Charlotte visit

Cooper & I had a great trip to Charlotte catching up with old friends, celebrating a lil' baby on the way and hanging out! Unfortunately, we didn't get to see everyone we would have liked, but we'll be back again soon hopefully! Enjoy a few picts from our time in NC!

Lauren & Payton + me & Cooper
(Payton loooooooved baby Cooper)
Good thing - she has a baby brother or sister on the way very very soon and got lots of practice this past weekend being the big sister.

Caroline, Martha, Lauren & me.
We hosted a small diapers & dessert shower for Lauren

I made chocolate eclairs in a jar for the baby shower.
Clearly, I was proud of them if I'm showing you all. :)
They were easier than I thought and the perfect size!

Payton & Cooper playing

Jones & Cooper
His daddy John and I were good friends in college.
His mom Lauren has been a tremendous help with ideas for making our baby food.

This picture is so special to me!
Meg got my name off the Queens babysitters list in 2001.
I started babysitting Alex when she was 6 mo. old. 2 years later Steele came along and I babysat them all through college. They were in our wedding and are such a dear family to us. They are now 9 & 11 yrs old and holding lil' Cooper! Time flies huh?!

This pict is me, Tasha & Angela with our lil' ones.
We were Chi O's at Queens and share lots of fun memories from our time together!

4th of July at the Beach!

Our 4th of July was spent on St. George Island with the Hankinson crew! We had a great time - despite losing power a few times (the whole island... eeek!) The weather was great and the fireworks were awesome! A big thanks to Nana & PopPop for having us down! Lots of pictures to enjoy! *

Cooper & I leave this afternoon for our 1st road trip with just us 2! We're headed to Charlotte to spend some time with my college buddies and let them meet Cooper for the 1st time! Can't wait to be there! Enjoy the weekend!

A new favorite family photo - yes, Lucy joined us at the beach this time!

I couldn't decide which one I liked best - so figured I'd share both

Family photos - 5 of 5

You'd think I would know better than to attempt to take pictures at 6:00 when the sun is still waaaay to bright and the wind was blowing ridiculously, but we made the most of it before the kiddos were hungry for dinner and ready for bed. Here are a few of our pictures on the beach!

wondering what this stuff is......

"oooh, I can pick it up....."

"Woah, this safe?"

Me & Elisabeth and yes, we have on the same dress in different colors.

They are from Target and they are fabulous! You should get one too!

We had a 3rd one that we wanted Amber to wear, but it didn't happen.
