Weekend in Mississippi

I've had so many posts already planned for this week that I haven't even had the chance to blog about our trip to Mississippi this past weekend!
 
Many of you that know us and/or read here know that Noah's brothers both live about 12 hours away, so we don't get to see them very often.  My sister in law had planned a trip to Mississippi this past week with our niece, so we took advantage of it!  
 
There was lots of picture taking...
 
 
 ...that two little girls didn't seem to agree with. Getting a 1 year old and a 2 year old to sit still for a picture is no easy task.
 
But, those pictures above are super special because they are the same 2 cousins, on the same front porch swing, from this time a year ago.
Be still, my heart.
There was also lots of playing!  It was basically one big play date.  These girls love their Nana and Supe's house - it's just 1 big toy store! :)
And there were also goats. YES, goats. :) My in-laws' neighbors took in a baby goat for a few weeks, and the girls got a chance to play with it.  My niece, Avery, was OBSESSED - she freaked every time she could see it from the window.
It was kind of funny to see it just hanging out with the girls!  It was a very sweet animal - I promise we knew it wasn't going to attack our children. :)
 
 
This girl had an absolute blast seeing her cousin.  She was on the go all weekend!
 
 
It was a fun weekend for all of us!
