Baby Claire

This last Sunday we had the opportunity to attend our friends daughter's baby blessing, baby Claire. We sure love baby Claire and are so glad she has joined us. We also love her family so much and could not help but get some darling pictures of all of them.

Cherry Blossom Festival

We arrived back in Virginia in time for the Cherry Blossom Festival.The trees were gorgeous this year. We even got to enjoy the parade with the Hawks. We don't have a lot of pictures of the trees or the parade, but we have some of one of our favorite girls, Carolyn.

Go Cougars! Go Virginia!

It's been a while since I posted last, sorry. We've had a lot of things going on lately, plus I lost motivation to blog there for a while. We're now back in Virginia, but I'll try to catch you up on our last little bit in Texas.

We enjoyed watching the cougars play basketball this year. We didn't get all of the games in our hotel room so we had to venture out to find places that were showing the game. Our favorite was this amazing Irish Pub, Lion and the Rose

We took a differnt way route back to Virginia than tthe way we came out. We decided to head to New Orleans to see Peter's cousin Tory and his family. We of course had to stop at Cafe Du Monde and Bourbon street in downtown New Orleans. It was really cool to see the city in person and not just in the movies. Then we drove through the rest of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee, and home to Virginia.
It's so good to be back. We are enjoying being in one place, and with family and friends. Peter is busy in the hospital doing family medicine this rotation and I just took a job as a child protective services worker.
