Summer 2012 Family Road Trip, 2. Birmingham

Stop 2. Birmingham, AL

We hadn't been to Birmingham as a family since last fall, so it was good to be back at our old stomping grounds to catch up with family and friends. We got to spend lots of good quality time with the family, and also catch up with Barry, the Brooms and baby Charlotte, and the Longs with Emmie and meet their latest addition, JJ. Those meals spent reconnecting with friends, kissing babies and sharing smiles, mean so much to us! And the time with Larry's family was full of sweet moments- lots of good food, swimming, a parent's night out, Jaclyn and Georgia's movie date, visiting Granny, playing golf in the backyard, a fierce game of Trouble... Thanks to all we got to visit with for your time, and we missed many sweet friends who were traveling elsewhere that week- hope to catch up with y'all soon!

Dinner at The Depot in Helena

Super smiley to see Jaclyn and Joseph!
Georgia also enjoyed her afternoon out with Jaclyn to go see the movie Brave!

In the backyard with Uncle Jon- Georgia found a "treasure" of course!
Hmmm- what's this little cutie up to?!
Aunt Heather caught her before she could find mischief!
Lincoln worked on his short game...
for hours...
in the hot HOT Alabama heat! Look at those pink cheeks!
Sweet sisters!
Thanks, aunt Janet, for our super-cute 4th of July shirts! We model them well! :)
No thanks, Papa, I think I'll hold on to this one!

The Girls, self- portrait
Georgia lines one up...
Hole in one!! ;)
Sitting on daddy is funny! So is watching old home movies!!
Rosemary is in her super-cling-to-mama stage anyway, but with being away from home and so many faces at once, she would barely leave my arms  all week! But, for some reason- maybe bc he slightly resembles her tall, darker-haired Dada, she decided Joseph was safe! She would go willingly to him with no tears! And so this 18-yr old college-bound cousin got some extra quality time with Rosemary that week!

Mmmmmm- PIE!!

Hmmm- looks like some serious TROUBLE...

Trouble for Aunt Heather!! ;)
It was a sweet visit with Granny too, and we even got her in a picture with her youngest great-grandchild, thanks to the safe arms of Joseph! ;)

Love the AU pics and even if your kids never go to school there, they will have these precious pictures of growing up visiting the AU wall. Was RR eating it? Know everyone in Bham loved visiting with all the wonderful Hipps and swimming in the hotel pool.
