Family Fun

We had a great day yesterday, all the kids under one roof, for a short time anyway. Our daughter and son-in-law are pictured here in the front row; their son, our precious grandson, is behind them being held by our son, Kyle. Our daughter-in-law, Leigh Anna, is trying to keep Hannes from smothering Mason with kisses. It's hard to get a good, steady shot of either Mason or Hannes, they each move too entirely fast! Kyle was able to come home from Texas for the holiday weekend and an all-too-short reunion. I miss him again already! We had a great noontime meal together, my mother-in-law joined us too; before long it was time for goodbyes, and everyone had returned to their own homes. I shouldn't have blinked! I settled down with Sundance for a few hours of quilting after the dishes were done and the laundry was folded, it seemed entirely too quiet in this house without them all! As far as I am concerned, we need to start planning our next get-together already.
Life is Good!

Great family picture. So glad you got to spend time with them all.
I just have to say I love the wall color and the peek of the quilt in the background.

It is so hard now a days to get everyone together in one place even for a few hours - how great that you were all able to be together.

How is Kyle making out there in Texas all by himself? Is Texas a long way from where you are?

Happy planning your next event!! We have a long weekend the first weekend in August here in Canada - I will let you borrow that one for your next get together if you like - since it is sooner than Labour Day. It is called B.C. day here in B.C. but I think other provinces call it other things :))

How good to glimpse "our" children! They all look wonderful & happy to be together & at "home". Thanks for sharing & so promptly. (Mason's growing so quickly-just precious! Your quilt in your stairway caught my attention-delightful colors.)

Beautiful family picture spot on the stairsteps...how perfect that Kyle was able to be there with the whole group! I know that must have been very special to have them all together! Look at that Mason, the star of the show! Let's think will Labor Day be the next time together OR maybe declare your own holiday...call it *family weekend*..sounds good huh?

What lovely photos of your good-looking family! How the time does fly when you're all together. I know when I'm visiting the kids, it's all a busy blur.
