Funny Video

I don't know how many of you know, but I am a good friend of Courtney's and I married her cousin, so we are now related!!! Our babies are exactly a month a part, to the day, Will is 4 weeks older than Mary Paul. This video was taken at a wedding about a month ago. It is so funny. I am so excited that I learned how to upload videos to my blog!!!

I also have some good pictures of Mary Paul, who is almost crawling and loves, loves, loves books. She loves to look at them and turn the pages. She rarely attempts to eat them. Maybe she'll be a reader. She also is a huge poser for the camera. On Sunday I took Mary Paul hiking at Percy Warner with a friend. She loved riding in the pack, but I must say that after three miles in 92 degree heat with 25 pounds on my back...I was hot and sweaty. Mary Paul loved the ride though!!

Family Vacation to Fripp Island

It has been quite sometime since my last post so this one is a doozie. We have been very busy. We went on a family vacation with my side of the family to Fripp Island, SC and had a blast. This was Mary Paul's first long trip away from home. She did very well!!! She loved, loved, loved the water and the beach. She would sit forever in the tide pools or where the waves rush in, but she can't because she'd get sunburned and I'd feel awful. We went to the beach, the pools ( three different ones on the island), to Charleston to have dinner with Bryan's cousins, rode in golf carts all over the island, rode in a swing at the playground and so much more. Plus we got to see all my sisters, brother-in-laws, nieces and nephews, plus two of their friends, and of course G-mama. We also had a pirate party our last night there. My sister Samantha, her husband Dave, and my mom panned out two different treasure maps that required golf carts and going all over the island. Each team (2) started out with different clues and then when they found the right spot found another clue that all ended up at a treasure!! We had such a great time, and I'm looking forward to the next family vacation!!! Thanks G-mama!!!
This picture is not at the beach....I just thought it was cute.

Landon loved the beach and would have stayed all day were naps not a requirement.

Andi and her friend Allie at the crabbing dock in the marshes.

Addi as close to the sand as she would get. She did not love the beach or the pools.
