Spring Break

Here it is June and I just realized I haven't shared our Spring Break trip with you.  We rarely go anywhere other than to see family, but this time I had an itch to see some old friends.  It was well worth the time and travel!!

Here is the route (roughly) we took on our road trip.  It ended up being around 1700 miles.  (blah)

Friday - Our first stop was Bowling Green, KY.  My sister and her family live there and it's a good halfway stop on our way to GA.  Bonus - we got to attend my niece's 3rd birthday party.

Saturday - Arrival to Harold and Paula's home.  They were kind enough to give our crazy family a place to stay for a few nights.

Sunday - Attended worship services at South Fayette church of Christ.  It was great to see and talk with all our friends!  We were invited over for lunch at a friends house, Jay and Bridgette, following morning services.  We had a great time catching up and the kids all played together without arguing the whole afternoon!  The food was good and the company even better!

Monday - Took a trip into the city with Michael, Larissa and the girls to spend the day at the Georgia Aquarium.  Such a fun time and all the kids were kept entertained.

Tuesday - Lunch at Chopsticks in Peachtree City, GA.  (YUM!)  Drive to Auburn, AL to stay with the Roberts family.  Once again, the kids had a blast and we adults got a chance to catch up.

Wednesday - Drive to Huntsville, AL to spend a few days with Crystal and her family.  Attended worship services at Jordan Park church of Christ and caught up with some old friends there.

Thursday - Totally bummed the whole day.  It was GREAT!  Lots of time for the kids to play and run around outside, Kevin was able to catch up on his sleep, and Crystal and I got to catch up on all things going on in our lives.  When J came home from work it was like old times when we were all newly married and we could sit around and talk and laugh about anything and everything - we just have kids running around now.

Friday - Headed home.  The drive was uneventful with tired kids and lots of movies being played.  We did hit the outskirts of St. Louis just as the tornado watches/warnings were being announced over the airwaves, though.  Nothing like dark clouds and hail to welcome you home.

We had such a great time!  Of course, it's because of getting to see all our friends and renewing old friendships.

Momma's Salon & Spa

With school finished up and summer in full swing, my life is absolutely crazy right now.  Copious hours have already been spent at the pool, our door is a revolving door for neighborhood friends (which is great), the swing set only entertains for so long, and the kids are already complaining there is 'nothing to do'.  Plus, we are smack dab in the middle of VBS this week.  It is definitely summer, baby!

To change things up a bit, I took the time to 'play' with each of the girls' hair.

C's Criss-Cross Fishtail:

M's Curving Dutch Braid:

 O's Double Headband Braid:

I'm sure next week we will break out the nail polish and decorate those little fingers and toes.

Hope you all are having a wonderful start to summer!
