We had a wonderful time with family while Steve attended Shepherds' Conference. We hung out with Grandpa Paul (my Dad) pictured above with Luke, next is my Uncle Brad and my cute boy. Luke even got a special meeting with the mayor (my Aunt Mary)!
Nana (my mom) & Papa Tex treated us, Great Grandma Ardis, and Jill (SIL) & Koen (cute nephew!) to a day at the Fresno zoo. Last time we were there Ava was 6 months old, so it was really fun seeing her excited to see all the different animals. She was not so keen on feeding the giraffes though! She did inform me that "when I'm a big girl I won't be afraid of the giraffes."
I also got to eat my Momma's great cooking, enjoy my grandma's wonderful hospitality, and eat at the best Mexican Restaurant in the world. That was especially fun as it was just my cousins and siblings without all our crazy parents around! (have to say that to see if any of them are reading this :-) But alas, the trip was over way to quickly, so come visit us soon!
