A Haul of Fun

Jules and I love to go to consignment sales and have planned for months to meet up in LR this weekend to attend our most favorite sale of the year. The photo above is of us after 1.5 hours of steady shopping and a quick dinner at Jason's Deli. It was most fun being together without any distractions, laughing, and driving away with a haul of goodies. We really do share a soul and I love having her all to myself sometimes. I don't think that is too selfish of me.

Part of our plan was to meet up and spend the night at our Aunt Suzy's house. She is our Mawmaw's sister and our Mother's travel buddy. She has the house that every child loves to visit. I remember as a child being gitty in the backseat on the way to LR thinking about the fun I would have in her basement and such. It overlooks the Arkansas River, with the back of her house being all glass windows. I love this view. The night time view is actually my favorite.

Anna is no exception...in fact, all 4 of Julie's children love coming to this house. Anna was the only one who got to come with Julie for our overnight stay and Anna ate it up. As you can see, Aunt Suzy loved it alot also.

Our sweet Mama came to stay with us and keep the 2 kiddos while we shopped and ate on Friday night. Henry was such a good boy and slept so good in the room with Marmie. Juju and Marmie loved seeing him so happy when he woke up. Mornings are his best time. They will kill me for posting this picture of them in their morning best, but I loved the expressions too much not to share.

Anna got to have eggs and ice cream for breakfast. Tell me she is not spoiled rotten? The boys were most jealous of the ice cream at breakfast. They are already asking when they will get their turn!

Anna rode with me on to Twinkle Town so Henry and I could stay the night with Juju and her gang. Anna is such a good little nanny. I need her to come home with me because she is a great third arm and an extra set of legs...plus, she is just too cute for words.

Juju and Anna had fun giving Henry a bath in their kitchen sink. I told them it reminded me of the Moses story with all the women bathing him as a baby. Henry loves the bath and their sink was no exception.

Uncle Stephen loves a baby and Henry is most blessed for it. He has been looking after him since we arrived and has given him his first real baseball. Henry may not make it in the car with me tomorrow afternoon. They may steal him from me...ha!

As you know, Uncle Stephen is a pastor. We will take Henry to his church tomorrow for his first church outing. I am so excited and pray he acts nice! We hate Randall is missing out, but it is Spring and that means craziness for our little Daddy. He is headed out to plant down south for a while. We sure miss him, but love how hard he works so we can go shop and get a haul of goodies!

I am so glad you guys had such a fun trip. Anna looks so precious. Henry looks like he loved being with his family this weekend. He is really growing right before our eyes.

I am stunned and impressed that Uncle Stephen is showing Henry the correct way to hold a two seamed fast ball. Good Coach...and we always knew he was a good preacher.

Henry's grandaddy...
and, oh yeah, Stephen's father in law.
