This little family has been on the go again!  This is the reason I am just now posting about our fabulous trip to Raleigh with Annie and Will!  Oh my goodness did we have a blast.  It is hard to believe it is over, it really did fly by.  We stayed with Ashlee in her beautiful home.  We are so thankful that she allowed all the chaos to come to her.  She also let Annie and I rearrange her living room which is a whole other story.  Byerly came and spent everyday with us and brought along her sweet little/big Chesson.  He is the sweetest little baby!  Elisabeth drove over from Greensboro with Myles and Molly while 7 months preggars with Miller, oh my!  Then Melissa came over the for evening which rounds out our "M's"! Phew!  The next day we took the babies to Marbles in downtown Raleigh.  It is the most wonderful hands on Children's museum.  I tell you these babies needed that place.  They got to run wild and touch everything and it was a nice break from us having to say "no don't touch that, no don't climb those stairs, no don't eat the dog's food".  Thanks again girls for a wonderful trip filled with so many memories.  We have started a tradition and I am so excited!
BellaRose and I got to come home for 2 days before we packed the car again for another road trip.  This time to Concord for Margaret's baby shower and for Worth to go back to the land he loves!  It was a lovely shower and yes again, another wonderful trip.  BellaRose loves hanging with her T-Love and Big Poppa!
Finally, THE STEELERS WON THE SUPERBOWL!!!  What a game.  How about that interception and 100yd run for a touchdown!  Incredible.  Now I know I am not the biggest sports fan now a days, but it has not always been so.  I grew up with sports surrounding me and with my whole family from Pittsburgh it should be only fitting that I was excited about last nights incredible game.  I had to watch the last part on nfl.com and it was only animation since we don't have a TV and I could not find it online except for that, it was okay though b/c I got to sort of see it all.  That last 2 minutes was a bit heart wrenching, but the Steelers pulled it off with what "they" are saying is one of the best superbowls ever.  I really have no idea if that is true, but it sure was exciting and I know my family is so happy!

OK, your post hasn't shown up on my blog roll, but I thought I'd click over and just see...and lucky me you did post! What a fun trip. Of course everyone's kids are cute but with Chesson being so close to William I just can't help but looking at him...sorry I'm stalking your baby Byerly :-) What a fun trip! A science museum, you know I'm jealous!

o how fun, good post, you really descbribed everything so well, it prevents me from having to do a post. I will send people here to read about our trip, then I can do my post about "every little bit counts", I've been thinking of that title for a while now.
We had so much fun with you guys. What a fun tradition we have started. Love the pictures, you really are so talented.
becky is funny, he will probably fight me one day about it though.

Please come back! It was good to see everyone we will have to do it again when Jessica comes in town this summer.

Great pictures!

Wow.. what a fun trip! Sounds like a great opportunity to see old friends and have you kids meet too!

MC and Brian Phillips said...

wow- if I were Annie, I would totally be wanting that black and white pic of Will upclose to frame and put on my wall...yes, you are very talented!

Niki said...

That sounds like so much fun. I love the picture of Will and BellaRose together. They are really so cute. And how fun that all the kids got to hang out. That museum sounds like a blast.

Niki said...

Okay, just realized I got yours and Annie's pictures mixed up. The picture I meant about Will and BR is actually on her blog--where she's laying across his lap.

MC is right about your pictures, though. The black and white ones are really amazing.
