It was a beautiful ride and the arrival was even prettier.
We travel not just because we wanted to take a break from building. We traveled to see Jason's family in Pennsylvania for our annual family reunion.
This was the new sweet baby boy at the event.
Every sibling was able to be there.
Grandpa will be 80 in a couple of weeks. That's a long time to live. And he has seen alot. He will tell you about it if he gets a chance.
On Saturday there were lots of messy games planned. Water fights. Kickball on a big slippery piece of plastic. And at the end the kids made some human sundaes. WOW! Good sport uncles let the kids put all kinds of sticky gooey topping on their head.
Sophie found her little friend and cousin Jada. She was with her most of the weekend.
This is Jada and her grandma... My sister in law Deb.
Games of every sort were played throughout the weekend.
Jon and Zonya hosted us along with their amazing family. Those girls of theirs served us the entire weekend. Making sure we all had plenty of food and cleaned up after us.
I got a couple of other shots of individual families.
This is Jason's 2 oldest brothers and their families.
On Sunday evening Jason and I got to run over to a friends house who lived in the area. These are friends that go waaaay back. Tonya was my camp friend. After camp we went to college together for one year. She invited some mutual friends that went to the same school. It was so much fun. We laughed as we caught up and remembered what we were like oh so many years ago...
On Monday after a breakfast buffet we loaded back up for our trip home. One of ours was already passed out in the back seat.
And this was the expression on our Pennsylvania family faces as we prepared to drive away.
I'm not sure why they look so happy. It's hurtful. But I'll get over it :)
It is always good to go.
But I gotta say...
There's just no place like coming home.
Today we unpack and tomorrow we go back to school.
