Happy Birthday Justin

He determines the number of the stars and calls them each by name. 

Psalm 147:3-5

Justin, you are an awesome father, a loving husband, a true brother and brother-in-law, a loyal friend, a devoted uncle, a grateful son-in-law, a true friend of God, a formidable warrior, a credit to your profession, a gifted team member, a wonderful star, and a precious son.  These are words from a letter I wrote to you June 13, 1999, just a few days before Mom and I took you to college.  Love, your Dad

Mast Farm - VIEWS Outside

Everything about the Mast Farm Inn is just great. The grounds, the area, the rooms. It just couldn't have been better

Peeps, let's do sidewalk chalk.......

One of Peeps and Avery's favorite things is sidewalk chalk...never mind that this is really MayMay's kitchen chalk - and we don't currently know the location of the sidewalk chalk. It's fun to hear them chatting and drawing and having fun. It's fun to be 2 1/2 :)

After lunch and naps...

Part of Jackson's routine is in what MayMay calls the tilta whirl. He likes it for a while after any meal. Here are the girls posing with Millie after lunch then another shot of Jackson in the Tilta Whirl later in the day - note the change in clothes. MayMay was giving him a little juice in his sleep sack and the above white onsie and all of sudden felt everything was wet....seems that she forgot to put in the inner workings of the went everywhere in a hurry.....we all survived and it turned out ok.

Pancakes Anyone???

Great way to start the day at Camp Toad Hall. Avery's cooking show. FoodTV will be calling soon.

Avery and sweet baby

Avery woke singing and talking to baby - so sweet she had cecily parsley wrapped up in her silky blankie...we love hearing her sweet cooing voice early in the morning.

Rainy Day at Toad Hall

The day was pretty rainy and we stayed in for the most part. The three kids played with the toys and each other. If I hadn't told you it was raining - I bet you could have guessed it with Little Grayson's cutie pie curls... Later on Peeps took Avery to the pet store while I stayed with Jackson. They saw lots of critters. Justin and Grayson and Millie came over for supper - and some more playtime for the cousins...Justin wore Jackson around in the Ergo and Jackson said thanks........for getting me outta that packnplay....

Tate Street in the rain

The next morning we packed up all the little kids and everyone's raincoat and headed off to Tate Street Coffee - everyone's favorite breakfast place. We visited and Ali and Johnathan left their two little ones with us to Toad Hall and took off for Raleigh.

Happy Birthday Little Bunnie

We had hoped to go to Asheville for Ali's birthday but Johnathan had an idea to whisk Ali
off to their old stomping ground - Raleigh - Wake Forest - Chapel Hill for a getaway and
wondered if we could keep Avery and Jackson so they could go...
We had a dinner for her Thursday night (after the kiddies were asleep) Justin and Millie
came too - put Greyson down and we enjoyed Ali's favorite and requested meal...steak..roasted
potatoes 'my salad' and Italian bread.

Sunset Hills Greenway Park

Sunset Hills park is a fun place for a little one. We loaded up the stroller and off we went. She liked the swing but it was different than hers at home. She really seemed to like the tubes to crawl in. She is exploring life and we love her so. MayMay and Peeps...

Pat the bunny - fish go zoom zoom

One of the things Peeps and MayMay like to do when the grandchildren come to Toad Hall is to load everyone in the car and go to Friendly to the pet store and the toy store. Bunnies were fun - birds were tweeting - fish were going zoom zoom zoom.

Grayson and Millie visit Toad Hall

It was a most wonderful weekend. Millie and Grayson and Maggie spent the weekend at Toad Hall while Justin was at the beach with his buddies catching fish and having fun.. We read, took baths, played with Tyler, and hung out.
