so behind, it's embarrassing...

Well Hello! And no we did not fall off the face of the planet. ha. But, we have been super duper busy and never at our own house, so it's been a challenge to try and keep up with everything. I'm lucky if I get to sign on to the computer sometime during the day and most of the time I attempt to keep up with everyone by reading Facebook statuses...sad, I know, but don't act like you don't do it too. :)

Our trip to Orlando went off without a hitch! Kennady was sooooo well-behaved on both plane rides and we had so much fun with her other grandparents! They really showed us around and we did all kinds of stuff while we were there. One day, we spent at the Magic Kingdom and that was a hot and humid good time! She was really a trooper through the heat and we got to see and ride some fun stuff. We also spent an afternoon in Winter Park, a sweet and quaint little town outside of Orlando with shops and eateries and what nots. And of course, we hit up some shopping at their fabulous outlets...duh! :) We also spent some time at a little place called Celebration which is also super cute and has the best apple dumpling dessert ever!! It was delicious....I'm drooling just thinking about it. We were so happy to spend that time with Grandma Carol and Pop!

When we got back, we had a couple of days to 'rest (figuratively speaking)' before we headed to west Texas for our annual campmeeting. It's an annual family reunion/church retreat for the ranch families of west Texas. It's a time to spend together in fellowship and to praise God together in the beautiful Davis Mountains. It's was my 18th time to go and Kennady's first and we look forward to many more in the future.

Upon our return from that, we spent a couple of days in SA-town with my family before heading home, only to turn around that next weekend to go to Georgetown with my sister-in-law to be her company while she did hair for a wedding there. We had a chilled weekend going out to dinner and shopping at the outlets, Ikea, and Babies 'R Us then we headed home. So, now that we are here and getting to sleep in our own beds again (thank God), we are happy to relax and soak up what little is left of the summer.

We have officially hit the halfway point with this separation, so we can all praise the Lord for that! Congrats to Shaunna and Blake on their new addition news and I can't wait to read up on all of you guys and what you have been up to! Maybe I can get on here more often now that things have slowed down a bit. Hope all is well! :)

Hey, I just saw your message on my blog. And this may sound weird, but thanks for saying that you miss Chad and that this is rough. Sometimes I'm around the other spouses and I feel like maybe I'm the only one who feels miserable right now. It's nice to know that you're in the same boat and I'm not crazy for feeling SO sad sometimes. As weird as it is, it was kind of an encouragement to have you say that so thanks!
