My Old Kentucky HOME

We had a fantastic time in KY this past week. Beautiful weather, beautiful scenery, awesome family, wonderful friends, it was just perfect---except for the leaving part ;'o(. I planned on taking lots of pics, but we were busy non-stop so I didn't get as many as I had hoped. BUT we did get our family pictures taken with First Comes Love photography! It will be a while before we see them, but I know that I will be soooo pleased with them---thanks Tashi and Kena!

We met up with my brother (Uncle Mike and Aunt Teri) and his family the day we arrived, they were actually at the airport with my parents waiting for us----so sweet of them! Don and Phyllis--thank you so much for taking time out of your afternoon to visit with us, we had a wonderful time! Here's a photo to show you all just how much fun we had! And Gav got to meet his first cousin Madison for the FIRST time---she has grown so much, what a beautiful big girl she is!

Wednesday- Gavin got too meet his Great Grandfather---Papaw Lloyd for the first time, just precious! I have a video of them to post later ;o). He also got to meet his Aunt Kelly and Great Aunt Mary for the first time---they were just smitten with him & he was full of smiles for them! That afternoon my dear friend ANGEL had all of our buddies over for a meet and greet for baby G. We had the BEST time...lots of laughs, discussion, and FOOD! Here is a picture of our babies...ALL BOYS (how crazy is that?) except for sweet Kinley (who isn't pictured---they had already left). Thanks Angel and Jean---my trip wouldn't have been complete without this gathering!

Thursday--family photos. (Aunt Kelly and Aunt Mary came to visit again).

Friday--Dress Rehearsal for Mrs. Britta Richmond's wedding. And Saturday was the BIG Day! Gavin got to meet many people that I had been anticipating. But---I was so caught up in the moment that I got ZERO pictures! I have to mention two special young ladies that Gavin just loved---Liv and Catherine! They both held and hugged him and he was sooo HAPPY! Britta was nothing short of GORGEOUS on her Wedding Day...it was a beautiful wedding and good times---Congrats to the Richmond's!

And during this visit Gavin got to ride the fourwheeler that I spent many many days on when I was just 5 years old. Pappa fixed it just for Gavin! And he got to ride the rhino with mommy and daddy!

All in all, this trip was just what I needed & I'm already trying to figure out a way to get us back there! Please pray that we make it back to Kentucky PERMANENTLY! Thanks Nanna and Pappa for everything-we love you-and are so glad that we got to visit!
