Summer Vacation, Part One
We had an amazing vacation at the end of July. The first portion of our trip was to visit my brother Ryan and his family. We flew out of Nashville on a Friday afternoon and landed in Albuquerque, New Mexico at 5:45.  Ryan picked us up at the airport, and we headed to Chick-fil-a to meet Aunt Rucha, Matt, Carly Ann, and Will. The kids were so excited to see each other!

Emily greeted Will with a big hug.
Emily and Matthew were excited to see the cow.
Carly Ann is not a fan of the cow, so she sat with Mom until he went away.
Happy Cousins

On Saturday morning, Uncle Ryan made pancakes. Then, we filled the day with all kinds of fun.

Yum!
Andrew and Carly Ann enjoyed the trampoline.
Matthew was ready to swim!
Emily braved the high dive.
Andrew and Uncle Ryan relaxed together for a bit.
Hanging out at home.
Aunt Rucha had cookie decorating goodies!
Andrew gave baseball lessons.

On Sunday, we went to church together, spent the afternoon playing, ate dinner at Jason's deli, and then made S'mores on the patio.

Emily learned that you shouldn't touch a cactus.
iPhone Fun
I let Will have a sucker when he woke up from his nap.  Aunts get to do things like that.
Uncle Adam made friends with Gromit.  Having him around made us miss Oreo.
Making S'mores
Love this sweet boy!

Tucking Will into Bed

We stayed until mid-day Monday and then loaded up a rental to head to Arizona.  It was a wonderful weekend and a great start to our trip!
