Girls Reunion in Myrtle Beach

The sisters

We thought it was a great idea to have Mom, the sisters and the sisters-in-laws get together for some female bonding time, so we instituted the Girls Reunion. This was the first time we did it and Shannon volunteered to host at her beautiful home in Myrtle Beach. Mom, Amber and Anne came for the first couple of days and Kendall and I stayed for the rest of the week. (Lori couldn't make it because she just had beautiful baby Jenna on July 7th.) We pretty much just stayed up super late every night talking. Of course when we got the late-night munchies, we whipped up a batch of Andes mint cookies and ate while we talked:) We swam in the neighborhood pool and played beauty salon with Kendall cutting and coloring everyone's hair. It was a really good time and hopefully we'll do it every year now. Also, Keegan seriously couldn't get enough of baby Harper. He wanted to hold her every chance he got. He'll make a great big brother some day!

Papa's Visit

Relaxing in the river

Potty break

Keegan really loved the caves!

With Papa at Bandelier

Dad came and visited us for the week in between Rocky Point and the Girls Reunion. We decided to take a trip to Bandelier National Park to visit the cave dwellings of the native Americans from that region. It was really hot, but we had a good time. Keegan had to pee like five times while we were there, and of course, there weren't any restrooms, so we had to improvise! After we hiked to the caves, we found a little stream to soak our feet in and relax for a little while - it felt so nice. We also went to Old Town to show Dad some of the little shops and churches in downtown Albuquerque. It was a nice visit and we were glad that he could come.
