Spring Break Party Lasted a Week

We had a pretty amazing Spring Break! Our family hopped on a plane to Arizona so we could visit my sister and her family. Papa and Mimi drove in and we had all the makings for a party! 
It was a sweet visit, but just not long enough. 
As soon as we arrived, Melissa broke out the "car wash" as the girls called it. It's a sprinkler set up with PVC pipes. The kids had a blast. We really were so thankful for the sun and warmth. It's been a very cold winter in VA with lots of time spent indoors.
Driving through the car wash!

Drinking at the car wash :)
Mimi blew bubbles for Geneva to catch.
Emma and Savannah sunbathed.
We also went for lots of walks!
Here are the men talking theology at the park. Love these solid leaders.

     Papa was loving having his granddaughters all in one place!
We played Memory
and Guess Who
and other games too!

Papa and Mimi took the 4 older girls to a water park hotel one night. The time together was filled with special memories. 
They took the girls out to dinner and got mustaches!! We heard there was a country band and the girls danced for hours!
While they were away, Geneva and I had some special time together.

My sister and I also got a date in- pedicures, lunch, and errands. It was so nice spending time together and having uninterrupted conversation!
 That night the four adults and Geneva went out for a date night. We had BBQ and G played in the fountains.
Another day we went to Riparian Reserve. It was filled with beautiful plants and birds.


Emma pushed Neva as she napped.
 Stripe sisters.


Love these knees.



After the walk, we went to a place called The Farm.
After lunch we walked a bit more of the property. 

Sweet sisters.
That afternoon we went to see Cinderella- it was sooo good!!
Papa and Mimi took us out for ice cream one night!

The morning we left Charis and Melissa made us pancakes. The James were such amazing hosts! They sacrificially served us- gave up their beds, made yummy food, and shared their toys!

Love meal time together.

Goodbyes at the airport were pretty hard. These cousins are sweet friends. 
I love watching their friendship grow.
My babies were tired when we reached VA- so much good play!
