We traveled west for Easter weekend this year - it was great! We visited the old neighborhood... man, did it remind us how much we appreciate trees and space! We actually drove right past our old house and didn't realize it until it was behind us... that's how close together the homes are. It was a touch claustrophobic after being back in glorious East Texas for a year. It was awesome seeing a few old friends and seeing how their kids have grown up in the last year.. bittersweet but fun. Like my one friend said, we didn't realize how much we missed those people until we came back to visit. Good times.
Then we headed on over to Boyd for a visit with mom, Grandma and Grandpa, and of course "Wee-yer" the schnauzer. Caleb loves Wheeler! Caleb spent both nights sleeping at Mawmaw's house (next door through the woods) while Greg and I (and Carly) stayed over at Gma and Gpa's. Both kids slept like angels, and it was soooooo nice! Saturday morning we went down to the Easter egg hunt at their church and the kids had fun. Caleb got up on the stage while we were waiting to go out and started running in circles. Greg and I looked at each other and asked, "Whose kid is that???" Funny. Carly decided she was big and took off through the legs of all the grown people in the room (quite a few) to check out the prize table. More than once I actually lost sight of her because she was such an explorer! Gotta remember to watch this one, she is fearless...
Sunday after a great church service we headed down to Midlothian for lunch with all my cousins on mom's side that live around the area. A bunch of big appetites! Lunch was delish and then the older kids hid eggs for the younger kids and had another fun little egg hunt. Soon after we headed home expecting both kids to sleep all the way home... HA they surprised us... not a wink, but Carly did make a great mess of cracker crumbs in her carseat... last minute we stopped by the Rices to pick up Ladybug and ended up staying for a fried fish dinner. Yum! Great way to end a GREAT weekend!!
