…and yearly family reunion in Independence!! (warning, photo and Layla-heavy post)
The dads and kids decorated up one of our best parade entries yet! (Sweepstakes award… doncha know)
and, yes, we know we’re dorks, and are proud of it!
We spent some time cooling off in our favorite creek
Layla was fairly worshiped by my cousin’s kids….. all weekend!
and was so tired by the end of the weekend she didn’t even mind being decorated with their freshly-painted wooden snakes and lizards!
(she’s a very good sport and, we found out, very child friendly!)
I even got some knitting done while soaking our feet in the ice-cold crawdad bucket (anything to cool off in the 100 degree “dry” heat)!
I am blessed with a family who loves spending time together and knows how to have fun!
