MS Vacation

We recently returned from a trip to Mississippi.
We enjoyed seeing family and friends.
It was nice to have good meals that I did not have to cook.
It was also a time to have other people watch Millie (even though she is not fond of anyone else).
Millie finally let my mom pick her up, without crying, after being together for 5 days.
To say she really likes me is an understatement.

I did not take my camera out the entire trip. However, I did take plenty of pictures on my phone.

We started the trip in Madison.

Nick and I enjoyed a date out on the town while trying to avoid tornadoes.
This was a plate of fried green tomatoes topped with crab meat and a sauce that was a perfect for dipping our rolls. It was so good that I forgot to take the before picture. 

We also had a lot of play time with cousin Carsten.
The next day was mostly spent at lunch with a friend. We enjoyed a good bloody mary, and I witnessed my first public proposal.
 The whole restaurant clapped. It was very exciting!
 I know this picture is blurry, but it was taken from a few tables away on a camera phone.

We stayed at lunch for 3 hours enjoying ourselves while these kids were riding around Toys R Us.
These orange tulips were in the shopping center, and they were gorgeous.
This is Sunday morning. Millie was reading the paper before we headed to Greenville.
We found this baby girl when we got there.
After she left with her parents, Millie and I spent the rest of our week with my parents and Stephen Small.
I have no pictures of Millie with grandparents. As I mentioned earlier, it took 5 days for my mom to hold her without crying. And Millie doesn't cry with just my mom. She reacts the same with Nick's mom, my sister, Nick's sister, and if you are a man, just stay away. Except for her dad. She really likes her dad too.

We also made a drive to the country to see my friend and her sweet baby.
 Nick and I also embraced technology while we were apart.
This is us talking using 'facetime' through facebook. It was really neat to be in different states and still be able to see each other.

I did a little shopping too. This is Stephen riding the boat at Stein Mart. I think boating is in his genes.
 I thought this fish bedspread was cute. If Millie was a boy I might have bought it.
We came home Thursday to a beautiful day.
Pizza sticks always make good travel food. 
Millie also turned 9 months old on Thursday.
So I decided to whip out my camera and take some pretty outside pictures.
 Trying to get the leaf out of her mouth.
   Watching Stephen run around. These girls love him.
 I love this picture because they are matching in their orange and blue and skipping. Cute isn't? Especially the small one.
 Playing with my workout ball. It was the only ball we could find at the time.
We enjoyed our trip, and we are glad to be home. I am not glad about the pile of laundry, but that can wait til Monday.

  1. What fun, fun photos! I was scared of men (other than Big George) too (at least that's the story I've been told.) Millie is just darling. I love the photos of her with Laurie Betty, and the photo of Nick and Stephen Small skipping is absolutely spectacular!
