Fun 4th of July Weekend

First off, Carl's sister, Amber, and their family came to visit this past weekend. Her husband just started the MBA program at UGA and will only be 3 hours away for the next year. We have already gone to visit them once, and we are so excited to do it again and again.

Second, on Saturday, we found the found the coolest place in Birmingham--the McWane Science Center. It was the best thing for kids--it had so many hands on things that kids could play with. It had two little cities made for kids 5 and under. It also had an IMAX theatre. It was the bomb. We could have stayed their all day, and we practically did. I now know where the kids and I will be living this summer. If you can't reach me at home, try there. And, if you are ever in Birmingham, you have to go! It is the coolest place ever!

Saved the best for last--the two cutest babies ever. CJ and his cousin Hallie. CJ's got to gain some more weight because Hallie is a month younger than him and has got him beat!

Thanks for posting the pics!

Seriously, we had a great time with you guys and you were incredible hosts. Carl, thanks for the hookup to the museum and for giving us the tour of your sweet job. Also, thanks for sharing all your Coke on ice with me! :) Courtney, your cooking was amazing. The "Cowboy" cookies warm out of the oven, the steak & potatoes dinner, the biscuits and gravy breakfast...it was all amazing!

Thanks for the good times C&C!

PS - By the way, if anyone is thinking about relocating to Birmingham...it is gorgeous!

I tried to pick up cj and hallie out of the picture but it didn't work. that smile is just AUGGGGH! I WANT TO HOLD HIM! He is so cute. And Hallie is ginormous. That was my first thought and my second was she looks just like amber. :) (Just from amber's baby pictures) Sounds like we missed a FUN weekend.

Anna, I hope amber doesn't read that comment. reads... First, i thought she looks ginormous. second, she looks like amber.

Amber, i don't think you look ginormous. i don't know what the next step down is from there, but that's what i think you look like.
