Family Visit Part 1

It's been a long time since I have posted anything. My Sister had her baby and I got to go to Georgia to meet my nephew!! Keith was on a short deployment, so I went to visit my family while he was gone. He joined us for the last two weeks of our trip.

We had a great visit with our families, but it feels good to be home. I have finally come to the realization that home is where God sends us on this journey with the Navy. God has placed our family in I will be happy, because this is where He wants us for the moment.

Here are a "few" pictures of our trip... WARNING!! I took a lot... so you might want to skip this post... :) I am attempting to blog in chronological order... starting from the beginning. Hopefully I will get it right. :)

Here's Megs and Gracie meeting Brody for the first time:

This is the girls about 4:30p.m. the first day. They tried so hard to stay awake...waiting for Grandma to get home.

Grandma and Grandpa played a lot of games with the girls. Megs and Gracie got bored very easily, thanks to the cold weather. Here's a picture of them playing Life. We also played Uno and Phase 10.

The first weekend we were there it was supposed to be rainy, so we took a field trip to Fernbank Science center. We all had a great time!

Megs and Gracie posing in front of a dinosaur:

Megs making a big bubble.

Grandpa and Gracie taking their turn.

My Mom and Dad. A.K.A. Grandma and Grandpa.

Mom and me resting on a bench. I just HAD to snap a picture. :)

If you're in Atlanta with Grandma and Grandpa you HAVE to stop at the Varsity for a shake. Here's a picture of Gracie with her Varsity hat. Megs wouldn't let me take a picture of her in the hat...she's too old for that.

Here's Megs riding the 4-wheeler. My Uncle Kenny brought his grandson, Dalton's 4wheeler over and let Megs ride it the whole time we were in Georgia. He left it at Grandma and Grandpa's house. That was very sweet of Uncle Kenny and Dalton. Thank you!! She had so much fun!!

Here's Gracie with Rocky. My 1st nephew. :)

Me and my "little brother" Gary.

My Aunt Eleanor and Uncle Jerry stopped by to see us. They actually stopped by several times!! :) I hope they come and visit us in Hawaii one day!! Here are a few pictures from their first visit.

Aunt Eleanor and Megs

Uncle Jerry and Gracie

Here's a picture of all of us.

Here's a cute picture of Brody from that night. Did I mention that I LOVE being an Aunt??

My Poppa and Marie came by for a visit. These are pictures from that night.

My Sissy, Carla, holding her son Brody. Here's some pictures from a lazy Sunday afternoon...

PJ and Gracie

They look like they were caught plotting something...

My Handsome Grandaddy

Another adorable picture of Brody

This is a picture of Keith's grandparents Pop and Nan, with the girls. They took us to Cracker Barrel one night. The chicken n dumplings were delicious!

Aunt Carla caught Gracie pitching a fit and snapped a picture. This is the REAL Gracie... Ask Carla about one of our trips to Target...

This is one of my favorite pictures of Megs and Brody.

Gracie and Brody

Uncle Gary looks good in red... to bad it's not "Georgia Bulldog" red

4 cousins... :) I have to include Rocky... he was my first nephew! And the ONLY dog in the world that I love. :)

Brody and his favorite Aunt Bekah with a "K".

Sweet picture of Steven, Carla, and Brody

Carla and Brody... She is a great Mom... I always knew she would be. Thanks for making me an Aunt!!!

It seems every time I would hold Brody after he had eaten... he would poop. This is what you would see...

I caught Grandpa changing Brody's diaper...

This picture is of me with 3 of my bestest friends (other than Keith of course!)Me, Carla, Amy, and Stephanie. Amy is the one who got Keith and me together...

One more picture of Aunt Bekah and Brody.

For my Mom's birthday we all went to the Georgia Aquarium. (Everyone but Keith and Gary. They both had to work. I'm assuming that's what Keith does when he's on the Submarine... Sometimes, I think he's the only one working on the Sub...)

Happy Birthday Mom!!

My Sister's going to kill me, but... here's a picture of us.
Steven, Carla, and Brody

Aunt Carla had to bribe Gracie to get this picture. She told Gracie she could hold Brody for a minute if she took the picture. It worked! The girls love holding their cousin!! :)

My Sweet Girls
Eating Grandma's birthday do-nuts... Don't ask how many Mom and I had... :)

Grandma and the girls had fun playing with play-dough. Here's a sample of the food they made.

I'm going to end here for now. Part 2 will follow this post... I'll post them all at once so there's no confusion... Whew I need a break... I forgot how much stuff we packed into our short visit!! :)
