"Weekend Outing"

My family gets together a lot.
I think we are blessed that way!
Well, actually I think we are blessed in a lot of ways,
but I digress...
Anyway, my sister and her family, my family, and my mom and dad eat supper together probably 4 out of 7 nights a week, sometimes more! My NaNa usually comes over too.
We don't get together with my brother and his family quite as much because of their work schedules, but we have been trying to get together on the weekends with them more.
The last 2 times we've met up, we've ended up at Stix. We all LOVE it! The kids love the show, we love the food, and we always get a table to ourselves because of our large group.

Me and my little family!

This was one of the first nights this Fall
when it was actually cool enough for me
to accessorize Ava and Archer
in some of their new winter clothing.

I know, the blue in the hat just makes his eyes POP!
Notice Ava's boots with the fur and her cute leggings.
Just such a handsome little man in his Mr. Roger's sweater.
Ava is showing him some love...

Ava likes to play "Hide and Seek" between the pillars at Stix.

Chad and his wife, Jenny, and baby girl, Teagan.

Teagan having a little fun with Daddy.
There were a few other people with us on this trip who somehow dodged the camera. My Mom and Dad were with us, and also baby Charlie(my mom was keeping him). After we all get stuffed on some good food, we have to make our way over to some of our favorite stores...Target, Ross, and JCPenny. You may think that going and doing things with this much family and a large number of kids wouldn't be any fun, but we've gotten adjusted. Sometimes the outings can get a little stressful, but there is always someone around to give you a hand! Family is such a blessing! I don't know what I would do without the love and support that I get from these guys.


  1. I love your son's sweater! Where did you get it?

    It looks like your gonna have your hands full with your daughter in a few years. She is such a cutie!!

  2. We wouldn't have it anyother way! Each of our children and spouses and grandchildren are our blessings from up above!!!And Heather, Trisha already has her hands full with Ava!!! But I always tell Trisha it is a good hands full.

  3. what cute pictures...I have a great giveaway on both my blogs that will be given away this weekend....and all you have to do is hope you will stop by.

  4. i got archer's sweater at a consignment sale(along with everything else they are wearing), but its originally from Children's Place.
