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.|
On Saturday morning, Uncle Ryan made pancakes. Then, we filled the day with all kinds of fun.
|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.|
|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.|
|Love this sweet boy!|

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!
