reagan was thrilled that we went on a horse and buggy tour of the city!
unfortunately, this was a little too close for comfort.
but our smart boy was pleased as punch to announce to everyone within earshot, "Horsey POO POO!" we actually didn't need the annoucement; it was quite obvious to all of us. but we appreciate the gesture just the same.
savannah saw more revolutionary war action than civil war action as displayed by this revolutionary war cannon.
everyone loves a picture of themselves from the back, right? thomas, miss scarlett, grandma sandy, reagan, and grandpa.
as we were walking around the city on saturday night, something quickly became apparent. i kept noticing that nobody was really on a "date" on this typical date night. there were people everywhere, but they were mostly sticking to their own gender. i just dismissed it as a big girls nite out or guys nite out. i was sort of right:
scarlett really enjoyed being held in this position as we walked around on monday.
finally, a picture of me. just because i am vain(and usually the photographer).
we were able to drive down to waycross on sunday for scarlett's blessing. it was nice to have so many friends with us on this special day!

it was so bright that i was having the hardest time keeping my eyes open. it is hard to do my movie star smile when my eyes are watering because of the sun.
you may have noticed that scarlett is wearing a pink onesie in all of the pictures. that is because right after the blessing, she decided to EXPLODE(i tried to match that color to the color of the poop on her dress)all over her dress and my mother, who was holding her at the time. we made a quick getaway to the bathroom and while grandma cleaned off her clothes, i stripped scarlett down. and then i tried not to cry when i saw how bad the damage was. this is what i get for buying her a silk blessing dress. i painstaking searched for the exact dress that i wanted her to wear. interestingly enough, i found this one at gapbaby. it was love at first sight and it was on sale! i didn't allow anyone to touch it and i never touched it without properly washing and drying my hands. it stayed wrapped in tissue paper for months. and this is the thanks that i get:
this is just the damage from the back, it went everywhere.
i took it to the dry cleaners this week. they didn't seem very enthusiastic about this little project. we'll find out tomorrow how it worked out! if anything i hope the front comes out stain free so that i can at least get a few pictures of her wearing it.
