Visiting Family

During the holidays we had a couple of day road trips to visit Neil's Maw Maw's and his aunt, Mary Ellen. Claire and Eden had a great time visiting! Claire was such a sweetheart climbing right next to them and soaking in some cuddle time. Their presence can brighten anyone's day!

Our first stop was George West - about 2 hours south. Here is Claire with Maw Maw and the necklace Claire made her!

The best group shot we could get with Eden =)
Neil's mom and dad went with us so Mimi took the girls to the field next door to investigate the hay rolls!

So cute!
Mimi and Claire using their muscles!
Couldn't resist these two pics of our cutie pa-tootie!
A few days later it was off to Kerrville for lunch with Maw Maw Springer! We went to eat some Chinese cuisine, visited the art museum and strolled a bit downtown. Can't wait to go picnic by the river when the weather gets nicer in the spring!
We are so blessed to have family live so close. Being a military family growing up, we ended up far from our extended family so I didn't even know what it was like to be around my grandmothers, aunts, uncles, cousins - I don't ever want to take for granted what a blessing it is to be just a drive away. We need to make the commitment to visit them more often!
