Toledo Bend Time 3!

On Sunday morning, Heather and Jason prepared to head home from Toledo Bend, but before they did, we took this picture of 9 of the 11 Brinker grandkids! #blessingoverload

The three newest babies!
 
Cutie Callie!

 
Meggie and Emory drove down to spend the day with us!  Here is Emory, looking beautiful as always!

 
She and Baby Brother got to spend some time playing together!


Sneaking Grant's paci!  Hahaa!!

Sweet Mommy with her baby!


The weather was cool, the sky was blue, the waves were crashing quickly on the shore... what a wonderful day!

Another one of my favorite pictures from the weekend!

That night, Wade and I took our kids and walked down to the pier to watch the sun set over Texas.





Seriously??  Could a sun set any more spectacularly??


Heading back inside, to what we thought would be a relaxing evening together..

Sadly, it turned into a night of coughing, congestion, and fever for Savannah and we spent the night comforting her. :((  Needless to say, Baby Grant came down with the same infection a few days later.. probably because of THIS picture! :/ Ahh!

Monday morning, we took one last stroll around the resort before heading home.


Meg, only you know how disastrous this really is!!!!! Hahaha!!!  Near death experience on the golf cart??  Yes, please! ;)  But isn't he the cutest??



Gotta love those selfie pics.

Until next time, Toledo Bend!  We will be back! :))

And a few days later, I made homemade bread.  Doesn't fit with this post, but I didn't want to write up a post with just these two pictures!! Anyways, I was super proud!!

They aren't Jen's or my mom's rolls yet, but I'll keep practicing!!  And you can bet that when I do make them that light and fluffy, they will DEFINITELY be getting a post of their own.  ;)

Toledo Bend Time - 2!

Good morning, sunshine!!!  Saturday morning, we woke up all together in Toledo Bend and got ready for a day of hiking trails, riding the golf cart, fishing off the dock and frying shrimp, fish, and fries (say that three times fast! Ha!!) for dinner!
Pops with his Baby Kate:

 
 Out on a walk through the Prayer Garden!


Hiking some trails..

..and reaching the outlook point!




Grammie and Pops with all the grandbabies... minus our Carson, Gavin, and Luke!

 


Brother stole Uncle Jase's walking stick!

We then went out to the pier where all the kids got to stick their feet in the lake! How fun!
Here's Rylie:

Callie:

Andrew:

Wading in!!







Baby Grant, however, stayed in the cabin, watched a little football, and drifted off to sleep just like this..
such a man! ;)



Must have been a good game! ;)

After a nap, we headed to the pool for Grant and Kate's first time to swim!


It was a little cold for Baby Kate!







You know how much Grammie loves her little kitties!!

Since Jason is allergic to cats, he told Heather that this was the closest she was going to get to owning a cat! Hahaa!!
 
Heading to the dock before the sun set!


 
And look at what Wadie had ready for us when we got there!

Can you see Callie's fish on the ground?!

Holding her fish in her hand.. what a brave girl!

The boys fished..

...while I snapped pics. ;)

Hezzy's turn!

Look at what Jason caught!!  A catfish!!!


And right before we left, Heather caught a fish!!!!

Cute little family, fish and all!

Callie loves her littlest cousin!
 
To be continued. ;)
