Casa Grande – 2012

April 8, 2012

Casa Grande lives on. But we’re about to embark upon some sadness. Chris is taking a job in Midland,  and this was his last weekend in Lubbock. So the Booths came to visit so we could all hang out before Chris peaces out.

It was a weekend full of laughs, eating, smoking A LOT of meat (I mean, seriously. The guys smoked a brisket, two pork shoulders, a turkey, and a salmon), playing games, and celebrating Easter together. Such a good weekend. We are so blessed to have friends like the Booths and Amy and Chris, and we are so undeserving of Jesus and his love for us, and the fact that he gives us friendships that are so stinking awesome.

So here was our weekend in a nutshell. A large nutshell, because I took A LOT of pictures. Here are Ella and Deuce… BFF.

Us girls might look a little sweaty… It’s because Allison inspired us to do Insanity with her. We (me and Amy) kind of died, but I kind of loved it, too.

Ella has always talked about getting a pie in the face… Well, we had some leftover cakes in the freezer from Coop’s birthday, so it was Amy’s amazing idea to ice those bad boys and have a cake smashing party. Allison got Ella first. SO FUNNY.

Chris had the littles and I had the camera, so we were both safe from the cake :)
