Today was our last day with the Illinois Blumes.  Dave, Kristena, Avry and Addyson have to return to Illinois tonight.  To celebrate our last day together, we went to lunch at Agave.  Nothing like tasty chips and salsa with great family!

We couldn’t let them leave without visiting two of our favorite holiday places – the Magic Tree and the Candy Cane Crib.  We started at the Magic Tree.

I loved looking at their faces when they saw that beautiful tree!

After lots of pictures, we headed to the Candy Cane Crib.  Laura and John signed the sign as they do every year.

I made sure to get a picture of the kids.

It was sad to hug the Illinois Blumes goodbye and send them on their way.  It was such a great few days and I miss them already!
