The Wrap Up

July 26 and 27.

The last two days of our vacation were perhaps the quietest. The first surprise was we bowed out of church. I just wanted to sleep in, and let my body decide when it was time to wake up. I even went as far as to buy mini muffins and milk for our breakfast so we wouldn't have to worry about making the breakfast deadline.

Since we didn't go to church, we dove into our scriptures and read for about 30 minutes. Shortly after that, our phone rang with an invitation to breakfast. We also bowed out of that one as we were still in our jammies and not showered. It was nice to be lazy after all the running around we had been doing. We met up with the rest of the family after they came back from breakfast.

We went and saw G-Force as our last full family outing. Afterward,we said our first goodbyes before lunch. Michele, Denise, Georgia and Jack were headed back to Dallas. We hated to see them go. It was a lot of fun and a lot of laughs. The kids were definitely going to miss each other. And the kids that stayed behind would also be missing Aunt Micki and Aunt Denise.

The next day consisted of taking Ryan to the Build-A-Bear factory where he built his first "bear." He chose a Jack Russell Terrier. He was a bit overwhelmed by the whole experience, but in the end he was happy to have done it. Next some swim time, and then dinner at Willie's once again. After dinner we had one more birthday to celebrate, Erin's.

All in all it was a fun and action-packed adventure of a vacation. We truly needed a vacation from our vacation.
