Illinois Vacation


We spent a week at my parents house in Illinois, over the 4th of July - it made for some good relaxation and family time.  I think we all just needed to get away from Arkansas, work, and every day life a little - just a bit of a break in our routine.  And, naturally, Clara loves to soak up all the Nana & Papa time she can get.  :)

And it was nice to be able to spend time with my brothers, my sister-in-law, and my niece & nephew.. and seeing Clara play with her cousins.  My husband and brother had fun setting off some fireworks for us, too.. Clara fell asleep before all that excitement though.. in the arms of her GG (great grandma).  :)
