Our Visit to NY (Part 1)

Here are the photos of our trip to NY! I must say the flight was smooth. Kaden got a double ear infection THE DAY BEFORE we left (I am NOT joking) BUT we caught it this time and did NOT end up in the E.R. Boys slept like bears at NeNe & PaPa's house, and we made tons of memories. But of course the whole purpose of our trip was NeNe's 60th Birthday and Aunt Courtney's Baby shower. It was a joy to be there for both milestones.
Mike had considered flying in for 36 hours but the times to travel and his intense work schedule would not allow. We missed him dearly. I must say that the family got burned out playing Baseball with Parker. NeNe got Parker a plastic baseball bat and that thing did not leave his side. It managed to stay at NeNe's house (since we couldn't bring it on the airplane) but we have to get one for here now :( It is in his blood...and I must say that boy has an ARM...Look out Major League Baseball-Parker is in training :)
Kaden ended up bonding with NeNe and for that we are grateful for. He didn't know them that well. He got to sleep every night at NeNe & CowBoy's house. Parker and me stayed at some family friends *(who are not living in their home for the summer); they run the church camp near by (BaYouCa) and Uncle Brian & Aunt Courtney stayed in the guest room. So, Parker, Me, Uncle Phil & Aunt Mir-Mir (Miracle) all had a sleepover at the Warner's house. The nights were late but worth it.
Big family news as I stated earilier was the upcoming arrival of Riese Baby #4. Uncle Phil & Aunt Miracle are expecting their first baby on Kaden's Birthday :) What an honor and sweet little blessing this will be. We are all praying for a little girl, but ultimately a healthy baby! They find out the middle of August the baby's gender and we are so excited.
Here are some of our highlights...the Boys LOVED going over to camp and hanging out with Cousins Deanna & Rieley.

On Sunday Night, July 3, the Parker family had a big cookout and bonfire at Cousin Chad & Rachel's house. It was fun to have Aunt Jackie & Uncle Milo come up (the Newly weds in the family :)

 Here they are...The soon to be mommy & Daddy with Baby Boy Riese in the belly:) We are so excited to meet the little guy @ Christmas time (due to arrive Sept. 25th).
 Plan B! Smores on the grill! Fire was to big and hot to let the little kids near-so we roasted marshmallows on the grill :)
 Kaden in his glory....he LOVED cousin Casey's horn and the lights on his truck "Whee!"
Parker eating his first Smore with NeNe...he liked it till it got messy-then he was done!
This concludes part 1 of our time to do part 2...the Baby Shower!

Enjoy all the photos :)
