Natalie (above) Brandon (below)
These boys were so great to play with my little girls and keep them entertained! Riley (below)
And this is EMILY! Emily was born about 2 weeks after Hailey, and my girls LOVE her!
Basically we spent the whole time doing this...
and a little of this...
and a little more of this....
We left on the 4th of July so here are some of my kids in their 4th attire.
If only I had 4 kids that would be a great picture of them, but the 5th child was doing this.
While we drove home, we stopped at a Mc Donalds for lunch and made another attempt at some pictures of the kids, these ones turned out much better!
BOY DO I HAVE CUTE KIDS!!!
I enjoyed this trip so much. It was wonderful to visit with Jonathan and Kari and to let our kids play. Kari told me that if we came we could expect a lot of sleeping and swimming and visiting, and that's just what we got. I got to relax and read and swim and play more than I can remember doing in years. It was FABULOUS!!!
