Saturday in Sugar Land

There isn't anything more precious to me than time spent with family. Today, my big sister, along with her daughter, granddaughter (Ainsley the Adorable) and son-in-law headed a few miles south to the beautiful city of Sugar Land, where my daughter works and lives. Leslie had invited her kindred to do lunch together, and God gave us a perfect afternoon. Blue skies. Sunshine. Temps in the 80s. Low humidity--something Houston rarely sees when the weather is warm.

We made memories over Mexican food, did a little shopping and just enjoyed being with each other. Those who couldn't make it were missed, but maybe we can have another gathering soon.

I love my family dearly. Each of us have burdens we bear, but God is ever mindful of us, and I am ever grateful.

  1. I love all of the pictures and must've looked at them a dozen times already. :) I miss everybody bunches! Glad y'all had a great day in Sugar Land. (Love the name of that city.)

  2. Sweet love in every photo!

  3. I think you probably know just how much I get this one. I love to spend time with my family more than anything I can think of. I'm even blessed to be able to cram into a pew and worship with them.

    Your family is beautiful, and your photos show a lot of love on faces.

    And Miss Shop Till You Drop is adorable, especially in the last photo.

  4. What a lovely day for lovely people.
    I loved the photos. . .Ainsley is adorable
    and I LOVE the blonde curls!!
