Word of the Weekend: Family

When we found out that Derek’s grandparents (who live in Oklahoma) were going to be in Arlington for the weekend, we did not hesitate to load up the party van and head north for the weekend.  We don’t get to see Grandma and Grandpa Thurman very often.

So this family of 5 left bright and early Saturday morning for a weekend filled with family. Well, as bright and early as possible considering I had not done much packing or prep work on Friday.  I think we were on the road by 10:00.

We enjoyed so much yummy food, good conversation, and even took the opportunity to get a few pictures.

Here we’ve got Pawpaw and Nana (Derek’s grandparents), Grandpa and Grandma (D’s other grandparents), Nonny and Pops (D’s mom and dad), Larry and Shannon (D’s aunt and uncle), and us.

Camryn takes any opportunity to steal the show.  She is such a ham.

And here are 4 generations of Thurman men.

We also got some good cousin time in.  My kids love to play with Madison, Abby, Max, and Sam.  At one point, it had gotten a little quiet inside which can sometimes mean trouble.   Imagine my surprise when I found Madison and Connor engrossed in a game of Monopoly, and Abby and Camryn enjoying some quality book time together.  So cute.

Cousins are the best.

And I loved giving this little chunk of love a big squeeze.  I cannot believe how big he’s gotten since the first time we met.  He certainly doesn’t miss any meals!

All in all, it was a great weekend filled with the love of family.  Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
