West Virginia...Mountain Mama

Riley and Ryleigh

Although we would not recommend driving 12 hours with three kids to the general population, our kiddos really came through for us and were absolute sweethearts in the car. We stopped on the way up and visited my cousin Lisa and her family in Chattanooga. Then, on to West Virginia where we really enjoyed Brice's family reunion: meeting family, horseback rides, archery, the works! We even found out that one of Brice's cousins has a moniker that sounded very familiar. Once the two little girls got over the initial shock of realizing that they were not unique in the world, Riley Young and Ryleigh Young really enjoyed meeting each other!

Memphis Trip

Please appreciate the extreme difficutly it took to get this picture. Left to right: Lucie, Nadine, Riley, Porter, Lizzie, Poppy, 2nd row: Joey, Brice, me, mom, Katie.

Hard to believe we just celebrated nine years.

Po preparing to scare the ducks.

Riley participating, Deenie meditating and Lizzie.....

Lizzie, about to take a walk apparently.
My incredibly photographically gifted sister in law Katie took all these while we were having our annual "post general assembly" gathering in Memphis.
