Last weekend, we loaded up the kids and traveled 7 1/2 hours (including all of our stops) to San Antonio. We decided to go and see friends, who we miss very much. It took us a while to get there, but the company and scenery was well worth the car ride. We haven't seen our San Antonio friends since we moved in July, and seeing them all again was fantastic. All of our kids have gotten so big, and none of them had met our Reesey yet. Late Thursday night, we arrived at the Torres house.
The next morning, when we got up, Evan and Rylan hit the ground running. These two boys picked up right where they left off. I swear they may be the same little boy just 6 months apart. We were also thrilled to finally meet Mia, she is 2 months older than Reese and just precious. After we all settled down a bit, we got ready and went to Christus Santa Rosa (Tyson's old work) to see everyone and catch up. Tyson beamed with pride as he showed off his beautiful babies, it was really cute. After that we met up with the Torres family at the Riverwalk for lunch. Then we all went back to the Torress' for naps. The babies napped, but the two older boys were in rare form and no nap was taken by them. So we sent the boys outside to play, and we began to get food ready for when the Inabinnets and Vadens arrived. Melina and Jesse were so kind to have everyone over to their house for a cookout just for us. Thank you guys so much. The evening was beautiful, the kids were great, and the company was excellent. We all picked up where we left off, just like we never moved.
On Saturday we spent the morning just relaxing at the Torres house. We had nothing on our agenda that day, mainly to just hang out with our dear friends. The boys ran wild, the baby girls watched in amazement, and we parents just sighed and laughed about how "These are the days of our lives." Eventually, after all four kids napped, we loaded up and headed to dinner. We enjoyed the weather while we were there, it was perfect, 75 and sunny with a breeze. Bluebonnets and wild flowers everywhere (which I didn't get a picture of, man.)
Sunday morning we loaded up and headed home back to West Texas. The drive home was great, the weather was perfect, and the babes were little angels (which was way better than the drive there). Catching up with friends was great, and watching all of our children play was fantastic.
The girls, Reesey and Mia, a little bit of sweetness.
The boys, Rylan and Evan, a little bit of honory.
Our family of four at the Riverwalk.
We girls, Melina, Mia, Reese, Me, Codie and Emily. Even though there is a 7 hour difference between our homes, our friendships still remain!

Until our next visit friends.................
