Brotherly Love....

Well, Jacob headed home last night to Portland,OR - bummer! We had such a great visit...to sum it up, we laughed, we ate junkfood, we laid out at the beach and the pool, we attempted to surf (key word being: attempted), we ate junkfood, we laughed, we laid out some more....can you tell it was just as much a vacation for US as it was for him?! It was nice to sit down with my younger brother with admiration and see just how much he's matured and grown up....he's Mr. Independant and has made a good life for himself in Oregon ALL by himself....not many people can say that! The kids literally ate him up (especially Shepherd who thought he was the coolest guy, second to his daddy of course!). The 4 days went way too fast but we've already started planning our next get-together....no more going a year or longer!

So glad you were able to enjoy some down time with your brother! Your pictures are great. I especially love the close up of Rauly. She has the prettiest blue eyes!!! Hope y'all have a great week.

It looks like y'all had a great time together! It's so cute to see your tan kids! We're as white as can be here in AR! Sorry I haven't commented in a while. I'm still keeping up with you though. Are you coming to LR anytime soon?

Oh looks like you guys had just a wonderful time. Rauly looks so stinkin cute in her swimsuit and also her little piggy tails!. It's a good thing your brother got to experience the warm weather this past weekend before this cold front came through here in Jax!. It's crazy I tell ya!.

Gosh you're gorgeous! It's been so long since I've seen you in person. You truly are one of those women that gets prettier and prettier. And Rauly is the cutest thing I ever did see! Love the pics. Glad you had fun with your brother.

Amen on the gorgeous-ness! I'm so glad you and your brother had fun. Brothers are the best, aren't they? Portland is the coolest city and I know Jacob is loving it there. Have a great weekend!

I am glad you had a good time with jacob. I got tears in my eyes when I saw Rauly. She looks like a year older and such a big girl. I miss you guys.

Love the pics! Your family is so beautiful. I admire your relationship you have with your brother. I don't think there are many brothers that are willing to enjoy their vacation time with their sisters.
So happy to hear that you are all enjoying life!

Rauly is soooo cute! I love her little swimsuit! She's getting so big too - I guess it's true what they say about kids growing up so fast!

What great beach pics! I would love to go the the beach right now... Glad that you had a good vaction with your brother. It's sad to say that not every family can spend good quality time with eachother these days.
Shep and Rauly are getting so big! They are so cute!
