Georgia Trip

A week and a half ago I took the boys on our first solo road trip to Georgia to spend time with my family. I was a little nervous considering that Griffin is not a fan of the car.  The ride down went just as I suspected: horribly. It rained for a lot of the drive AND Griffin screamed for about 75% of the trip. My ears were bleeding by the time we got to Atlanta!
 
 Griffin was excited to be out of the car by the time we got there! 

The first night I was in town I was so excited because I got to meet up with some Twitter/blog girls! I love my friends who live in my computer:) 
Amy, yours truly, Hether, Amy T, & Stephanie
We met at Chuy's and I loved getting to actually talk to these girls! It was so fun & much needed after a stressful day of driving. Aren't they all so cute?!

The next day we got to visit with lots of family. My cousin Blakely has three little boys ages 4 and under. We don't get to see them nearly enough & I knew I wanted to get all of our boys together! 
 This is what taking a picture of FIVE little boys looks like--ha! It's like herding cats!
Ashton (4), Collin (2 1/2), G (2 1/2), Griffin (9 months), & Embry (14 months)
This was the best group shot I got that day...these boys were busy! I love that we both have boys. I just wish we lived closer so we could play more often!

We also went to see my Papa and Carol. My boys are so lucky to have 2 sets of great grandparents that they will get to know. Again, it makes it so hard to live far away...I wish my boys could see their extended family more often.
Is this not the sweetest picture? Papa loved seeing his great-grandboys! 

We also got to go back to Zoo Atlanta while we were there. Along with every single school in metro Atlanta. Grayson loves the zoo & was SO excited to go. He loved the rhino because he saw him pooping...typical boy. Ha! 
I had to make the boys take a picture with Willie B. I love the way Griffin is looking at the gorilla! 
Grayson had such a great time & loved seeing all the different animals!

We spent the next day at my Grandmother and Granddaddy's house. Blakely & the boys came up too and it was a fun visit. Granddaddy has a great driveway for riding the plasma car & that is what the big boys did all morning! I can't believe how fast G can go on that thing! 

I absolutely love this picture. I seriously can't believe we have 5 boys between the two of us! They are all so sweet. Grayson has been talking about the boys since we got back & keeps telling me that "I like my cousins. They're nice." We'll have to visit again soon!

I'm so glad we got to go for a few days & spend time with everyone. I don't see my grandparents and cousins nearly enough!
