Travelin’ cross country

If you are my friend on Facebook, then you probably followed along with my mobile uploads and such as my family and I made our way across the states to Florida….that’s a 15+ hour drive, for those of you who were wondering. miss to ala

Not an easy trip when you have two kiddos in the back seat either. Thank the good Lord for portable DVD players!! We own 3 – one for each child and then one just in case one of the other ones breaks : )photo

The hubby and I were curious about New Orleans, so we took a little detour and quickly realized upon arrival, that the Big Easy is not a good place for children;NO for web and so we kept driving.

Finally we made it to Destin – our final destination. Ultimately we went there for my little sister’s wedding;beth and drew on boat for web but we were really hoping to catch up on some much needed R&R as well…no such luck.

The week was packed: from tying ribbons on programsprograms

and putting together favor boxes (yes, this is my sister’s now husband; but at the time, I’m sure he was thinking “what have I gotten myself into?”…boxes just kidding, he was a great sport!)

to parties (more on this later) batch party

and pampering.pampered (actually, that part wasn’t so bad *wink*)

It was almost a relief when the big day finally arrived.photo for web

My sister was a beautiful bride and the wedding was gorgeous… and very personal – my dad married the couple, and the rest of us were in the wedding: I was matron of honor, the boys were the ring bearers,family pic for web and my sister-in-law and brothers were also a part of the wedding party.

Anyway, that is just a quick re-cap of our trip. I kind of promised on Monday I would try and post something about it this week so there it is. I have lots more photos (most of these were from my cell phone) and stories, so stay tuned…but don’t hold your breath because I don’t know when I’ll get to them : )

Your sister is so lovely : ). Very sweet. I am glad you could be a part of her day! I love the New Orleans picture. I imagine you would have taken MANY more had you been kid free! Hope you are well! I know you must be so busy now with pictures, right?
