Visiting the Southern States

Our long drives to visit family have gone well thus far. We arrived safely to Alabama to visit Ron and enjoyed spending time with him. The kids just love Uncle Ron to pieces.

We had a full day of driving from Alabama to North Carolina on Friday. It just happened to be Chick-fil-A's Cow Appreciation Day, as well. CFA gives away a free entree to anyone wearing cow apparel or accessories and a free meal to anyone dressed head to toe in cow. So, Mom, the kids and I all dressed as cows. I made little faces for us to wear and we added spots to our clothing. We enjoyed a free breakfast in Opelika, Alabama and a free lunch in Augusta, Georgia.

We've been enjoying our time in North Carolina. The kids have had a blast playing with their cousins, Allie and Charlotte. They also got to see my cousin's children for a short bit on Tuesday. We've been swimming, jumping on a trampoline, and riding the golf cart.

I can't seem to make the pictures work, so this short post has the following (from the top): visiting Heather & her boys in Wilmington, Asa & Jenna jumping off the diving board at Uncle Bobby & Aunt Linda's, Rylee twirling as she jumps off the board, and Asa with Ron.

We appreciate your continued prayers that our trip is safe (accidents can happen even when you aren't driving long days!), that we can raise additional support, and that we will just enjoy this time together with our family!


  1. Oh, I wish I could see a pic of your whole family dressed as cows! How fun!

    I've been praying. Thanks for sending all the e-mails with details and prayer requests.
