Grandparent Greatness!

It has been too long since I've had a chance to update my family & followers the adventures in the Barlow household.  We have been out of town, busy with work & church, & adjusting to more change...a new sitter for Peyton.  The days have seemed nonstop, but filled with joy & happiness. 
We have had two wonderful trips to see Grandparents.  I am amazed at the love Peyton brings out in Papa Rusty, Nana, Grandaddy, & Grandmama. My heart fills with joy as I see Peyton's grandparents love on him & spoil him!
  Our first trip was the Destin, FL to spend the weekend with the Barlows... a much needed weekend for Jonathan.  Our trip was cut short with a funeral on Friday & Monday, but we loved every minute we had on the beach, eating seafood, going shopping, etc.  I have become a beach snob - loving Destin!!! I love the white sand, blue water, TopSol's (spell?) work-out facility, the restaurants, the outlets, & the best children's consignment store!
Peyton & Nana after bath time - adorable!

Heaven on Earth: My family & the beach! 
Peyton loved the beach so much...he slept!
Our second trip - our first flight to KY to celebrate Carter's April arrival.  Peyton loved the plane so much that he slept through both flights!  Again, a wonderful weekend seeing friends & family.  My mother outdid herself with my favorite foods & I was able to celebrate Barrett McCann's arrival with my college roommate, Codye! It was such a special moment.  I look forward to meeting Carter the next time we visit KY!!!

Baby Carter's Shower: The Hostess & Proud Mama!
As wonderful as the past two weekends have been, I am excited to spend this weekend in Royston! We are going to get to visit with friends, play outside (in the 70 degree weather), clean house, & grocery shop.  I know I'm becoming my mother when I get excited about cleaning our bathrooms & planning our meals!
Thank you Papa Rusty, Nana, Grandaddy, & Grandmama for making the past two weekends extra-special.  You truly are a blessing to Peyton.  Thank you for loving him!!! We love y'all!
