Little Mo River

Brian and I are fortunate enough to have kept up with some really close friends that we grew up with.....literally, we all grew up together, started elementary together, high school, and the girls all went off and went to college together.  Now that we all have our own families it makes it a little bit more difficult to get together.  Thankfully Chip and Shannon planned this weekend for us at a family cabin they have on the Little Missouri River....It was gorgeous, relaxing, and just wonderful!!
It was Chip & Shannon, Brian & I, Lacey & Brent, Liz & Lucas, and Tara & Justin.
We played catch up and just enjoyed being together.
Here was our view from the cabin.

It was shallow and just perfect for a river chair and relaxation.


It was Shannon's 32nd birthday so we surprised her that evening with a birthday cake and gifts!  We love you Shan!

Chip being Chip.....

Brian and I have such a strong friendship with these 2...always have and always will!!  Great weekend guys...can't wait for the next one!

Still Blogging!'s been almost a month since I have made a blog post....yes, I'm slacking.  Hopefully I can pick it up a bit.  The summer is closing in on me and now it's time to get ready for school.  Avery will be starting kindergarten this year at the school I teach at.  I'm so excited for him!  We have been doing and doing most of the summer.  Mainly visiting family and enjoying being together. 
Avery loving on his Aunt Cacky

Jackson, Avery, Uncle Jeff, and Sutton riding!

We've gone to the river some.....

Aunt Amber, Uncle Steven, and the boys!

This past weekend, we went to Lake Erling to see my dad and grandparents....Amber, Steven, & Mabry met us there and stayed also.  We had fun.....Brian and Steven caught over 100 pounds of fish!

My grandfather is a doctor and practiced for years and years in DeQueen where we all grew up.  Something really cool is that he delivered Brian, Amber, & Steven.  We had to get a picture of him with his (now grown babies) that he delivered over 30 years ago.

There's nothing like family....

A Little Bit of Fun

This is the last post on Florida....I promise!!  We had some fun riding rides, go carts, and doing the Skyflier!! 

Brody and I decided to do the Skyflier!  It was probably one of the coolest things I've ever done!  I would sooooo do it again.

Florida Part 2

Here are some of  the "off" the beach pictures....We had fun during the day on the beach, but just as much fun in the evenings!

If you are in the Destin area, this restaurant is our absolute favorite!!!  It is called McGuire's Irish Pub....the BEST food!


One evening we went to Harbor Village and rented a seat on the Sea Blaster to go out on the ocean to watch the fire works.  It was great!

Here are a few photos from my phone so they're not all that great.

Breakfast on the balcony....

Just a few more to come!!
