California

This weekend we took a short trip to California to say goodbye to my sister Elizabeth before she leaves on her mission (she is going to the Maryland Baltimore area.)
On Sunday, as I was sitting in our worship service, listening to three of my brothers and my dad sing a hymn, it occurred to me that as hard as the move has been for our family, (and it has been difficult,) the fact that we were able to share this weekend with my family, and that I could have Elliott and my kids there with me too, has made the move worth it.  It is so nice to be close enough to family that we can spend the weekend with them!
A few pictures from Sunday:

 The original crew.

 What we have grown to be.

 A Classic!  Haha. The kids with Grandma and Grandpa.

Sisters.

What a great looking crew! So...would the difficulty of the move have anything to do with creepy crawlies? And, are they all gone???

Great family pictures! Elizabeth looks young but ready to take on Baltimore. Good luck to her ! Lauren

Elizabeth said...

It's weird that there are only four sisters. Tell Lauren that even though I look young I will probably be among the older sisters!

We're delighted you live so close to us now. Seems that we're more of a family. And that I'll never move out of state! ha
