we are back!
it has been a few days & we are slowly getting back into the swing of things & driving 1,100 miles through the night (twice) is all just a hazy dream.
my niece, mollyanne katheryne was born 5.29.13 // 8 lbs // 21 inches
we left saturday (june 2) & arrived sunday afternoon.
those last 40 miles were the hardest because of the torrential downpour.
i was in a i-only-got-2 hours-of-sleep fog when we arrived.
the rest of the week was spent mostly around mary & darrins house.
helping mary with the baby,
playing with the kids,
watching it rain,
running to target,
going for starbucks,
normal, every day stuff.
which is my favorite.
elsie, joe, & my mom did make it out one day to explore greenville.
and on saturday darrin, kami, elsie, joe, mom, bentley & addy had a fun day canoeing at a state park about an hour away.
