The Mix-Up

We are back from a little 2 week hiatus.

My car is filthy.

There is no food in our home.

And it is a little strange - everything's so still and so quiet. No more slamming doors to wake my precious baby (love you Darren).

Growing up in Nevada I had a love for the desert. When I married a boy from California he (after great debate) convinced me that my state was nothing but a barren wasteland, but on this trip we rediscovered the beauty of the Great Basin together. There really is nothing quite like it.

We also rediscovered cousins and babies,

co-napping,

my brothers (minus one),

and that PopRocks are the very best way to cure the Car Trip Coops.

More to come...

I love that picture of all you and your brothers. I still feel really guilty that we didn't get to hang out more!

Glad you had a great visit. I'm a little disappointed that I didn't run into you at wal-mart though... ;)
I forgot how big your family is and how out numbered you were. Im just glad you made it through your childhood with all those brothers.
Happy New Year Haley!

Looks like you all had a fantastic trip. You and your brothers look so fun together! D loves the photos of the girls with pop rocks, he wonders why there are two A's.
Hope you have a happy New Year!

Love it. Now it is time to recuperate and clean the car...?
I have a feeling my girls will seem like yours at some point, Older will be more prim of a big sis and the younger will just sit in the sink testing toothpastes (my fav post!), making random things happen and napping passed out, living unabashedly... Can't wait.
