Disclaimer--I cannot seem to get blogger to load my pictures in the order I want them, so it might seem a little random. This past weekend, Xavier and I visited Missouri and were able to attend Lauren's bridal shower and the 65th wedding anniversary of my grandparents! It was a great time--a little too busy and short, but I'm so glad we were able to go! Xavier was spoiled by all the attention and seemed to love it--he definitely needed to catch up on sleep when we got back! Now for some pictures...
No gathering of my dad's side of the family would be complete without a hay ride! And it was a full wagon...this is before many even got on!
