Labor Day

This is late, but better late than never, right?

We headed east (a little) to a small town outside of Shreveport for the long Labor Day weekend. Gabe has an uncle, Jerry, who lives out that way and my MIL wanted to spend her birthday weekend with the family at Jerry's house. We are so glad we went. It was our first time to visit their new home that they spent so much time building, painting, and decorating. It is just gorgeous and so relaxing! Gabe's cousin, Sunny, (who we have not seen since our wedding) came by to visit and meet our precious Brody. Her name couldn't fit her more perfectly. She is such a positive, happy girl...we wish she lived a little closer so we could see her more often.

Attempted a tractor ride, but Brody wasn't having any of it!

We (or just about everyone but me) had a blast on the four-wheeler. It looked like a lot of fun, but not sure it was the best thing for me to ride being so pregnant! Next time for sure!
Brody's first ride with Jerry and Bella - LOVED IT!

Brody and Bella played croquet. Well, sort of.

We hung out on the porch and outside a lot.

We ate some delicious food and had great conversation. A few of the girls took a side trip to Shreveport to do a little Sunday shopping and had a great visit with one of my MIL's sisters and her family. They have two beautiful daughters who are in college (Baylor and Missouri). Turns out one of them is a sorority sister of mine! Kinda fun!

Overall we had a fabulous time. Brody was having so much fun he didn't want to take naps and/or sleep at night. He LOVED every second of being out side and riding the four-wheeler. We are so thankful for the generous hospitality of the Journey family.

Can't wait to go back soon!
