Summer comes to an end...

There is nothing like the smell of the ocean, the sound of waves and the feel of the sand. Summer is such a sweet time.  We made lots of new memories this summer, and had lots of fun while we were in the States. 

Now we are saying goodbye to summer, as our backpacks are officially packed and new clothes are laid out.  Everyone is excited to start school tomorrow, and yet there is also a bit of anxiety of once again diving into German instruction...please pray for all of us as we start another school year and that those friendships that were started last year would quickly be rekindled.

Friday Favorites-Flying Edition

We have landed safely and it is a little surreal to be back home.  Since I am a lot slap happy and very weary...thought we'd do a little of the old Friday favorites-this time...Flying Edition

Favorite place to get an overpriced chocolate chunk cookie while at the airport: Caribou Coffee

Favorite drug to take before getting on the plane: Zanax (seriously!)

Favorite kiddo to sit by: the one who is sleeping:)

Favorite rag, I mean mag to read: People...of course

Favorite drink to get from that sweet flight attendant:  Cran-apple juice...nope, not Diet Coke!                                                                                                       Fooled ya didn't I? 

Favorite indulgence:  THIS
(which of course I don't really have, but would have slept a lot better if I did)

Favorite reason for flying:  TO GET HOME!!!

Gone Fishin...

Look at that smile!   He was so proud of his catch.  Too bad he didn't like eating it as much as he liked catching it!  Today Brad and the kids went trout fishing while I finished packing for our trip back to Vienna.

Our vacation has been exhausting and relaxing all at the same time. We very much have enjoyed our time in the States, but are ready to sleep in our own beds, have some routine again and see our friends there.  I will have lots to catch you up on once we get settled back home...just give me some time, while we recover:)

Nothing but FUN in the Florida sun!

Last night we got a gift from Neena to go on a gondola ride with Rick and Dede.  Both of us celebrate our wedding anniversaries this week! Happy 14th Rick and Dede and Happy 11th to us!  

Tonight the Glam Grams are watching our kids overnight while we get away!  Our first time without the kiddos in 14 months ...

I think it is about time:)

Our baby girl got bangs!!!

She has been asking for bangs...or "hair that touches her eyebrows" as she would say, for over 3 years now.  We finally gave in!  And she looks too cute!

This is the only word that can begin to describe our trip back to the States...from the size of the drinks with ice to all of the love we have received... all of it has been a bit overwhelming.  

Too many things to write about and too many pictures to post, but I hope to catch up sometime over the weekend.

A big thanks to everyone who has loved us well while we have been in Florida!

Catching up...

Can you guess where in the world the Hunter's are???

If you said guessed right... and even more specifically, we are in Florida! We are officially on vacation with our family.  Sorry that we haven't posted for awhile, but we have been too busy catching up with our favorite people and places of South Florida!  If you are around, Brad is preaching tomorrow at St. Andrews at the 8:30 and 11:00 services.  We'd love to see you there!
