Vacationing in Poky

We took our traditional trip to Poky during Kev's school break (our very last school break...woot woot). The girls LOVED seeing Grandma, and we crammed in some fun.

Grandma Lou did her thing and made the girls adorable matching dresses. I wish I could have inherited the sewing gene.

Celebrated Sophie's birthday. I had dreams of a beautiful party spread, but I lacked the motivation and energy to tackle it. Instead my mom made the cake and birthday dinner...yeah for moms.

Hiking with cousins

...and boating

Happened to be in town while Extreme Home Makeover was doing an episode. I ran into/stalked my favorite bachelorette (and new best friend) of all time...Jillian! She'll remember me as the one with the kid who was picking her nose...nice.

Fit in a round of golf (also a tradition...cramming in a years worth of dates since Grandma offers to babysit).

golfing partners

Good times.

Your mom is amazing. I love love those dresses! So cute. I'm jealous you were in Poky, glad you had so much fun. We need to start planning our yearly mother/daughter lunch over Christmas. :) Miss you.
