GGPT09 in Pictures (Finally)

I've been so behind on the blog that I just realized that I never posted any pictures from our Great GrandParents Tour 2009. So here goes.

We had a Sunday trip to Dayton, Texas. We always love to see Granny. She's not quite the person that we all grew up loving, but she seems very happy in her own little world.
The bonus on this trip was getting to see my sweet cousin Codi who I love so much. I love that we are related but more than that, I love that we have become grown-up women friends.

First stop on our whirlwind vacation - New Orleans. Boy-o-boy did we have a good time. Everyone enjoyed the French Quarter.

We ate at Cafe du Monde twice in 24 hours. The music was fab and we were even able to pop into a couple of great art galleries. It really was a really fun time. And yes, we are all wearing tie-dye. The kids love it and I love it. People definitely stop and look when we pass by. It is like we are the hippy version of the Duggar family - only without the Jesus and I could be drunk by noon. (har har - making myself laugh now.)

First night at Grandma and Grandpa B.'s house and it was like our own music festival. Hmmm...maybe we are more like the Duggar's that what I realized. bwaa ha ha ha! :)

On our first morning in Pensacola and we had a great morning hike at Bay Bluffs Park. You might notice that Grandma B is holding all of the rocks that the kids have collected. In the end, we had to limit them to three a piece.

Grandpa B is giving SBW his first lesson in pine branch holding.

We've all decided that we want to buy our next vacation home on the beach in Pensacola.

Grandma and Grandpa B were troopers. They even went with us to the beach!

All of the fam poses for a photo at the Naval Air Museum. We all really enjoyed our visit to the museum!

Last stop, Houston for a short visit with Grandma and Grandpa Carr.

And this completes our summary of the GGPT09! Hope you've enjoyed!

P.S. We have over 300 pictures. I've been doing this for almost 2 hours. I think we are going to sign-up for one of those photo sharing sites so that the fam can see all of the pictures. Whew.

Shutterfly has a cool "make your own site" thing. Like I did for the BHE. I can show it to you sometime if you'd like. Then you can put all of them up and people can go to the link anytime they like.
