Vacation Party of 24

Last weekend we went on a fun mini vacation with our bible study group to La Toretta. It is a family friendly resort on Lake Conroe that has several different pools and a lazy river. There were 7 couples and 10 kids ranging from about 9 weeks to 3 years old.

The guys group picture was a little more creative than the girls. Although it is missing Justin since they were out to dinner at the time.

We managed to somehow get all the kids together for a group picture. Well, all except Bennett. For instructions on how to take a group picture of kids, please see this post.

I headed up to La Toretta early Friday afternoon with the girls and Greg got there a little bit later after work. We hung out and ate dinner by the pool. Lainey even took her evening cat nap there.

That evening after the kids went to bed the guys hung out. Some of the girls did too but I stayed in the room since the monitor did not reach far. Cambry and Lainey were so energized from all the excitement they did not want to sleep. These pictures were taken around 9:45pm. Cambry was all smiles and Lainey was a wiggle worm. They finally fell asleep around 10. Cambry was on the pull out couch and Lainey in a crib - both in the living area of our suite. A suite is the way to go with kids!

Saturday we hung out by the pool from morning until night with a brief time out for naps. Cambry was having so much fun. Lainey did great. It was so relaxing to just hang out and not have any to-do list items all day.

I can't believe we have all been in bible study together for so long. I think it has been about 6 years. We have laughed together, cried together, prayed together, and watched our families grow together. This group is such a blessing. We miss the couples that have moved away! I am so thankful that all these kids get to hang out together. It is a joy to watch them grow up. And I look forward to more little ones being added to the group.
