Road Trip!

We survived our first road trip with 4 kids! 

I do feel like I need a t-shirt with that slogan.

About 8 hours each way to grandparents' house, but really the kids were very, very good!

The car scene:

I may or may not have insisted on a roadside stop for the cheesy Texans-in-the-bluebonnets photo.

That is the best picture we were able to get of the 4 kids after much questioning about just why were we stopping here, whining about the bugs, and squinting at the sun!

Then, while I was taking an individual picture of one child, I turned around and this had happened:

Um, it's actually illegal to pick the bluebonnets in Texas because they are the state flower, but seeing as how she's new here and all, hopefully everyone can just let it slide!

A little day-before-Easter egg hunt:

And the proverbial Easter morning we-are-all-dressed-in-our-Easter-finest-and-not-all-that-happy-about-it picture:

I hope your weekend was filled with the blessed knowledge that JESUS IS ALIVE!

Y'all that tomb was empty!

God wins.  Every. Single. Time.  Evil cannot overcome His goodness!


  1. Glad it all went well! They all look soo adorable!

  2. Oh my goodness. I LOVE the girls Easter dresses! SO PRETTY! I also am totally in love with the field of blue bonnets. I would love to see those one day!

  3. That is a major deal surviving 8 hours each way with 4 kids! Love all the shots! :)

  4. the outfits on your kids are absolutely adorable!
    I LOVE the Bluebonnet pics! If I lived in Texas, I'd be all over that ;)

  5. Amen, sister! Every time! I love your pictures! Especially the blue bonnets group shot--which they will no doubt talk and laugh about with the grandkids!


I'd love to hear what you think!
