Our Little Family of Three

The other side of the family

It has been so fun! Travis' parents have been out here visiting for the last three weeks and his sister, Kahli, and her son, Kellan, also came out for a week. Tomorrow my parents-in-law are leaving. I'm sad to see them go! We honestly have so much fun when they're out here!! The good news is that we'll see them in a little over a month. Nic, Ash, Trav, and I are going out to Minnesota for the first half of July. It will be so nice. I love Minnesota. It's my home away from home. It's soooo beautiful. However, I haven't experienced a winter season out there. I hear that's not so beautiful. :(

It has been so nice to see Kahli and cute little Kellan. The last time I saw him he wasn't even a year and now he's three! He's such a handsome little guy. He has such a cute personality too...like mother like son! He's a doll. I don't have pictures (I forgot my camera) but we're meeting up tomorrow. I'll be sure to snap a few photos' only proving how cute he is!

Kahli looks great too! I have always thought she is beautiful. And she is known for her teasing personality. The first time we saw her, this visit, she flipped us off. It was funny! She's so spunky and such a fun person to be around. I have admired her sense of humor since day one.

It was funny, Marin told us tonight that we "shouldn't even try" to beat Kahli when it comes to teasing because she always wins. I think Marin was speaking from experience. Kahli has the reputation of winning...so I'm not surprised!

One of many things I truly enjoy is how much fun the Braun family has together. The Braun family is into board games, card games, and dice games. They always have a game going on. I love that! It's rubbed off because I've started the gaming thing with my family. I can't think of anything, really, that's more fun than sitting around a table, playing a game with the fam, laughing and talking?!

I'm so grateful for my husband and his family. I know I lucked out when it comes to my in-laws. They are so down to earth. They are so kind and compassionate. They really are wonderful people. I have a lot of admiration for them. I have looked to their example in many ways. I feel I have been refined and improved by knowing, observing, and talking with them. I know I'm not always the best daughter/sister-in-law. I have a lot to work on. I am grateful for their patience and belief in me and my dreams/goals.

(sigh)...It's been great to have Travis' family around. I would only change two things about their visit:

1) We could have spent more time with them
2) John, Dillyn, Nolan, and Katie could have come out
