Gigi left early this morning to go to the airport...bummer! The kiddo's are still asleep so I thought I'd take a moment to put some pics up of her time here...I know Shep and Rauly are going to be very sad to wake up and find Gigi had to go back home. :( On a happier note - we had SUCH a good time while she was here...we stayed very busy showing her our city! She got to see Rauly at the Little Gym and got to meet several of the couples we've befriended since we moved here. We took her to Anastasia Island as well as our new church home. Chad's parents cooked dinner for us one night and my mom really enjoyed getting to visit with them. I showed her ALL of the local parks where I take the kiddo's to play and she even got to see Shepherd swimming - she taught him how to dive in - yay Shep!! The best part of all was last night (4th of July)...we took her to the river where we got to participate in a local community carnival as well as see BEAUTIFUL fireworks over the water! I gave blood to Red Cross while Chad, my mom and the kids rode rides, met Spider Man, and got lots of goodies from the booths. The fireworks show was the grand finale of mom's stay here...she tucked the kiddo's in bed last night and then we crashed ourselves - we were worn out from a very busy week!! SO - mom, thanks for taking time off to sell real-estate...we LOVED having you here and can't wait for your next trip up!!

What a fun trip! I wonder how far apart we live from each other? How far are you from Disney World? Whit doesn't have your e-mail address, so you'll have to send it to me. You can send it to hkrhodes@yahoo.com
I'll send the photo and we can talk minivans... our original plan was to go with the 8-seater, but we found out that if you use carseats, you cannot access the back row of seats, because the front seats have to be able to flip down. And the seats in the 8-seater were smaller and not as comfy.
My mom gets here Monday! I'm 38 weeks and 1 day right now.

It looks like ya'll had a great time with your mom! I will try get my pics form from visiting the Hicks tonight! We had a great time! I wished that we had a little more time to go to the beach, but Austin was SO fussy on our last two days there I decided that we better not push it! Maybe next time! I wish I could have been in Jax to see the fireworks over the water! My B-day is the 5th and I grew up thinking that the fireworks were just for my b-day! So I HAVE to see them or I'm just not a happy camper!

I'm glad you had so much fun with Gigi--I loved looking at all the pictures! Aren't mom's the best?! And, how fun to think that you'll get to do the same fun things with Rauly's children one day :) Speaking of Rauly, she and Shepherd are getting so big! I can't believe Shep can now dive into a pool. Wow! Time flies! Hope you have a great week.
