Weekend in Santa Fe

We spent the weekend before Easter down in Santa Fe, Texas at my Uncle Kenny & Aunt Karen's house. The reason for our visit was for Joey to play in the Kyle Adams Memorial Golf Tournament and of course, for all of us to spend time with family in remembering Kyle. I'm glad Joey is able to be part of that-its for my cousin, Kyle, who died suddenly in a car accident 5 years ago. There is a scholarship fund set up in his name that the money from the tournament goes to. Its an awesome thing to be a part of. Its neat to be able to all come together to do something to honor his name. This was our second time to be able to attend. My uncle holds a big bbq the night before and heats up his pool to 90 degrees for summertime fun in the spring for all those who are there. The kids had a blast! We all did. Thanks so much Kenny & Karen for letting us come and be part of it all. Delicious food and a fun time!

Joey and his girls

The scene. Their yard is seriously heaven. I think its an acre of land! They have a pool/slide/spa, huge outdoor living area, outdoor kitchen, a huge garden, chickens, tons of cool stuff.

My Uncle is in the green servin up barbecue goodness.

Cali and her cousin Berlin in the hot tub(not heated like a hot tub, don't worry)

I just thought this was a cool picture. And the kids smiling at the bottom is Aubrey :) I didn't even know she knew I was taking the picture until I looked at the pictures just now and saw her cute little smile!

There were lots of helping hands on the day of the tournament. I really appreciated all the help with Ammon while Joey was golfing! Thanks Mama!

And Tara!

And Grandma!

Saturday afternoon, we had a BIG egg hunt. The kids seriously scored in the candy department...and thankfully have been sharing with their parents:) Here are the animals, er, I mean kids corralled and ready to go.
And the hunt begins. . .

Ella was sweet and hunted a few eggs for us, I mean, Ammon too:)

Cali was a good hunter this year! And once she figured she had enough, she stopped and started eating. The hunt wasn't even over yet. She needed candy. Right away.
This was Ammon's first egg hunt.
Hmmm, whats this?

Within 5 seconds, it was in his mouth. Gotta give it a taste test! :) Thats one yummy plastic egg.
