Maryland Visit Day 1

Last week Stephanie, Tanek and I went to Maryland to visit Richard, Heather and girls. Since I took SO many pictures I will post them a day at a time. We left early in the morning. We are all packed up and ready to roll. Tanek is not really a morning person, but he was very excited about going to visit his "cousins" and his Uncle Richard and Aunt Heather.

Always on an early morning trip a stop at Cracker Barrel for breakfast is a must. It was pretty cold that day too. We stopped in Georgia for a yummy breakfast.

We left early Friday morning and drove to Raleigh and spent the night with our good friend Jean. Once we got into South Carolina the leaves were beautiful. It really made the trip pleasant as the leaves were beautiful all the way up. Tanek loved seeing all the different colors and it helped to pass the time....a little.

We left Jean's early on Saturday morning as we wanted to surprise everyone by getting there early as they didn't expect us until Saturday night. I wish I had a dollar for every time I heard "are we there yet?" But that was NOTHING compared to the drive back home and I heard "how much farther"? and I want to see my DADDY and Papa. We got to Richard and Heathers a little before noon and they were surprised. As a matter of fact Richard and Kirsten were not even there. Richard had taken Kirsten to the barn where she teaches riding lessons to little ones.
For lunch on Saturday (since Kirsten wasn't there) we went to Baja Fresh. Kirky does NOT like Baja Fresh so it was the perfect time to go.

Tanek was SO excited to get there and see his cousins and Aunt and Uncle. We had a great visit.

They had gotten him some new Cars 2 Lego's so it wasn't very long after we got there that he and the girls put them together.

Emily's birthday was on Friday so we got to help her celebrate on Saturday and Sunday. Here she is opening her new American Girl doll clothes. She got a new American Girl doll so the new clothes was a hit.

A cute little pink robe and the cutest little fuzzy slippers.

Our two youngest and middle grand-daughters. Emily who just turned 6 and Hannah who is 11.

I love these girls.
Emily and Tanek playing on their parents phones. Angry birds I am sure!
Finally asleep after a very busy day.
