This weekend, I took Ivalee (and Craig and Amy brought Nathan too!) to meet my (our) grandparents and family in Georgia. It was a whirlwind trip, putting 800 miles on the new car in just three days, but it was a very good trip!! We got to spend good time with everyone and though it was quick, nothing really felt rushed, so that was good.
with my Aunt Barbara
Her newest trick is to mimic facial expressions when you’re talking to her. She’ll move her mouth like she’s trying so hard to talk. It’s pretty cute. That’s what’s happening here, I think.
Mendy was sad that she and Derek and Wesley didn’t get to come, so we Skyped with them so Pappaw could “meet” Wesley.
The Goebels … as they really are.
with Mama Dot — my mom’s stepmom. She and my Pappaw have been married for 19 years.

This is Mrs. Rita Harris — my mom’s best friend, for whom I was named. (She also reads my blog! Hi, Mrs. Rita!! I’ll send you a copy of this picture asap! Glad you got to hold her / meet her / come for a visit!!)

We tried Skype with Granny, but she didn’t really understand what was happening. Aunt Janice and Aunt Karen enjoyed it, though! And Mendy got to show Wesley off again.
She’s talking to Aunt Janice here! 🙂
