Lila and Bennett crashed in the car on the way there (it was such a peaceful ride- I treated myself to a Starbucks and enjoyed the trip over the causeway), and so their usual "warming up period" was a little extended because we woke them up when we got there. But, before long, Gray had them running around like lunatics and playing with fox tails!
Here is our big "family"! Gray and Shelley (and now MC) really are like family to us...even though we don't get to see them as much as we would like these days, we love them so much and are so, so, happy for them and their new family. I must say, parenting seems to suit them both very well!! Shelley looks amazing, and they both seem to be enjoying their daughter immensely.
Bennett admiring the little cutie pie....
She is soooo precious!
We've come a long way since our Millsaps days!!
Even Lila was excited...usually she is not too happy since new babies seem to steal the attention...After a while she did tell me to "give her back". HA!
Gray was on entertainment duty, as usual. He gave the kids "horse rides" on Gus (their 12 year old lab- I'm sure he was thrilled), and let them play with his fly-fishing magnifying glasses---which they loved!
After our visit, we went and grabbed a bite to eat at a sandwich shop on Magazine. It rounded out a fun night!
Elise being a goofball at dinner....
The kids also welcomed a new second cousin into the family this week as well. Sweet little Abigail Grace. We took a road trip with Mimi, Grandpa, and SuSu to meet her at the hospital on Tuesday. It was quite a trip, and a little overwhelming, and so I didn't do a good job of documenting with pictures. Just too many wide open spaces tempting my two 3 year olds to run off!! Had to have my A game!!
We are very happy for Daniel and Steph as well as they become parents for the first time!! Quite an exciting time for them as well...
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
