Our trip to Texas

A few weeks ago we went to Texas for our friend, Rachel Hale's wedding.
On the drive down...Steven, Anna, and David watching a funny video

We stopped at the Hales' for a few minutes when we first got into town.

Jonathan and David stayed at the Hale's to help out with chores during the weekend...

...and the rest of us stayed with Mr. and Mrs. Beeman.  We had such a wonderful time with them!

We loved being able to spend some time with these dear friends!

After the wedding on Saturday the Hales had several families over for the evening.  We were having so much fun enjoying our friends and holding babies that we didn't take many pictures, but here are a few.

Anna's Texas Baby Shower

While we were in Texas, Hope and Mrs. Beeman had a baby shower for Anna and baby Eva.
As you can see, it was a lot of fun!
