A Little Visit In The Rock

It is always a beautiful view from Aunt Suzy's kitchen. She lives in Little Rock and the back of her house over looks the Arkansas River. Growing up, it was always one of my favorite places and it is fun to watch it become one of our kids favorite places. Watching Henry and Mawmaw look at birds was super cute. I also appreciated a moment to catch my breath. He was a wild one on this day.

Mawmaw and UD came to Arkansas to visit everyone. I was not sure if I would be able to make it but the morning of the gathering I decided I was going, so Henry and I loaded up and showed up without anyone knowing. I called them from Aunt Suzy's driveway. It was fun.

I like to show a little sass with my folks and you can always count on one of Vera's girls to have a hat or wig to model. My great-grandmother raised some sassy girls. It carries on with me.

Sitting around the table with all the girls was so fun. I just got to squat for a few minutes at a time while chasing Henry up and down the stairs all day. It was great fun to see everyones faces and touch them for a second. I look forward to the days when I can sit a spell and visit at length again. I count this wild time with a 3 year old as joy though. It makes for funny memories. What a blessing to have this family to call my own.
