Spring Break

I'm on spring break this week! Woo-hoo! Most people go to some luxurious, far away destination with sunny skies and warm breezes. I went a little north of there...ALABAMA.

Some of very best friends, Derrick and Chrissy moved there a year ago this summer. Derrick accepted a children's pastor position at Metro Church of God. Chrissy is living her dream being a stay at home mom.

She recently became a mom for the second time when she had little Christopher Hudson about 2 weeks ago. They already have a 1 1/2 year old, Ella Grace.

I haven't seen them since Christmas time when they came to visit, so since I had some time this week, I planned a little trip to the great state of Alabama.

If you've ever driven from Atlanta to Birmingham, you know what an awful drive it is. Boring and bumpy! So, in an attempt to make the time pass by a little more efficiently, I thought I'd let you in on my journey:

Got my shades...

...the cruise control set... ipod...

...and the open road ahead of me! Thankfully, it was a beautiful day!

One of the highlights of the trip was the Talladega Speedway! I know all you NASCAR fans are super jealous of me! they're not the greatest pictures, but have you ever tried to focus, zoom, steady all while trying to drive?!

Finally made it! Here's some shots of the kids:

There weren't many shots of Hudson because really, all he did was sleep and eat. He is such a good baby!

Me and Ella

One day, we took the kids on a walk. Hudson didn't make it. As you can tell, he had other plans.

While I was there, I also got to catch up with an old college friend, Jaime.

It was a great trip! I miss Chrissy and Derrick. I used to see them practically everyday. When they lived here, they were literally 5 minutes away. Right around the corner! I guess I was a little spoiled! Thanks for letting me spend some time with you, Skeltons! I love and miss you very much!

The ride home...not so great! Here was my view for a good part of the trip:

They had highway 20 down to one lane. Ugh...

Haven't they been working on those exact roads for about 5 years?!?! Yuck to the ride home, but at least you had fun while you were there.

Looks like you had a great a fun trip. I agree that drive to Alabama is aweful. We are making that same drive this weekend.

Ella and Hudson LOOK just like Chrissy & Derrick! Freaky.

So glad you had fun! I do NOT miss that drive.

Sounds like a fun week...I haven't seen Chrissy since college. Her kids are so cute!!!

That drive has been under construction since I was two! I'm serious!
Cute baby pics! I can't believe you missed the international tour of supermarkets, though! What a shame!
