A whirlwind of a trip!

We took a quick trip to Rhode Island to visit with Justin's family and I am still tired! Justin's father suffered a stroke a couple of years back and he isn't doing well so Justin wanted to go visit him while we could. Emma had a blast playing with ALL of her cousins and Gus! (Gus was our dog before Emma came along, and we sent him to live in Rhode Island with all the kids.) We had such a great time and I got some really good pics of Emma while we were there!

All of Justin's family laughs at me because I always have bows in Emma's hair, or frilly outfits on her. They say she is def. from the South! So when I broke out the tutu, I thought they were going to fall over laughing! Please remember Justin and his family in your prayers. His father has never really had a good relationship with any of his kids, but it is still hard for them to see him like this. He did come to life when he saw Emma running around. I think I even saw a smile out of him....and Justin too!

I have plenty more to write about, but I hear a little girl calling for her Mommy in the next room!! Can't turn down that voice!! :-) Hope you are all having a blessed summer!

With Love,

Such a beautiful little girl! Looks just like her mommy!

It was so great to see you all the other day at my shower! I was totally surprised when I saw you walk through the door. It made my day! :) I wish little Emma knew me and wasn't so terrified! hehe

Love you!
