The night before we left San Marcos, we had a very special family gathering. It was the perfect wrap up of our fun, family-filled summer. We tried to keep it very light spirited although I knew that it would be hard to be away from them and was on the verge of tears all night until Dax and Sanam announced they had to leave and all my emotions came blubbering out. I simply couldn't let the gathering end without expressing my love and gratitude for them. The littlest kids were upstairs but the oldest kids joined the adults as we shared our thoughts and love for each other. It was a night I will never forget. My family gives me so much strength. It has been so great to have Chels here and I can't wait to be reunited with the rest of them next week!
Here are some precious pictures from that last family gathering:
Sure Love Ya!
(I will have to explain this picture and caption in a separate post)
The last picture is kind of fuzzy but I love it. This picture is my happy place...there is no place I would rather be than surrounded by my family. The only thing missing from this picture is Chels and her family. Also, my mom's husband Ric, who was taking the picture : )
