Family Time

We've had a busy time with family visits during the month of June. My brother, his wife, and two little ones came in the second week. And we stayed busy with a huge family fish fry, a trip to build a bear and the Children's Museum, swimming, and the list goes on. I think the hit of the trip for my nephew Avery was watching his dad and me play old school Nintendo. (I'm talking 1st generation!) Mine is still in perfect condition.
We do not get to see them enough because we live so far away from each other, but I'm already looking forward to our next get together-hopefully sooner rather than later.

We were able to get some family pics before they left for the airport...minus Prissy and Elvis!

And here is all four of the Hankins men. I think Avery got some jelly beans for staying still long enough to get some family pics.

Here in one pic from our trip to CMOM. The boys both loved it!

And then it was time to say our goodbyes. Trent is so good with kids....probably because he knows how to act like one himself.

Our neices and nephew from CO also came for a visit in June. I caught this cute pic of Garrett and Trent swinging in his parents backyard. Lawson and Kennedy were too busy running around, but I think Garrett was about to play out. We are lucky to be the aunt and uncle of some great kids!
*Other June news.....Trent took a new job, we put our house back on the market, and Trent is going in for a surgey on Tuesday at UAMS to have an area of skin removed from his back. The initial biopsy indicated that it was Melanoma. Now there are a few questions. If you read this, please send up a few prayers for us this week...that it is in fact NOT Melanoma and wisdom for these doctors, so they will quit giving us the run around.


Wow! It's been a long time since I put anything on here! What a fast year so far.... I know I can't possibly go back and remember everything that's happened since January, so I'm just going to hit a few of the high points.

Our nieces and nephew from CO came in sometime in the Spring, and we had a nice little visit with them...even squeezing in a picnic and trip to the zoo.

Before that, Elvis celebrated his third birthday in February. He loves his extra special treats from Three Dog Bakery. He even got a bison bone, that I think is still around somewhere. For anyone that know Elvis, that is pretty rare. He can destroy a stuffed animal in under 5 minutes.

And we had a special celebration with the birth of Lawson Thomas in January. One of our closest family friend's little boy. He has grown so much since this picture and is such a cute baby!
