Family Frenzy

The past 6 days have been a fabulous whirlwind of family togetherness. Last week my brother and sister-in-law flew in from Seattle for their first Omaha visit. We spent a couple of days hanging out and catching up before the four of us piled in the car and made the 7 hour drive to Peoria, IL. Then we spent Saturday at a family reunion with my dad's side of the family and then went to my mom's house on Sunday. Monday morning we piled back in the car and drove straight to the Omaha airport so Ryan and Haley could head back to Seattle. Whew!

Here are some highlights from our time in Omaha.

Pedestrian bridge!

Check out the sunset during our drive to Illinois. Gorgeous (and this photo is un-altered)!

The reunion on Saturday was held at a beautiful park in Chillicothe, IL right along the river. And what's a family reunion without croquet? I don't want to brag but I did win.

My grandma, organizer and star of the show.

There's never a shortage of wine! And this was before dinner.

That's all for now! Today I am back to work and very busy uploading, editing, ordering, and mailing. So if you are waiting on something from me, just know that I am working on it : )
