There were a lot of highlights during our 11 day trip.  I would say one of the top tops was meeting Karis, our littlest niece.

Thom comes from a family of 5 kids and everyone picked different corners of the states and abroad (shout out Tim!) to settle their families.  While it provides many fun spots to visit, we aren’t able to get there to meet each new family member as they arrive.  Karis is 3.  She was in her mama’s belly the last time we saw them.  What a beautiful little girl she has become!

You must smile when you’re around this child.  She can’t seem to stop smiling.  It’s infectious and delicious.  Just look at that face!

We love you Karis.  Even from far away you make your uncle, auntie and cousins smile!
