because i love five little people in kansas






apparently March has kicked my blogging butt!
sorry for being MIA, but man! March has been good to me.

Last week, I spent an extra long weekend in Kansas with my sister and her adorable family.
I planned the trip with her husband, and she had no idea I was coming!
It was pretty funny when she walked downstairs Thursday morning--and there I was! just sitting on her couch!

We did so many fun things!
saw so many church sites, ate lots of ice cream, did a session at the winter quarters temple (!!!), talked about life, and laughed a lot!
oh, and the best part was finally getting to cuddle the adorable little humans pictured above.
I love those little kids like you wouldn't believe.

Oh, AND, I got to check four states off of my "states I've been to list"
kansas, missouri, iowa, nebraska!

my heart already misses this beautiful family so much--but at least this time we won't have to wait two years to see each other again!
counting down to July when I am reunited with them once again!

thanks for treating me right, kansas!
xoxo
