Day Trip to Abilene

On Tuesday the 28th, Robin’s entire immediate family including sister, brother, their spouses, their children, and mom and dad and our family of four all rented a 15 passenger van and made a road trip to Abilene, TX!  It was fun and CRAZY!  We headed to Abilene to spend the day with the entire “Curry” extended family at his Aunt and Uncles house.  It was so good to see everyone.   A lot has happened with the Curry family this year- 4 babies born in the last year, Maw Maw’s husband Wes passed away, and Jonathan (Robin’s cousin) had a pulmonary embolism and was in critical condition for days.  It was so good to all get together and celebrate the miracles that have occurred this year. 

Here are Tommy and Emma waiting to load of the van on Tuesday morning- she still loves Uncle Tommy and copies everything he does!IMG_5954edit
