Possibly Definitely the most fun trip we’ve taken in our 12 years together. Our children being old enough to take care of themselves contributed to this, but really it was the people. Our favorite people.
Endless hours of popcorn on the trampoline, water balloon fights, eating frozen yogurt in the heat, dirty feet and not a care in the world. The Stevens’ know how to make the middle of March feel like summer vacation.
We felt right at home the moment we arrived. Helped ourselves to the fridge, our girls shared with each other without hesitation, and there was *no fighting all week*!! Eight humans, happy as can be in each other’s company. We would make for terrible reality television.
Mae got sun sick one afternoon. Poor girl. I got snuggles out of it, so it wasn’t all bad!
Zack and I took a ride in Jonathan’s red VW bug. Very cool! I mean, look how close I got to be to Zack!!!! We may just need to invest in a punch buggy. Anything to get a little more shoulder contact with that man!
My dearest friend took me out for an entire day, just the two of us! Food, shopping, and plenty of catching up!
(KBC has incredible food, and Dothan Ice Cream has the best homemade ice cream and popsicles!)
They took us to family day at the art museum. We got to create faux stained glass pictures to take home, and did a scavenger hunt around the galleries. The whole experience gave Zack a lot of ideas for his classroom. (The art was all made by kids grades K-12. They even had a section of art made by blind children!)
I still have two posts to write about our time with them, but this image of Rae, the morning we left, sums up our general mood. Sad.
