Flashback Friday


Flashing back this week to nearly two years ago when my sister, Amy, and I along with our daughters, Grace and Maddy, went on a Dis*ney cruise with our Aunt and cousins. It was loads of fun! Yes, we left the Hubs and other kids (boys) at home -- it was a girls trip and we need to do those more often! Grace is the closest in age cousin of Maddy's -- all the other cousins are quite a bit older. Mad and Grace have fun together and are about 2-1/2 years apart in age. Unfortunately, Amy and her family live in Florida and we are in Nebraska, so we don't get to see each other too often.

Grace is very special to me as I traveled with Amy in 2000 to China to meet Grace. What an incredible journey! And now that sweet 9 month old baby that I met in March 2000 will turn 10 years old in June. We will be spending a week in July at Hilton Head with Amy's family and Group 182 travel group -- a very special group of people and their amazing children. I can hardly wait!

Pirate Night -- ARGHH Matey!!!

Love this flashback. How wonderful that you traveled with your sister and that Maddie has a cousin adopted form China.

Travel group reunions are great!
