Ready, Set, Smile!

Here are a TON of pictures from our trip out to DC. We had a blast visiting with our amazing family! Enjoy!

Our drive went surprisingly well. Praise God for DVD players and Elmo.

Aren't my boys getting big? Sniff, sniff.

Our trip included a little of this...

And some of this...
But mostly included lots of this... family, food, and a whole lotta' fun (I'm corky, I know)!
Megan got to meet her nephew for the first time!
And Uncle Joel and Uncle Joel too. Jace thought these two were a pair and kept calling Troy, Joel. We would point to Joel and ask "who's that?" And Jace would reply "Joel!" And then point to Troy and ask "Now, who's that?" And he would reply "Joel!" Sorry Troy, for now, you are just going to have to be called Joel.
Ben and Lauren are expecting their first baby in August--Morgan Marie. We planned the trip to celebrate Morgan by throwing Lauren a baby shower.
I loved spending time with both my family and Greg's while we were out there!
Tonagel men.
Lauren and Ben enjoying the anticipation of having a baby of their own, and in the meantime, loving on mine!
Jace is terrified of dogs (but also infatuated with them) so we wanted to get Will acquainted with them early so he doesn't follow in his big brother's footsteps.
Auntie Lolo and Brother (as he is often called).
Grandma loves her grandbaby!
We celebrated my sister turning 30 at the end of the month at a crazy busy, crazy good Mexican restaurant called Cactus Cantina just walking distance from my sister's apartment.
Waiting for our table--party of 11 plus a baby!
Jace loves his Aunt JJ (Not really sure when he started calling her this but it really stuck)!

Megan and Malorie came early to visit and help with last minute preparations--thanks girls!!
The beautiful and delicious cake. It was called Susie's Pink Lady and it included three layers of vanilla butter cake with raspberry buttercream and fresh raspberries. YUM!

The shower favors--milk chocolate bars with a label that read "Oh Baby Oh Baby Oh Baby, Lauren Jolly is having a Baby!" They were so cute and so delicious!
A poem from Jill, Mom, and me. And the "Bottles and Booties Advice Book" full of open ended questions for her friends to sign.
The food display--so pretty right? It tasted even better than it looked!
The mommy-to-be being showered with gifts! I love all the pink!
3 generations of Jamieson girls!
Aunt Megan loving on Will!
Aunt Malorie's turn!
Time to say goodbye... no fun!
We loved seeing everyone and always look forward to our next family gathering. Love you ALL!

In other news, we close on our house on Friday! We are so excited to finally get this ball rolling!

Phew. I'm done! Bye friends!

Your trip looks like so much fun! Family is the best. I can't wait to see pictures of your new house.

I second what JJ said- I love everything about it! And everything about that weekend, could it have been any better? My fav may have been that mexican restaurant, or walking by the water in Oldtowne, or playing with Jace and Will, or the food at the shower... hard to decide!!!! When can we do this again is the question?
