Things that have happened lately that don't fit into any blog on their own so I lumped them all together.

Last month I had the pleasure of spending the evening with several members of my dad's family that I haven't seen in about 20 years. Back l to r- Kathy, my second cousin, me, Karen, also a second cousin, Scott, Gloria, mom. Front l to r- My 1st cousins once removed, Bill and Barbara Brock, Esther, CC, Dad and Robert.
CC spends time with Rybolt Miller every week now that Erin and I have arranged a baby swap when we would normally need babysitters. They are very good friends.
Robert and Esther help dad with breading the fish, above.
Do you think that CC looks like Delaney Mitchell (on her dad's shoulders here) ? We do.
Dear mom, when you leave your make-up on the stairs I like to play with it.

Trip to Maine: Part 2- Celebrating Laurence

While in Maine we had much to celebrate (a 40th birthday, a baptism, and a wedding!). The first weekend we were there Laurence was baptized into the household of God. I am very proud to be among his godparents.
After the baptism, BD and LM hosted a lovely party at the cottage. As always, flowers graced every corner.

Brothers in the kitchen.

CC and Laurence.
Rob and his beautiful nephew.
Two proud granddads. Big Daddy Burlington and Larry Daniels (who travelled from Georgia to come :)
Nonnie and the effervescent Anna B.
Stephie and her mother-in-law, Susan Daniels. What a pretty pair!

We love you little Laurence. See you in October. xoxo Laurie
