More photos than you ever cared to lay eyes on...be warned and go away or sit back and enjoy...
The initial travel leg of the trip went smoothly...too smoothly.
Our flights both landed early, Julia was a little peach for both flights and our bags arrived safe and sound. A little trifecta of miracles.
We enjoyed some quality time with friends:
Julia shared some intimate moments with a much younger handsome little man:
She and Simon thoroughly enjoyed her first dip:
while Grace found her maternity full arm coverage swimsuit to be a bit cumbersome:
Julia so kindly slept like a legitimate baby in the big girl bed:
Emily was the prettiest graduate:
take two for prettiest graduate:
We took some nice family photos with a lovely dread lock backdrop:
Julia was a real doll:
(don't be fooled by her fancy finery...Julia's grandma was most definitely donning some nice jeggings the previous evening )
Julia was mostly well-behaved
except when it came to highchair confinement and her two calorie appetizers:
She randomly met this nice boy that was six pounds her junior and two years her senior and insisted they get to know each other better:
he was polite but understandably unamused
We happened upon this fancy parking lot and took advantage of the great lighting:
moments after we were confused for twins
and sideburns and her man with no escape route in sight:
thennnnnnnnn came the unfortunate trip home.
Just thinking about the story bores me to tears so I won't give the full deets but basically the odyssey was an ugly equation of oversold flights, ticket agent in training giving us boarding passes for an earlier flight, an overnight in Atlanta and of course a serious formula shortage. All is well now though and we have some pods to load, a Simon to graduate and a baby to ultrasound.
Packing is going um...
Simon is in the lead with 54 boxes packed while Grace trails with 2 little boxes and one trash bag and our slacker 8 month old hasn't done a darn thing.
Simon suggested I give up blogging for this week to which I dramatically and seriously replied that I cannot let down my beautiful and bountiful bouquet of readers..but the blog might be on a nice diet for the next few days...Camp Patton light and fit...if you will.
Enjoy your day.
