Weekend Getaway...

First of all...before I post about our fun weekend roadtrip I need to ask prayers for my Aunt Jackie. She's my dad's #2 older sister :-) She had a heartattack Saturday evening and had to have a stint put in. She is doing pretty good right now...out of ICU and not much damage was done to her heart. She is going to start on a new medication (I believe it's Plavix) and she told us that once you start it you can not miss a dose or it can be fatal....I guess you body starts relying on it to help clear the arteries....I'm not really sure but that sounds kind of scary in itself. She also needs to quit smoking and that is going to be hard and hopefully won't cause her a ton of stress :-) Just add her to your prayer list for a while...Thanks in advance.

Okay....on to our weekend getaway!! This was Darren's weekend off so we decided to take a road trip up to Clayton, GA where my grandparents live in the mountains. It was a fun four hour road trip with the kids. Our DVD player broke on the way...don't know what is up with that!! That made for lots of crying and fussing and not understanding why we couldn't watch all the movies we brought with us!!! But once we all got over it things got better :-0 I decided to try out the slide show thing for a change....enjoy...there is even music so turn on your speakers!! The song is really fitting... If you click on the slide show you can view the pictures individually and with captions.



A big THANK YOU to my grandparents for letting us come see you guys. We had a wonderful time and can't wait to come back. The kids are already asking when is the next time?!?!

Looks like y'all had fun! We need to get away BAD. We've been building this house for the past year and have only been away for 2 days at Christmas time...hopefully next month :) Oh, the rock is still with Noah as far as I know. He seems to be fine, though :) I'll keep our aunt in my prayers.

Your slide show is so cool! I love all your pictures and with the song I felt like I was watching a music video! Ben and I are getting away this Friday for my birthday. It will be our first without baby...a much needed night. Anyway, looks like you had a lot of fun, and I will be praying for your Aunt. Love you!

First of all, your grandpa looks like the dad off of orange county choppers....Paul Sr.

Second, your pictures are beautiful.

Your slide show was so sweet, especially that song. It looks like you had a great time. You deserved a little getaway. I hope your aunt continues to recover so well. She is definitely in our prayers. Missed you.

Ok, so your slide show and song made me cry. I think its time for a road trip of my own. Maybe over Memorial Day weekend.

Also, I had not heard about your Aunt Jackie. She will definately be in our prayers.

You are getting so good with your camera! It looks so beautiful where your grandparents live.

I'm glad you had a good time, and I will pray for your aunt.
