Family Reunion 2011

We just got back from Scott's annual family reunion in beautiful Wimberly, Texas. We were able to stay the entire 4 days this time and had a blast! There is a wonderful river there that Aaron spent several hours a day in - complete with a small rapids area and a large submerged rock the kids call "Mermaid Rock." Last year Caleb did not care about getting into the water but this year he did venture out in the river some and really enjoyed himself at the pool. Aaron got really good at his swimming too with all the water time. And Leah LOVED the pool time. She was such a trooper all weekend - a crawling baby who just wants to explore is not the ideal stage for a weekend like this but she did great! She even took her 2 1/2 hour morning nap AND 2 1/2 hour afternoon nap each day and all the kids crashed hard each night (as did mommy). Aaron also sported his "explorer backpack" most everywhere he went - complete with anything he could need for exploring nature, including snacks for him and whichever cousins explored with him - he likes to be prepared! We are blessed to be a part of a family that values spending time with extended family. A fun family weekend that we look forward to each year.
