Bravin Irene

In light of the impending hurricane, there was much deliberation back and forth about whether to go ahead with our plans to travel to North Myrtle Beach last weekend.  My brother, Neal, was planning to come down from Washington, DC where he is a Resident at Georgetown University Hospital.  We hadn't seen him for months, so we certainly didn't want to miss him.  

Friday night's weather was yucky, but it wasn't too bad.  Poor Neal ended up having to rent a car and drive from Charlotte to Myrtle Beach since all the flights were canceled.  He was determined!  By Saturday morning, everything was pretty clear except it was still windy, windy.  We ventured out to check out the beach ...

David wants you to check out the video ... watch the poor bird trying to battle the wind :-)

And here is one of cute Alex ... just for good measure!  

He was napping when we were out on the beach.  And that's good because he would have hated the wind blowing!  We went out onto the porch Saturday morning when the wind was still pretty strong.  Alex was afraid he was going to get blown over; he didn't like it one bit!!

Sunday was beautiful.  My BFF from Conway, April, came over, and we all played at the beach.  Rachel & I even got a little too much sun.  Great day!  But I only took two pictures ...

JAR Photography

When the kids and I were in Conway a couple of weeks ago, we met up with Rachelle and Joseph of JAR Photography.  Rachelle and I have known each other since we were in youth group together as preteens.  There were lots of crazy Acteen days :-)

Thank you, JAR photography for the awesome pictures!   I can't wait to get some on the wall!  (Grandmoms, let me know which ones you want!)  It would have only been better if David could have been there with us.  We do not have enough pictures of all four of us.

Rachel chose to bring the butterfly wings with her to the photo shoot.  I'm glad she did :-)  

I love this one. 
I think they're running away from home.


In these Alex wasn't really cooperating ... this was me trying to manhandle him a bit.
So we just let him do his thing; then we got some good pictures of him.

In this picture, I see the boy he's going to be in ten years or so.  He's already growing up so quickly.
I think babies in just diapers are the cutest things!

This is the best smile!


My babies and me
I think we were laughing at Alex's Peek-A-Boo.
Here I am!

Peek-A-Boo ... Alex style!
