I'm back!

15 hours of travel (at least 8 in the car, 6 on the plane)
14 kids under 18
10 number of times I thought I was going to pass out from the heat
5 number of times I attempted to hide from relatives only to be spotted because of the glass elevators in the middle of the hotel (no where to hide I tell ya!)
3 nights of sleepovers with my sister (aka gossiping about the rest of the family)
2.5 Krispy Kreme donuts consumed
2 stops at Sonic (wish we had one here!)
1 unforgettable, whirlwind reunion weekend with the whole family!

This is the only photo I took the whole weekend (several relatives used fancy cameras to document the weekend). It pretty much sums up most of the weekend: coming back from the lake (nothing like 108 degrees!), stuck in the very back of the mini van. I am smiling because what else are you going to do when it is 500 degrees out and you are smushed into a van and driving around because the driver (my dad) decides to take a "scenic" drive?

I truly had a wonderful time in Missouri. The heat was awful but I loved spending time with relatives I rarely see. No matter how crazy, there is nothing like family! And yes, I did sneak off to see Magic Mike with my sister ;)


  1. Dang it lol! I need to see Magic Mike but everyone already has haha!

    Glad you had a great time at the reunion.

    Thanks for linking up :)

  2. How was Magic Mike??? I can't wait to see it! Glad you had a great trip. xo

  3. So true! I'm jealous you saw Magic Mike! Can't wait to see it:) Love checking in on your blog-you make me laugh!

  4. Sounds like you had a lot of fun! When you don't remember to take any pictures that usually means you were too busy having a good time! Curious to know what you thought of Magic Mike, I def have my opinion :) Thanks for linking up!

  5. I have been to Sonic three times since I have been home on the east coast visiting family. I literally cannot get enough diet cherry limeaids in my life!!

    glad you had a fun trip (and I cannot wait to see Magic Mike) ah!

  6. Haha, glad you had a fun time in the midwest! And I definitely need to get to Magic Mike, haha. :)

  7. I saw Magic Mike last night and I loved it so much. It cracked both me and my boyfriend up!

  8. Oh my gosh...I love the attempts at hiding from your relatives. Stupid glass doors! And 2.5 Krispy Kreme's? How does someone only eat half? I didn't think that was physically possible.

    Thanks for linking up!

  9. Welcome back!! Be on the lookout for something in the mail from me!

  10. Sounds like fun! That kind of heat isn't a good time, but I think finding ways to beat it is!
