Visit to the Valley

After Addie's last day of school, we headed to the airport that evening to fly down to visit my family.  Addie's school was closed for in-service and orientation from Thursday through Monday and Jason already had a boys weekend planned in Louisiana so a trip to the valley seemed like the perfect plan.  Unfortunately, the weather delayed our flight almost 3 hours, but Addie stayed happy playing with her books and running around our corner at the airport despite it being way past her bedtime.  We had a wonderful long weekend in Harlingen.  Thanks Mom and Dad for always making us feel so welcome.

Thursday morning, we got up early and headed out to the bay to fish.  My dad took Cale, Tasha and I out to Port Mansfield, and we ended up having a great trip.  We ended up with a full stringer of fish and had lots of laughs.  Sarah was nice enough to keep Addie for me while we were fishing, and she had a great time playing with the kids.  Thanks Sarah!!

Cale and Tasha

Tasha caught a big ole Jack fish that gave her a really fun fight.

My big red fish

I just love this one of Tasha's face when her huge black drum surfaced.  haha

Sportin' her huge catch

I caught the trifecta (red fish, trout and a flounder) for the first time in my life.  So fun!!  I credit my amazing guide.  Thanks dad!

Posing with the guide.  :)

Thursday evening, Dad took Addison swimming.  She of course loved every minute.  That baby LOVES the water.

Trying on the life jacket that was too big.  She wasn't too sure about it, but I do love the funny picture.

Friday morning we headed up to the farm to visit Grandma and Grandpa Johnson.  We spent the morning hanging out with them, and then met all the guys at lunch.  It was a great day except for Cale's car getting hit in the parking lot at the restaurant.  Sorry again Cale.  :(

Checking out the tractor with Papaw.

After lunch at the farm, we headed over to Cody and Brittany's new house to help them with a few things since they were planning to move in on Saturday.  We spent a few hours Friday evening and part of Saturday helping them get moved in and settled.  I can't wait to see pictures of the finished product.  I have no doubt Britt has the house looking adorable.

Busy girl carrying her keys and talking on the phone.  haha 

Friday evening, Cale and Dad took Addie swimming again.  That poor baby gets no attention.  :)

Sunday morning breakfast before we headed to church.

I don't know how I made it through the entire weekend without one picture of my mom (or Cody or Britt for that matter).  I promise they were there.  I am already anxious to get back down to Harlingen for another visit.  We always have the best time seeing family.  Love y'all!!
