Brenna's First Roadtrip

This past weekend we discovered that Brenna is a great traveler! We are sooo thankful for this, since we love to travel so much. Here's a rundown of our trip - complete with pictures for most of the journey!

We left Saturday morning about 10:30. We stopped in Concord to see my Aunt Pat, Uncle Glenn, and Cousin Sissy. Pat is the one who made all of Brenna's crib bedding and nursery decorations, so we were so excited for Brenna to meet her. She loved meeting new family members! Unfortunately Pat was at work, so we didn't get to take any pictures - maybe next time!

Then we headed on down the road to Greenville, where we were going to stay. We checked into our hotel and hung out for a little while, and then headed over to Kelley's parents' house, where she was staying with the kiddos since Jonathan was out of town. We spent the evening hanging out, catching up with Kelley, Kiran, and Sienna, meeting Rhys and Owen, and trying to help her out during the chaos that is bedtime with 4 kids!

Kelley with Owen and Rhys and me with Brenna - hard to believe 5 years ago we were living in the middle of nowhere with no kiddos and enjoying carefree nights of CFA and the occasional DDR!
On Sunday morning we headed to Atlanta to catch an afternoon Braves game. Brenna was decked out in her too-big Braves onesie and her brand new sun hat! She slept for about the first 5 innings, then ate, then just enjoyed the rest of the game on Daddy's lap. Oh, and the Braves won - by a base hit in the bottom of the 9th with 2 outs! Is Heyward the lucky charm for Atlanta....or is Brenna?

Daddy loves carrying me!

She wasn't too impressed by all the excitement! She even slept through her first Tamahawk Chop!

After the game we headed back to Greenville to stay one more night. We were able to spend a little more time with Kelley on Monday before we left - and our visit even overlapped with my new bloggity friend Erin and her family's trip to Greenville as well!

We headed home around lunchtime and took I-26, which was new to us, to Bristol to pick up Maggie from my mom before heading back to Christiansburg. We had great fun, and Jonathan was such a trooper since a lot of the time he only had the company of women and babies! I guess getting to see the Braves, eat at Sonny's Barbeque, and go to Guitar Center made it worth it! :) I already can't wait for our next road trip!!
