Our Florida Trip- September 2012

We went to Florida a few weeks back.  I had to shoot a wedding on Saturday the 14th in Rosemary Beach so Taylor and I decided since our 8yr anniversary was the next day we would make a trip out of it.  Our good friends Dustin and Ashley decided to go with us as well.  We had so much fun.  We stayed in some really nice condos in Sea Crest which is right next to Rosemary on 30A.  We arrived on Friday evening and as soon as we walked in the condo we all headed out to the balcony to see the ocean.  Burke started pointing his little finger up and going "ooh ooh"  We all looked up and OH MY GOODNESS!!!  I have never seen that many dragonflies in my life.  It was so awesome!  There is a video below.  Saturday morning we hit the beach and the kids LOVED it.  Burke wasn't too sure about the sand but he loved the water.  I headed off to my wedding later that day which was SO MUCH FUN!!!!  Ben and Kelsey are from Little Rock.  I have known Kelsey's family for a long time and just love them.  Ben's family was equally as nice and welcoming.  The wedding was beautiful and everything was just perfect.  The rest of the week we vegged at the beach and by the pool.  Burke loved playing in the baby pool and going under the water.  He is a little fish.  The food was great but I think we can all agree our favorite dinner was the one we made at the condo.  It was a feast.  We made shrimp, chicken and steak kabobs, sauteed mushrooms, asparagus and squash oh and rosemary potato slices in the oven.  OH MY GOODNESS my mouth is watering just talking about it.  We talked to some people on the beach one evening and they said they had 2 stingray's swim past them one evening when they were out swimming.  
It was a great trip and a much needed vacation for us all.  I can't wait to go back with Burke and Winnie :)

Okay the video is below and you can't see all the dragonflies like I thought you could.  Oh well we all there will remember :)

Burke did great on the drive.  We turned him around so he could see out and also watch his Praise Baby which he wanted to watch the WHOLE time.  I love the music but it got a little old having to listen to it over and over again.

Can you see the dauphins?

It was nasty rainy for one full day.  The waves were crazy and the clouds were so dramatic.  It reminded me of the day we were evacuated from Sea Grove, FL 8yrs ago 2 days before our wedding :)

Alivia loves her some Taylor!  I love this picture!

Look at that face.  He LOVED the water.

Choroid Plexus Cyst (CPC) & Hydronephrosis

I have heard from many of your wondering what exactly these markers are and what could they mean. We received an information sheet from our genetics doctor that I can't seem to upload but I found this write up and thought I would share. The Choroid Plexus and Choroid Plexus CystsThe choroid plexus is an area of the brain that makes cerebrospinal fluid. Cerebrospinal fluid is the substance that surrounds the brain and spinal cord. The choroid plexus is not an area of the brain involved in thinking. Choroid plexus cysts are fluid-filled spaces in the choroid plexus kind of like blisters or bubbles. Choroid plexus cysts are not tumors or cancer, and they will disappear on their own usually between 24 to 26 weeks of pregnancy. Choroid plexus cysts, in and of themselves, are NOT a problem and do not interfere with brain function.They are seen in about 1% (1/100) of all second trimester ultrasounds. Choroid plexus cysts may be seen in one or both sides of the brain and the number, size…

Burke is 3!!!!!

Okay I have decided that time is going by way too fast.  Burke just turned 3 the beginning of June!  I can not believe it.  I feel like just yesterday I was in the hospital having the little guy!  We had a fun small family party and he is loving some super hero's right now so that was the theme :)  Silas really wanted to jump out when he walked in and yell surprise so that is what we did :)  Burke is super shy and he really wasn't a fan of it all.  Pibby and Pops got him his first bike and it is SO cute.   I picked up a balloon for all the kids and one special spider man one for Boo.  He has always loved balloons.  He said the sweetest thing....... he wanted to let his balloons go up to Mamie so she would know that it was his birthday.  I couldn't believe he let his special Spider Man one go.  It made me want to cry.  She should be here with us.  ANYWAYS, it was a fun day and I got some pictures of course and a few videos.  Happy 3rd Birthday Burkie BOO!  We love you so so…


Burke and Winnie just finished their first Vacation Bible School and they had a blast.  I did as well :)  I got to help in Burkes class which is always really interesting.  There were about 20 3yr olds in there so it was WILD :)  It was a fun 3 days of learning about how God is our light.  We sang "This little light of mine" everyday and Winnie is trying so hard to sing it.  She walks around the house with her little pointer finger up mumbling.  I love it.
