We went on our family vacation to Texas and Oklahoma. This is something we look forward to every year. I love visiting with my brother and his family, my aunt and cousins, and Husband's grandma (and other family if time permits). We drive, which is interesting with three active boys all under the age of four, but it wasn't bad. There was a lot of stopping, swapping books/toys, movie watching, napping (less napping than anything else of course). It was a good trip. As the boys get older I look forward to this more and more because they will start remembering things. We can take them places (in addition to family homes) and have them enjoy and interact with those places. This years extra stops included a model train museum, train ride and pumpkin patch visit, Cadillac Ranch in Amarillo, Tx, parks throughout NM, and the train in Kingman, Az. It was a lot of fun.

This past weekend we had a visit from Husband's parents (always a nice thing), I had a bridal shower for my sister-friend, and there was a birthday celebration for our nephew. Today is baking day (before the zucchini goes bad). Husband is excited about that because he loves this new carrot-zucchini bar recipe (substitute apple sauce for oil, add 3/4 cup oatmeal).
It feels good to be back in our routine.
