My husband doesn’t get to see his family very often, so for spring break we decided to drive to Texas.

Along the way I have family in Tulsa, Oklahoma City and the Ft Worth area…so a drive to Texas means a stop to visit with my family too – win.

Our families roll out the red carpet and there is always good food, clean beds and good company.

Since we have returned from our trip, my almost three year old is now calling every older person he sees either, “KoKo, Grampa,  and Gregre.” It cracks me up.

We drove up to my Aunt Kathy’s (KoKo’s) house around 9:30pm on a Friday night and she and Grandad were up and had a lovely dinner waiting – we partied till 1:30am. The next morning, I met my brother, Aunt Colleen and cousins Max and Miranda for smoothies at Jamba Juice (Auntie C’s treat).  When we got back to Koko’s house, she had a large brunch getting ready.

Part of the expense of road trips is hotel and food – check, check. Blessings.

By the time Miss B stopped crying, Wiley was done. He had to go ruin his Sunday clothes, peace out.

We got to Danny’s grandparent’s home Saturday evening.  Both boys were desperate to get out of their chairs.

Sunday, we went to my in-law’s Ward in Cleveland, Texas (which is always a good visit). Unless you’ve been to Cleveland, Texas for your LDS worship needs, you don’t know what you’re missing.

After church and dinner, we had a lovely afternoon with friends and family.

I spent the majority of my day taking photos…too many to post.

My mother in law is so photogenic.

Grandchildren, baby goats, Danny Quadcopters, family photos, it was kind of a perfect day.

Yep, perfect day.
