Bright and early the morning after the last day of school Tom and Ella where on a plane headed to Texas
Sami was so upset that she couldn't go this time she ended up in Mommy and Daddy's bed.
COUSINS! This is what it's all about.
|Winning Papa's heart all over again, one giggle at a time.|
|She is the BEST big cousin ever!|
|Ella got some turquois jewelry, wanting earrings most of all. Big deal for her and her sensory issues.|
Daddy is calling this her summer of 'brave'
|I can't believe he did this. Crazy Papa's will do anything to make Sweeties happy.|
|Look at her new boots. Can't say much for the rest of her outfit though. LOL|
There is always water fun in Texas!
There was a flea market and they got some pretty cool stuff from Mexico. I can't believe they found so many things other than what we did when I was there to do.

Keeping busy in Maryland too
|Strawberries, whip cream and sweet peas and she ate it!|
|Looking for ants, part of treating his phobia, poor guy.|
Oh! and Charlie and Michele finally made it back to Ohio for a day to get their things out of storage. It has been more than a year and a half!
Thanks Natalie for getting us such great seats.
|Then Thomas showed up in Texas too, Just in time for Father's Day.|
The men requested sea food. So they went to a local place
Ella added to her summer of 'Brave" by eating seafood, including raw oysters and crawfish.
and in Maryland
|Donuts at church with a friend.|
|Natalie second on the left. She is so talented.|
Tom shared Lily's room with her the same as I did when I was there. It's such a treat to watch this sweet little face sleeping. He held her before he left and kissed that sweet face but she slept right through it. Papa loves you Sweetie. He headed back to Maryland minus one suitcase after a rough flight and Thomas stayed for a couple of extra days with Ella.
