Well it has been a whirlwind couple of weeks but we are back.....for now. Thursday, May 10th, Grandma, Grandpa and mom drove down from Knoxville to our house. Ben got a truck from work and took all of us to the Marta station where we caught the train down to the airport.
Traveling with a 7th month old was stressful. First, when we bought our tickets, I tried my darndest to include Miller's info but the website kept messing up, so I called a few weeks before the flight and they said it was taken care of. Of course it was not so I had to deal with it when I got to the airport. Going to security was a mess. While holding Miller, take off my shoes, take the carseat off of the stroller, take our liquids out of the diaper bag, collapse the stroller and tell them it would not fit but doing it anyway. Then of course I was right and the stroller did not fit so they had to wrestle with it and all the while watching the people behind us getting impatient waiting. Then we gathered up all of our stuff, got to the gate and had just enough time to feed Miller and then pack up the stroller and carseat.
Miller was very good for the flight. A few times he got ready to whine but we just shoved some food in his mouth. He ended up falling asleep and slept through landing.
That night was the rehearsal dinner. It was at a mexican restaurant on a lake which was very windy.
Friday was the wedding and we woke up to it pouring down raining. Guess what? It was an outdoor wedding with no plan B. We ran to walmart so we would be prepared then came back and got ready. I did Kelsey's hair in an all around braid.
Miller had the super cute outfit, unfortunately it was raining so he was covered up.
A few pictures of the tent from the reception. It was so pretty!
The bride and groom, asked us to wear white and khaki, however, with the weather we were all covered up. Below (from left to right) Sam, Veronica, Ann with Miller, mom, Ross and Kelsey.
The next day, Miller was a mess after he ate some lunch so we gave him a bath. Well during the bath, he left behind a little present. Lovely!
Saturday we went to uncle Larry and aunt Margie's house. Miller played with his cousin Channing. Yeah, she is a whole year older than him. She is just cute and tiny and he is on the bigger side.
We went to a chicken place called Eischen's for lunch. Knox is sharing his sippy cup with Miller.
He was so tired after lunch. Thank goodness it was a long ride so he could sleep.
This is my cousin Callie who is 6 months older than me. Her son Knox is 7 months older than Miller. Knox is on the bigger side and Callie would say that she loved holding a little baby when she had Miller. That cracked me up because everyone always says how big Miller is.
That night we went to some horse racing tracks. Mom and I had never been so we were so excited. We had the best time just hanging out and we never even placed a bet.
Sunday was Mother's Day and Miller's gift to my mom was to take a nap on her.
We went to a lunch at my aunt and uncles house. The kids had a great time playing and we all just relaxed and hung out. Grandma was so excited about this trip because it meant that she got to have all her great grandbabies together. We had to get a picture of this. From left to right, Grandpa Norm, Knox, Miller, Grandma Mary Alice, Channing and Hayden.
Miller had so much fun in this wagon. Him and Channing got along so well.
We left Monday midday and Miller was even better on that flight. Some prissy ladies in front of us looked so mad to have a baby behind them and they even turned around at the end of the flight and told us how good he was. We were home for 4 days before we packed up for our next trip.
