We're off to Dallas

The girls from my SMU small group that are still in Dallas... plus the new additions!

The weekend after our trip up to Door County, we packed up and flew down to Dallas for our friend's wedding. My good friend, Ashley, let us stay with her and her husband in their chalet in the Park Cities. They have a really lovely home, and we couldn't have asked for better hospitality.

Even though it was a quick trip, and we would have liked to have done more and seen more people, I did manage to get in some girl time with my old SMU small group girls (at least the ones that are still in Dallas). It was sweet to have LE meet baby McKinley, though LE clearly did not like her. We had a quick, girlie luncheon on Ashley's back porch before John, LE, and I headed off to the airport.

Ted and Kimberly's wedding was a lot of fun, especially since one of my small group friends, Meg, was there, too. John was a groomsman in the wedding, which meant that I got some good one on one time with Meg while John was off doing groomsman things.

Even though Dallas is a little too uppity for me, I truly enjoy visiting. It represents my college years, the great fellowship shared, and memories that I fondly remember. It's always a trip I look forward to, and I wish I could afford to go back more.

LE really loves McKinley, can't you tell?

We tried again a little bit later. No luck. Look at her pointing.

  1. The pictures of LE and McKinley made me laugh so hard! I wonder what it was about another baby that made LE upset. So funny.
