We had a fun time hanging out with Kyle's parents, and one night we even got to have a barbecue with some cousins and Aunt Jeanne, which was a blast (and delicious) . We loved seeing Ken and Barbara's new house--it is so neat! Kyle and I love the interesting architecture that some older houses have. Barbara says that you have to either love or hate the layout of their house--and we love it! The whole house is built around an open-air atrium in the center--so it's like a square doughnut. At night, you can look in the front door, through the atrium, and into the living room. It's very cool. It also has a HUGE front and back yard. Mowing that grass takes FOREVER. And the back patio is so cute. Velocity is going to love visiting her grandparents in Wyoming!
Kyle stood on one end of the front lawn and took a picture of me on the other end. Can you even see me?
There's Ken on the other end of the massive driveway.
I love the trees by the patio.
In the awesome atrium. (Great place to hang out in the summer...in the winter, apparently it fills up with snow.)
Kyle had to give Velocity bunny ears.
We spent a good amount of time watching old home videos. Kyle was hilarious and SO CUTE. Seriously. He kills me. (I hope we have kids just like him. I think I was a pretty cute kid as well [though nothing like Kyle], so I think the combination will make for some awesome little children. Hopefully they'll be cool when they grow up too). We also spent one whole evening on family history! My family is really into it, so I know a ton about my ancestors--but I knew NOTHING about Kyle's family. It was really interesting and fun to learn more about the Vaughns and Goolsbys. We may have made a mess in the office with family group sheets, but I think it was well worth it. Now Velocity can know about BOTH sides of her family, which I think is really important.
Kyle was feeling cheesy.
REALLY cheesy. I am totally laughing at him in this picture, even though it seems like I'm looking at him lovingly. Don't be fooled.
