Madison was able to be with one of her best friends, too. I loved watching all the kids play together in such creative and rambunctious ways! It was such a fun, fast and furious 24 hours.

Upon our return to Abilene we enjoyed the familiarity of home. We had a whole crew over to visit and play on Thursday and it was so lovely to see all of our friends and family.
Visiting with Uncle Matt, Lily and Grandma Jilly

We took a trip to "the falls" of Wichita and walked around with the fam. Kyle and the folks, and Mamaw came up to visit us too and we had such a wonderful visit. It felt amazing to be with my family again!

Harper was pretty spectacular on her first plane ride much to the delight of our fellow dubious passengers, who had probably seen the same article I had about the baby and her mama who were kicked off the Southwest flight the week before. Success with no tears or tantrums!
Lauren picked us up from the airport and it felt great to be back in the Lone Star State! Madison was able to stay with Grandma Jilly and Papa Ben while we spent the night with the Devenys and Harper and Nolan got to know each other a bit. He was a doll to her, so gentle and sweet. They shared baby food and his puzzles. Mason came over to visit and have dinner with us and by the end of the night the Thorntons were pooped. I think I was out by 8:45!
The next day we were off to Lauren's baby shower for sweet Clara. It was a great time to see some more folks and catch up. Mason was incredible enough to take us to Witchita Falls for the next part of the adventure!
