Fun in Huntington

Mom, Aidan, and I went to Huntington for Marshalls homecoming. We stayed with Sheri, Lauren, and Jeff the first night and then in a hotel the other 2 nights. Mom was so generous to babysit Aidan at the hotel while I got a chance to catch up with friends! The weather was BAD - rainy and cold and the Herd LOST ( I can not believe they lost their homecoming game! Where are the national champions?) but I got to spend time with some of my favorite people, laughed A LOT!, ate a lot of GREAT food and had a great time. Aidan and I watched the homecoming parade from underneath the awning of our hotel as it poured down buckets. I went to tailgate for about 30 minutes before I wussed out ( this California girl can not deal with cold weather any longer!) and then we totally didnt even attempt to go to the game ( like I said- buckets). I hated that we missed the homecoming festivities, but like I said we had a great time anyway.

The first day we got to Huntington it was semi warm so my friend Sheri took some shots of Aidan at Ritter Park ( a beautiful park and one of my favorite spots in Huntington). We took over 100 pictures and these are just a few of my favs.
The first night we stayed with Sheri. Aidan looved crawling through Laurens tunnel.
and riding in her red convertible mustang- Sassy!!

and her rocking truck! Lauren was little miss mommy to Aidan all weekend. Too cute.

Aidan says.... GO HERD!

Decked out for the parade.

One of my favorite pics of the weekend. Doesnt the bridge and trees look like a back drop? Like I said- Beautiful Park!

Fun in the mountains

Aidan and I came to visit my mom last week. We enjoyed a fun girls weekend in the Smoky Mountains with my two aunts and cousin. The leaves were beautiful! We had a cottage right on the stream and it was a perfect location! We are off tomorrow to drive to West Virginia to visit friends and attend Marshalls homecoming. Yeah! GO HERD!! Aidan when we first arrived sitting in a rocking chair on our porch that was actually over the stream.
Mr. A's first ride in the "Big Truck". Thanks Sabrina for driving all weekend!

Aidan dancing on the back of the tailgate of the "Big Truck"! Every boy loves trucks! Right?

Aidan in his hat from Andrew that was handmade in Peru!

I LOOOOVE Autumn on the east coast!!!

Stampede!!!! We had dinner at the Dixie Stampede. They had a live show with horses and other animals while you ate. The food was o.k. but the show was GREAT!

Aidan posing with one of the Stampede girls and her horse. She actually made him blush!

We went in the woods and took some family pics on a bridge.

My favorite pic of the day! Nana and her baby!

Sabrina and me. By this point Aidan was DONE with having his picture taken.

I guess I liked this one so much I decided to post it twice. Oops
