Emma's trip to MO

This summer Emma had the pleasure of traveling to MO to spend the week with (great) Aunt Judy and Uncle Frank. Mommy grew up with Aunt Judy and Cousin Kenny and Cousin Amie in Jeff City (Jefferson City, MO). Well Cousin Amie has a daughter who's 6 like Emma and Aunt Judy decided to keep both girls for a week this summer. They had a blast!

During this one week the girls:
Visited the state capital building where they took a tour and had fun
Ate ice cream at Central Dairy and Dairy Queen
Visited Uncle Cletus
Went to the Tooth Fairy movie
Went to Bible class
Went to the cool swimming pool with Ken and Judy - twice
Rode a train to Sedalia for Mexican food with Ken, Judy, Frank, and cousin/aunt Cassie
Had a scavenger hunt at the park
Had a Fancy Nancy Party with other girls from church, Judy, and cousin Lyshia
Painted pottery
Decorated matching hats/ t-shirts
Visited the Runge Nature Center

When they came home they were sorely let down by the lack of planned activities after this fun filled week. They got to share a bed, which means giggles and talking till late. They had books, movies, Barbies, dress-up, and coloring books to fill any spare moments. They got to wear make-up and trade clothes. All in all it was a great week for them both. . . thought I know Aunt Judy and Uncle Frank were worn out by the end! :) I feel so blessed to have such a wonderful family that I can share with my kids.
