I truly feel blessed to see so many special people when we come home. We try to plan well in advance and everyone is so willing to wait until we're get to Texas. Summer wouldn't be the same without being together. This weekend was packed full of being together!
Over 20 years ago we crossed paths with some pretty amazing people. All of the kids grew up together at Plano East then ALL 6 of us chose to go to Baylor. We've been in each other's weddings and of course increased in number since then. Every summer we nail down a date to pull the Prince, Ross, Watkins troops together. The Rosses graciously host our crowd so we can enjoy their pool. They also (as usual, even 20 years ago) put out a serious spread.
G and Me plus the adorable Johnsons!

The next night we reunited with our Watkins family. Again it was a privilege to grow up with most of my cousins usually most are in town. We were of course missing some but still had a great group. And it was an extra treat to have my Aunt Jill in town too. Aunt Jan and Uncle Jim hosted us for burgers and pool time of course.
