Where have all the Edwards gone?

That's where.
We decided to take a trip to Arkansas to visit Chris's parents. Originally it was just going to be Chris, but we decided to make it a family affair. We went to help his parents put in laminate flooring (with a partial bathroom remodel thrown in for kicks and giggles). The drive wasn't bad and the kids were fantastically behaved. Chris's Sister and brother were there for a couple of days while we were and it was nice to visit with them as well. After the flooring was done we got to have some fun.

The almost finished product

This is the road Chris's parents live on, and the reason he thought we should spell Dalin's name with only one "L".

Old Mill park.
My sweet sister in law was going to take some family pictures for us with this beautiful park as the background. Unfortunately it was so hot and humid that within a minute of stepping outside we were sweating so much that I was sure our facial features were going to start sliding around our faces. I wasn't looking to have a Picasso family portrait, so we decided to do it another time.

The kids were so patient and helpful while we were putting the flooring in that grandma and grandpa gave them some money. Dalin used his cute face and his own money to get this package of strawberries for only $1 at the farmers market. We told him since he used bought it himself he didn't have to share if he didn't want to. He didn't, and he had eaten the whole box by the time we got back home.

Gettin' Piggy

They were supposed to pretend to eat the carrot, I don't think Dalin heard the pretend part.

Making smoke signals and petting lizards at the childrens museum.

Lawnmower rides were the hit of the trip

Your trip gives me hope. We are driving to Boise in a couple of weeks and it is nice to see that a family our size CAN make such a long journey together without doing serious harm to one another. You even look happy!
