Oh how fun for you all! That is some mighty fine hoola hooping too! I have one in the garage, need to practice up. When you mentioned Anthropologie, I nearly swooned. I love those stores, so full of quirky goodies. :-)

Such a fun time.....twister was a game I played with my children, I always loved it, as everybody could not control their laughter....

A beautiful set of photographs showing the wonderful closeness you have.....

Great times ... beatiful girls... wish I was there. Grace looks like a rag doll in that rocking chair... what was that?

You guys sure know how to pack in some stuff... you're going to need a vacation when everyone goes home.

Do some hoolas for me and give all your family a big hug, too.

love you all...
