Wow, life has been busy...obviously, since I haven't posted in over a week. Not to mention that I am one week behind her monthly post, which I do intend to do...eventually. In the mean time, I thought I would post some pictures from this past weekend. We drove to San Angelo to visit my sister and her husband. It was a 6 and 1/2 hour drive which is the longest drive Elliott has been on so far. She actually did really well...some fussiness, but I get fussy in a 6+ hour drive. We did a little bit of light reading...
played with a Nalgene bottle...
and lots of other fun things, but needless to say, we were ALL thankful to get there. We had a really fun time, and I was really impressed with San Angelo. Yes, there were lots of rock lawns, cactuses, mesquite trees, and it was 97 degrees already, but it was really a nice town. I said it reminded me of a little San Antonio.
It was really great to spend some time with my sis and brother-in-law and see their new house.
Elliott loved seeing her aunt. Anja was excited too.
Anja was determined to get a picture with Elliott smiling/looking at the camera. We resorted to holding rose petals in front of her...it didn't work. Anja got some good pics with her camera but I was just taking pictures with my phone.
I did catch a sweet moment between Kev and Elliott. She loves her daddy!
We also took a little family pic.
Oh, and did I mention we FINALLY bought a car. I actually blogged about looking for a car, oh, over a YEAR ago, and we finally got around to buying one. We decided on a Honda Pilot. We like the fact that it is a little bigger, little more room. It's used, but I can honestly say it's the nicest care I've ever owned. I feel nervous to drive it. Plus we're planning on it being Elliott's first car so I better keep it in good shape. :) Here is a few pics of it.
