Meeting Kristin and Trip Photos

Over the last 2 years, I have had the privilege of getting to know Kristin at Fill My Cup via the blogosphere. I knew she lives in North Carolina, so when we determined we would be driving through NC on our way to Washington DC, I dropped her an email to see if we could meet. We did! Kristin is the first blog friend I have gotten to meet in person, and Kristin, wouldn't you say we hit it off royally? I just wish we'd had more time. Here is a photo of us together.



Our trip has been great so far. Here are a few pictures to speak a few thousand words, just because I am too tired to try to write anything interesting right now.

First hotel night in Greensboro, NC. McDonald's in bed at 10 p.m. Special treat for all of us!

The beautiful 48 car at the Hendrick Motorsport Racing Complex.

Surprise treat--watching the Sprint Cup cars doing testing at Lowes Motor Speedway.

The kiddos meet Washington DC!

My MIL flew in this morning and met us in DC.
First acquaintance with the harsh reality of war.

Lots and lots of walking today.

Those are such beautiful family photos! Looks and sounds like a fantastic trip with memories to keep forever for everyone.

I love the coloring of your blog and the little feet in the header. I love baby feet and kissed my baby's foot this morning to wake her even though she turns 17 in a few days...she will always be my baby.

Hi Emily,

I was just curious if you have received any of the emails I sent you. I would like to send you Lil' Miracles' real birth announcement, but want to make sure the email is going to you first.

Thanks,
Christine
