Spring Break Trip to Arkansas

My sweet Aunt Carol from California (whom Caroline is named after) flew in on St. Patrick's day, and the two of us took the two kiddos to Arkansas for the week, while Tony was on mission trip. Here are some photos from the trip. I have so many blogs to catch up on this weekend, so bear with me! We had a wonderful time and miss our Arkansas family already!


Uncle Collin and Caroline

Sweet Caroline, getting chubbier and chubbier

Gettin' some Aunt Serina lovin'


Papa, doin' the Caroline burp routine!

more Caroline burping... yes this happened a lot!

Tobin, playing with the "sword bubbles"


Nonny's Garden... Cold, but the Daffodils were in bloom!




Caroline has had Colic so much lately, and we discovered the "Colic Hold" out of a book of home remedies. Here is Aunt Carol doin' the "Colic Hold"


Yes, even uncle Nathan got a turn to do the Colic Hold. I think the clock behind him says Midnight.


One day, we went to the Church for a work day. While everyone was working hard, I took the kids outside to play. I would not survive without my sling- Caroline loves it!





Nonny bought Tobin a foam sword after the work day for being such a good boy. He fell asleep with it in the car. So cute!
Caroline, finally sleeping in the vibrating baby seat. Thanks Aunt carol for her first baby doll, too!

Doesn't she look comfy?

Tobin and his slinky!

Yes, this was not staged- we were really all trying to make her happy!



After church Sunday, we went as a family out to eat before heading to Arkansas. We ate at one of my favorite places- Red Robin. Yum!








We had a wonderful time in Arkansas, but it was great to be back home. The kids were definitely ready to get home! We miss you all so much!

Hey girl! Love all the pics. Caroline is growing so much! Precious!!! We have found that Gripe Water works great during Cash's fussy colic times. He isn't fussy too often, but when he is, good golly miss molly!! :) Hope y'all are doing well!!!
