We've got a crawler!

Brooke has been pushing herself backwards and rolling to get where she wants to go. She figured out today that crawling forward is much easier!!! We're so proud of our little miss sunshine.

This past weekend we headed to Alpharetta, GA to see my sister, Lisa, and her family. This was the 1st time we drove from G-ville to their only took 2 hours!! Of course we were going about 80 mph the whole way!! It's so nice to be able to see them anytime now. Here are some pics from the weekend before we left and at their house. Our future tennis star! Hopefully we can retire early. :)
Scott loves to shape her "doo".... this is his Ace Ventura quaff

Scenic Sundays

This is the 2nd Sunday that we have gone to the local mountains to go for a hike. This morning we went to Table Rock State Park. It was beautiful! There were waterfalls everywhere. Here are some shots that we caught along the way. Walking along the trail (we forgot her backpack...we had to carry her the whole way!)

Brooke was so excited when she saw the water...
It was so peaceful out there... I didn't want to leave!
Went for a swing afterwards...
Table Rock Mountain...
Back at our place...eating some green beans!

Settlin' Down

It is hard to believe that we have only lived down in Greenville for a little over a month. Things have been so crazy since we moved down that now we are FINALLY getting to enjoy the new town we live in!! Last weekend we headed downtown to the professional bike race going on. Caught some pics of the town you'll see some pics of Caesars Head State Park, where we went on a 4 mile hike this morning. We are loving being able to finally explore and enjoy this area!
I love this building on Main Street...I think it is the Chamber of Commerce but I'm not exactly sure. :)
Roxy thought this guy was real!!
Me and my girl waiting for the race to start.
Hiking up to see Raven Cliff was beautiful.
You can see the waterfall in the middle of the picture.
Roxy was exhausted when we stopped!
So was Brooke! We couldn't believe she fell asleep on the hike back down! Beautiful view of the mountains
I was trying to take a picture of a hawk I saw.
It was such an amazing view..

Pawley's Island, SC

Total relaxation and family bonding. That is the best way for me to describe our vacation last week at the beach. This is the 1st year that Mom, Lisa, Devin, the kids, Scott, Brooke, and I have ever gone away together. It was such a wonderful week!! We celebrated Mom's 60th birthday...which was so special for all of us to be together. We also celebrated the closing of our house in PA. Thanks to Susanne's help up there...thank you SO much. We miss you! Here are some shots of the week. Me and Tinkey (that's our nickname for her...I know... random nickname!!)
Nightly walk on the beach...
Little photo session with Brooke.
Date night for Scott and I! Posing with Adelyn and Caden before we headed out.
