4th of July and trips to see family

The four of us went on our first long trip as a family of four. We left on Saturday morning the 4th to go to Hawley then went to Amarillo and Lubbock, returning back home on Sunday the 12th. While in Hawley on the July 4th, mom had most of her side of the family over and some met Tatum for the first time. We had a lot of fun, playing volleyball and other outside games. Talyn loved the water slide that Papaw had set up for the boys (check out the picture above). We stayed a few more days visiting with my mom and dad before heading to Amarillo. On our way to Amarillo we stopped in Lubbock to see some friends at our old church and took Tatum to meet the Culpeppers. The Culpepper twins are so adorable and we enjoyed seeing them and Emily, sorry Tim had to work. We made our way to Amarillo and really enjoyed our visit with Todd's parents. Uncle Scott also met us there and bonded with Talyn and Tatum. We were fortunate that some of Todd's cousins and aunt and uncle Bob and Connie were able to come and visit. On Saturday, Todd's Great-Aunt Ruby turned 90 so we went to her party in Lubbock. It was wonderful being in Lubbock again and seeing the Schoenig family. Before we left we also got to see the Holloways. Hunter, now one and a half is saying many words and is the friendliest kid. We hated leaving Amarillo the next day but was ready to be back home after 9 days. The trip home was not nearly as bad as I thought it would be considering we have a 3 year old and a 2 month old. Talyn did great as normal and Tatum slept most of the time, just cried when she woke up hungry.
