Labor Day Weekend!

So this past weekend we spent 15 hours in the car..but we also spent time with some pretty great people! Here are our weekend adventures!

First stop: Lipan, Texas to visit with the Garrett family, who came to New Day in April! Alex grilled some amazing jalapeno poppers and chicken!

The boys playing video games

Hanging out with Vanessa

Girls playing "let's dress up the poor dog!"

Supper time!

Next stop: Amarillo, Texas! We got to visit the famous Big Texan Restaurant!

We had a get-together with past volunteer team members - here, Blu is telling the rabbit story....again....

Bobby grilling out some awesome burgers!

Cambree with her new friends Landry & Harper

We were blessed (and spoiled!) by Bob & Debra!

One of my elementary school friends, Rachel, came to see us at Coulter Road Baptist Church!

Jan & Blu hanging out

We had to go and see the famous Cadillac Ranch!

Making her mark!

Sweet Cason

Caedmon Loves Mama - be still my heart!

Last Stop: Welch, Texas to spend some time with my best friend Whitney and her entire family! Andrew, the 3rd grill master of the weekend, also made amazing burgers & jalapeno poppers! Ya'll...it's Texas. Grilling out is what we do!

I have no pics of Andrew at the grill because it was about 400 degrees and I refused to go outside until it was time to leave!

The awesome Papa Ben!

Bethany, Whitney's little sister and one of my bridesmaids back in the day, taking her first bite of grilled onion (she doesn't eat ANY fruit or vegetables..)

She wasn't impressed...

Blu hanging with Baby Owen (Andrew's youngest)...let's not get any ideas, shall we??

Meanwhile, in other parts of the world...Blu's brother Cloud's family - love this pic!!

After a week of the dentist, soccer practice, gymnastics, some time on the lake, and plenty of homework, the next stop for the Tidwells is Rotan, Texas! Have a great week!
