Family Time

What a blessing to be able to spend a week away last week! David had a conference and we were all able to go with him and enjoy being together! Plus, how can you beat a paid hotel room and meal allowance?!

Here are a few highlights of the week:

Emily and Brianna (my friend Grace joined us for a couple of days!):
Emily got to do some fun rides - a first for her!
Rachel enjoying the tunnel at the aquarium:
Not sure what this look is about, but Rachel had fun climbing up on these chairs in the hotel lobby any chance she could:
Samuel sleeping in the Snugli - the way he had his hand over his eyes made me laugh - so dramatic!
Samuel is growing - thought you'd enjoy this photo of him with his eyes open:

Samuel in the snuggy -- I think he's saying, "All these women! What's a guy going to do?" Great photos.

The pictures show what a fun time away you had! Bless your heart for going with such a tiny baby! Praying you found some time to rest and relax before heading back to the routine of life!

That picture of Samuel in the snugli made me laugh. It looks like he's saying, "Oh these silly gals, what's a guy to do!"

The pictures are precious. SO glad you had such a wonderful time together as a family. Good for you!
The picture of Smauel in the Snugli is adorable!
And of course, I like the one of Emily in the teacup...and the one of Rachel on the big chair.
Take care and God bless.

Love, Grandma
