Shortly after my trip to Houston, we loaded up and headed to Louisville, KY for the wedding of our good friends, Blake and Bennett. It was a gorgeous wedding, the girls stayed up dancing to the band until midnight, and Aly was convinced that she was the bride (although she was actually a flower girl!)
Two days after returning from Louisville, Chad headed to Orlando to recruit while I took the girls on our annual trip to my parents' house in Syracuse, NY. The difference this year was that I left them with my parents for almost an entire week on their own!
Chad and I then met in Montana and spent the week with 30 college kids from his college for a Christian leadership camp. We had a blast hiking, visiting Yellowstone, and tubing down a cold river. I did not have the best attitude going into the trip (mostly because I had never left the girls that long!), but it was really a great time. And it was great hanging out with all of those kids in Montana.
Chad and I then returned (on lots of separate flights!) back to Syracuse, where we've gotten to spend a ton of great time with my parents and the girls. They had a blast while we were gone at the zoo, the beach, a petting zoo and more. Luckily, they barely seemed to notice that we were gone! We'll be heading back to Georgia tomorrow, but have loved every minute of our busy month away!
