Impromptu road trip!

Backing up a week...just before Cannan's little birthday shindig we headed south for a few days to say hello to the fam and wish Cannan's best friend Cash a Happy Birthday. We visited Mawmaw, aunt Karen, uncle Brooks & cousin Ashley in Mobile (kicking myself for not taking pictures. Could've been the 15 hour car ride that fried my brain???) then headed down to New Orleans to spend some QT with the Mitchell family. We absolutely LOVE this family and I could write a book telling you the millions of reasons why. Since Jaime has already put pen to paper I'll hold off. when she's published I'll blog about it and you can find out for yourself why this girl is so lovable.
One of Jaime's [many] talents is photography which you can find here and so we managed to steal some time away to do an impromptu photoshoot during a picnic in the park. This was by far the funniest photo session EVER!!! I wish I had video. Memories were made.

There are no coincidences.

These boys are my reminder.

March was the best kind of Madness

It's been a fun ride these past few months. We've been making fun little family memories, staying caught up and swinging from our coat strings trying to keep our feet grounded in St. Louis as our home prepares to depart on a four year journey into the Southeastern most state. I was just a tad disappointed that I won't be adding another lived in state to my list of 11 but I'm chocking it up to life purpose, providence and complete clarity of direction as the main reason for that.

On another note... I haven't caught you up on any postings since Cannan turned are a few tidbits from Cannan's 1st Birthday! Can you believe our baby boy is becoming a little man so fast!?
