Hurray for Sparkling Springs

Hurray for:

…the giant extended Rhodes family getting away from life for a few days and hiding out in the woods together

….getting to know and remember the names of a whole lot of aunts and uncles.

….. lots of games of Dominion.

….. Dad’s party mix.

…..walks in the woods and playing with cousins.

…..bike riding and smores

….sleeping in cabins

Thanks, Mom and Dad for hosting us and making the getaway possible!

A few of my favorite pics ….

(poor Claire scraped her chin and sprained her wrist on our first day here riding a runaway bike downhill. She got x-rayed on Monday and got a splint- she’s back to normal now)

Oh my- how sweet is this picture?? My newest nephew, Atticus.

Eliza getting to know her newest aunt, Abigail.

A dance train to “In That Day” a song written by Uncle Philip that is a favorite of all the kids.

The whole bunch (minus Atticus taking a nap). Dear Carmen, Jason, Dara, Lydia, Luke, Elijah and Isaac- we missed you very, very much and have high hopes that we will all be together next summer!!! Much love.
