Visit to Aiken - December 2009

We were so blessed to be able to spend a couple of days in Aiken visiting wonderful friends! We drove to Atlanta and spent one night then went on to Aiken for 2 nights and are now back in Atlanta. It was such a fun time!

We stayed with our good friends, the Bryan's, and spent lots of time with them and the Laird's, as well as a few other families. It was wonderful!

Katie & "T" are only 5 weeks apart in age and have been friends since birth!

Ellie loved the Bryan's dog, Noelle.

"B" was born just about a week before we moved. He is a beautiful little boy, and he was really checking Ellie out! It was so cute!

A group of us went to eat after church. It was nice to visit with so many.

Ellie, true to form, was more drawn to the men than the girls! She loved "Mr. Brett" & "Mr. Shawn" especially (much to the dismay of "Mrs. Beth" & "Mrs. Melissa" who tried & tried to get her to pay more attention to them.)

The kids all had so much fun playing together. Gracie was especially thrilled that her Aiken BFF, LA, was able to come over & have a sleepover one night! It was so fun to see Gracie run down the porch steps to throw herself at LA when they arrived that night. It had been about 20 months since they'd seen each other!

Katie & "Mrs. Mary Beth" have always had a special relationship. MB appreciates Katie's craziness! :)

We are thankful for the blessing of having this wonderful time with our Aiken friends for life!
