on the road to florida...

on thursday morning we headed out to florida. we planned a stop in mississippi (land that i LOVE) to visit great uncle marvin and aunt ferris. they live on a beautiful farm outside of hattiesburg, complete with a catfish pond, goats, garden and horses. in true hayes\day family style aunt ferris had prepared an amazing meal for our arrival and then it was "side", as vivian likes to say, to enjoy the beautiful weather.

here is the crew checking out the goats...

...and vivian feeding the horse a treat.

and of course, what girl doesn't love handsome, sweet uncle marv? after spending just one night, we were on the road again to the "other" day's. jennifer and tony were super excited to meet the next generation of day cousins....and even more excited to tell us they are adding to the bunch!!

they are expecting their first baby in january! congrats congrats CONGRATS to them! jennifer is a natural, as you can clearly see, vivian instantly fell in love and dubbed her "juju"!

Woo hoo! Welcome back to blogland! I'd like to say something really meaningful but my honest first thought was, what fabulous big hair bows. ;)

Uncle Man, that's what Clif and I (not sure who coined it though) called Uncle Marvin when we were little. I <3 their place, so relaxing.
P.S. Jennifer is glowing!
