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?!?!
