Bits of Texas: family

I hope y'all are having a relaxing Sunday and preparing yourselves for the rude awakening that is Monday morning.
Today I want to share some pictures from my [June] trip to Texas. I'm going to make this a little series 'cause I took so many photos. Since it's Sunday, and it's pretty common to associate Sundays with family time, this first theme of pictures will be as such.
My brother's girlfriend had a surprise photo shoot scheduled for Mikey and I to get aunt and uncle shots with our niece and nephew, Makaila & Nathan. It was the cutest thing ever! This is my favorite photo from that day.
Wonderful family photo ~ Nathan is miserable, mommy & daddy can't stop laughing
Play time with my mommy (and photo booth)
Bags under my eyes and a goofy face, but this was my first morning in town and I woke up to find Makaila in the house ~ mommy and I were babysitting her for the day (we look like twins, I think)
Getting to see this little bunny wake up from a nap 
Getting to be present for Makaila's dedication to the Lord
 
my brother & sissy
That's all for now. Mikey has a basketball game in twenty minutes! Have a lovely evening, y'all. For those fortunate enough to live near family...lucky y'all. :)

    1. I feel so bad, the photo is still not hanging on the wall *eep!* but I found an extra 8x10 frame lying around so I'll do it tomorrow! :) It's really my favorite picture in the whole world right now. Even my background on both the laptop and phone. hehe
      Thanks! I knew we looked so much alike in that pic. Can't deny those bags under our eyes. haha I've never been able to get rid of mine. I hope she's not cursed the same way.
      Mikey did very well! His team won and he even scored a 3 pointer! Yay! I was cheering the whole time. Yeah, I'm that wife. :)

    2. You definitely need to frame that photo. It is too gosh darn cute :]

      Ha, aw. I think you look just fine lady! Some people look like their eyes fell in their head, so really you don't have it bad at all. Tehehe.

      Aw. I would be the same way. Wow! Congrats to Mikey and his team!! That is so exciting.

    1. Awwiee I am seriously smiling, like big time, at the twins comment. I'm glad you agree and see it, too ;))) I can't stop looking at that picture. It's one of my favorites even though I look like death in it.
      ahahahaha that could so be taken badly, but luckily I know what you mean. I could so "eat" them too ;)
