She also got to get in the ocean, but only put her toes in because the water was colddddd! Vi fit right in with the beach crowd by sporting her sunglasses (until she decided they were better chew toys than sun protectors) and her beach dresses. | Vi talking philosophy with Uncle Ert

36: TEETH | See... I wasn't lying. Here they are, two right on the bottom. | first

38: first | MOTHER'S DAY

39: Vi's first mother's day. Well technically she was being cooked last mother's day and was in fact in attendance last mother's day, but this was her first official mother's day. She is so lucky to have a mom, grandmother, and two great grandmothers! Vi gave her mommy Megamind, the movie and some really nice cards. We then went to Candy and Coco Pops for a crawfish boil Coco Pops bought a LOT of crawfish. That's why Mia looks so surprised in the picture. She saw almost 40 pounds of crawfish! Vi laughed when Uncle Ert tried to put a crawfish on Candy but she doesn't know about it. We ate as much crawfish as we could but we still had lots leftover. The next day we celebrated more mother's day with Aunt Judy. We had yummy crab cakes (well Vi had baby food) and cinnamon scones.

44: first | STEPS | Viola took her first official (more than two) steps to walk to mom on June 21st, 2011. She was so proud and her dad couldn't be more proud either. He even put videos up on Youtube!

46: Atlanta Trip - Arrival & Day 1 July 16th-, i’m not exactly sure what the recipe for us isbut i know it’s not driving across the armpit of America (the South) overnight. and yet...that’s exactly what the Missus and i elected to do.we stopped a few times as the call of nature and fuel made these stops a necessity. we stopped in gas station was attached to a casino and boasted CLEAN least i hope that what that was...rather than a command to do so.the next place we stopped was in Mississippi...not as bad..but the car full of scary jesus-people that parked next to us made me want to vacate ASAP.the final stop before the arrival was Alabama...the goth-girl behind the counter of the gas station stands as a vivid argument to students that education IS important...anyway...after making it to Papa Bob & Nana Jean’s house about 8:30amthe Missus and I enjoyed their company for the rest off the reality, while the were glad to see us, they were MUCH more happy to see the STAGGERY baby...this is fine w/ us as we’re more than glad to let other able-bodied adults chase her around...we relaxed and recovered from our drive and began to plot the remainder of the week. we are both VERY tired. | Atlanta Trip - Day 2 July 17th- today was pretty good...the Missus and i both got some much needed sleep. The Staggery Baby slept until 7am (which is normal) and hung out...b’fast was TASTY waffles and the kiddo was happy to eat eggs & an English muffin...otherwise, we just hung out today and enjoyed each others company. Papa Bob watched some golf tournament that some foreigner seems to have won. Uncle Kyle & Uncle Keith came over and brought Papa Bob a new computer...dinner was Jean’s famous tacos and they were VERY good...even the kid enjoyed it. Aunt Jody & Cousin Chase came over for dinner and we all visited for a bit...stories were told and discussions all a good evening. | Atlanta Trip - Day 3 July 18th- today was a shopping day...after b’fast, The Staggery Baby, The Missus, Nana Jean, Papa Bob and I ventured out to stores and shopping areas. Our 1st stop was Trader Joe’s the Missus was on a quest for some was procured and was awful...i mean...really? tastes like its been sitting out for a week. lunch was next..Atlanta’s version on meskin foodit was ok but not what we are accustomed to being from the tex-mex capital of the world...still...its Georgia...what are ya gonna do? The Missus & Nana Jean went shopping afterward while Papa Bob & I watched the kid AND SHE REFUSED TO NAP. grrr...she’s evil...i respect that. The Missus & I then accompanied Papa Bob to Costco & World Market...lots a shopping today...after we returned a VERY tired baby was put to bed and we enjoyed the relative quiet...dinner was had (spaghetti..yum) when Uncle Mark’s been a very laid-back trip so far..we’re enjoying the relaxing day and look forward to one tomorrow. | first | trip to Atlanta

48: Atlanta Trip - Day 4 July 19th- another relaxing day...Papa Bob left early this AM for a planned golf trip with some of his pals.the rest of us got up and relaxed in the morning...Uncle Kyle & Aunt Sandra had to catch a flight in the afternoon so we had a big lunch & Uncle Keith and Aunt Jody took them to the airport (Sweet Jebus it sounds like I’m writing an episode of the Waltons-“Reckon them Revenuers gonna come up here an’ git us Pa?” “I dunno John-Boy, I just don’t know”. -) anyhoo...we played w/ Vi for the remainder of the day and when she went to bed, Nana Jean watched her whilst the Missus & I went to see the new Harry Potter movie. I gotta say..not too shabby (i kinda wish i’d watched part 1 again first) moved pretty quick and was a satisfying end to the series..we liked it and plan to see it again. tomorrow we’re taking the kid to a petting zoo & to spend the night w/ the aforementioned Uncle Keith, Aunt Jody & Cousin Chase. | Atlanta Trip - Day 5 July 20th- the weather foiled our plans of going to the petting zoo but we had to get out of the house so we decided to head out shopping...this appears to be our new favorite hobby for bad weather days. (and apparently good weather days too). Around dinner time we headed over to Keith, Jody, and Chase's. We enjoyed hamburgers for dinner and then played a rousing game of Apples to Apples. As I can recall Moriah was the ultimate winner.

49: Atlanta Trip- Day 6 and 7 Daddy was having so much fun he forgot to blog the last few days of the trip.
