Savannah Georgia 2011

This trip to Georgia was a complete blast! Every minute was jam-packed with fun. We started out with the Savannah rock and roll half marathon. Talk about the funnest race ever! 23,000 people makes for a very crowded race with lots of people watching. The first 7 miles of the race was total ghetto! It wasn't any neighborhood I would ever dare go into again but it was so much fun to see a whole other culture. And it made me feel pretty blessed too. The last half of the race was into some beautiful neighborhoods. I just wanted to stop and take pictures of every house. I loved it!

You can't go to Savannah without eating at Paula Deen's!
All the fried chicken, mac & cheese, black eyed peas and any other
good southern food you can think of!

I really wanted to see the ocean while we were there so
we took a quick trip to Tybee Island.

Our last day we spent touring the Bells' home town of Madison. It is so pretty there and I love all the historic homes. I'm pretty sure we walked about 1000 miles in the 4 days we were there but it was worth it! Can't wait til my next trip!

Viva Las Vegas

We wanted one more warm weekend before winter hit so we headed down to Las Vegas over the fall break. Our family has completely outgrown hotel rooms so this time we rented a nice little house.....with a pool all to ourselves. It couldn't have been better. The kids swam, swam and swam some more while Justin and I laid in the sun. It was so fun and relaxing. On the way home we drove down the strip to let the kids see. But other than that there was no reason to even leave the house (except for cafe rio and diet coke)

Max loved floating around

Justin got a nice sunscreen rub down

Lunch by the fun!

He's ready for a good swim!

Cool guy!

Vacation=ice cream for breakfast!

Me and my kids floating around.


I have a teenager? Really? I don't know how I feel about this but here it is. I'm a little behind on posting Hailey's birthday but she had a fun day with friends and presents....what more could a teenage girl ask for? Oh ya....a cell phone.
