288–Texas Trip–Day 4

Everyone has slipped off to bed and I’m in “my room” at the K’s typing my last post from this trip.  I told Kale tonight while we were cooking supper that I always get in a funk on the last day of seeing them because I dread being apart again.  He reminded me that he’ll be home soon and (even though it’s not the same when Kayla can’t come) that makes me feel a little better.

But, here’s my recap of our last day here…

Kale started the day by making pancakes for breakfast – with a little help from the cutest thing in feet pajamas…

Every once in a while she’d run off and check on her “friends”…

(She was saying, “say cheese, baby girl” in the picture above. Haha!)

Kayla had to go to work at noon and we all hung out here.  After Maddie’s nap her and Kale used the water hose in the back yard for a while.  That was the most fun she had all day. (You can’t tell much from the picture.)

They also did puzzles…

Kale and I made a quick trip to the grocery store this afternoon.  We made tacos for supper and I made brownies for dessert (to go with our ice cream).

After the dishes were done and the ice cream and brownies were attacked… the guys settled in the living room for “American Pickers” and “Pawn Stars” and us girls got cozy in the bedroom and watched “The Bachelor” together.  We did more talking and laughing than anything. (Kale called us the cacklers.)

(Have I mentioned how much I love having daughters???)

We get up bright and early in the morning for our 7:30 flight home.  (ICK!)  So, I’m off to bed.

Thank you, Lord, for allowing us to get here despite all that snow and for the beautiful weather we’ve had… but most of all, thank You for my precious family that I love with my whole heart! You are so good.

So much fun! I LOVE Maddie's footed p.j.'s and the fact that she had coats on her new friends!

I'm pretty sure Kale is ready for one of these sweet little girls of his own! :)

Praying for your travels today and for the goodbyes.
