The updates of a little family in North Carolina trying to figure it all out....

Wednesday, May 21, 2008


This past week Ellie and I went to Texas to see my family. Adam was in Washington, D.C. with his fifth grade class, and I thought it was a great opportunity to go see my mom :) We had a great time! We flew into San Antonio and spent the day at the Riverwalk. Ellie went on her first boat ride, and she was such a good baby the whole day. Of course she has captured her grandparents' hearts, and they doted upon her the entire week.
This picture is of my mom and Ellie at Johnathan's baseball game- it was so cold! Ellie also did a little flirting with a certain toddler boy with blonde curly locks... tsk tsk tsk :)
We hung around my mom's restaurant and ate really good food during the week, and really enjoyed spending time with mom, John, Johnny, Grandma Kay, Athena the great dane, all ten of her puppies, Atlanta the border collie, Snow Balls the cat, Angelo the cat, and many many more animals all on the Mcdonald farm. My mom always loved a house full!
We are very glad to be home, in our own beds, and ready to take on the huge task of moving across the country. It sure was fun to have a little vacation though :)

It looks like you had so much fun in Texas. When do you move to North Carolina? Shawn and I have been in Washington for about 1 week. We love it. For pictures, check out my blog at I want to hear how your move goes.

Oh that looks like fun! And I just have to say that Ellie is one of the cutest babies I have ever seen! She has those gorgeous big eyes and perfect little Angelina-Jolie-lips! Just beautiful!
