Well the last little bit has been kinda crazy... From New Beginning's... Baby Shower... a planned trip... to an unexpected trip... I now have taken a moment to stop and breath! To start at the first... all of my invitations turned out great! Everyone loved them... I then began planing a trip to Alabama with my family to go visit my Grandpa... whose health was not so great... we got the trip all planed my work time was covered and I was gearing up for the baby shower and New Beginning's when I got a phone call from my mom saying that my papa had passed away Thursday night. Suddenly all my plans and everything now changed! So I did the baby shower Saturday morning... went to a birthday party for Dallas' cousin Jackson... began packing for our 12:30ish flight to Birmingham! My dad, mom, sister (Jayme) & her little boy Ryker began our trek! I was way impressed with how good Ryker did on the flight and the whole time. So we got in to Atlanta to discover our 9:00ish flight was canceled! LUCKY US... we ended up on a flight leaving at 10:00ish not to bad... so we found our gate and took a nap! We ended up in Birmingham got to our hotel at around 12:00 on Sunday! I requested a shower... my mom and Jayme headed to Walmart to get Ryker supplies... and my dad got Ryker to take a nap... we then headed to Papa's house to visit all of our family...almost everyone was there! I saw cousins I don't even remember the last time I saw them...(Just from pictures) and we sat around a talked all afternoon and got to spend a lot of good time with my family. Monday was the viewing and funeral... It was such a nice day...On Tuesday we spent a little more time at Papa's helping my Uncle Terry package up Papa's fish for the long ride to Florida. We got to spend some time with our grandma Mary and had a nice peaceful time at the cemetery before we headed back to the airport... It was a rushed trip... but so wonderful because of the time we spent with family and the joy in celebrating Papa. Pictures will soon follow!
