A.T.L and beyond........

it has taken me 8 years to get all the pictures on here. there are a lot of pictures as well. there was just so many things to take pictures of, so this will be the post for the week. as i mentioned earlier we went to ATL, the homeland, for my grandma's 93rd birthday. what a celebration. we had a wonderful time there. Grandma got to hold and sing to BellaRose a lot. i am so blessed to be able to see my daughter with my grandma. so special.
Angela can't get enough kisses!

here are 6 of grandma's great grandchildren. 2 of them were in england and could not make it to the party. my sister with her 2 kids and my cousin with his 3 kids.

these are my cousins little girls Lindsey and Cassidy. they put on a little dance for us. i was so proud of them for coming up with the dance and wanting to show all of us.

so angela and the family got a new puppy. he is really cute, only 3 1/2 pounds. the kids adore him. we need help coming up with a name. so if you have any thoughts please let us know. i like Moose, and Bruno was a thought, but that might have been vetoed.


this is REBECCA she just had her baby, emerson, on 07.07.07. it was so much fun to catch up with her and meet her husband Sebastian. Emerson and BellaRose got to play under the star together. Emerson is so cute and little! Thanks for the good time Bec. We also got to see my other friend Sumner and her new husband Wes. I forgot to get a picture and i am kicking myself about that. Sumner just got married in Greece, in June. How exotic!


the gigantic skatepark tour made its way to georgia as promised. we first hit up Athens, home to the mighty DAWGS. it was scorching hot so worth did not skate as long as he would have liked and he took a hit on the concrete that sort of knocked his brain a little bit so he called it a day on the ole skatepark and we hit up the cute town of Athens. then worth found his Mecca, the new BrookRun skatepark in Dunwoody, not far from my dad's house. he said it is the best skatepark he has ever been too. i have to say that it was beautiful and i don't know much about skateparks.

this was worth's skating buddy......he was 3! so cute.



this is athens' skatepark below. BellaRose may just one day be a skater girl you never know. she sure likes watching her daddy skate!


sweet BellaRose smiles a lot now. it is so wonderful to have a little baby smile at you. her whole face lights up.


here is our harvest of pumkins and tomatoes. the pumpkins did not make it to October, but we will proudly display them in August for all the world to see! we have pumpkins and we are proud. i found a website on pumkin growing and it said that we can keep them until spring if we take care of them. check out the basket, it is filled with cherry tomatoes. if you want any PLEASE come by. i am not sure what we will do with all of them.

Smiles are indeed the best. They make everything wonderful.

Dude. Your garden basket is AWESOME. You'll have to give me some tips for next year when I plant a real garden. My container garden did very well, but it was dead when we got home from vacation. So sad.

I'm ready to see BellaRose rippin up the skate parks! I have no doubt she's going to be as amazing as her mom and dad! (Sunday, that was a snowboard reference for you...hopefully this year will be colder than last and she can have her turn grinning at her mama tearing up the snow...or ice)
