This past weekend, the kids and I made a quick, albeit fun, trip to Richmond.

The occasion?  Katie’s bridal shower!  Poor photo quality aside, I love this picture of the four of us. I tried to find a comparison shot from high school, but I couldn’t find a single blog-worthy, non-incriminating picture.  You’re welcome, ladies.  Seriously though, I have not been this stoked for a wedding in a long time.

And of course, we had to fit in some cousin time.  Check out the look of pure joy on Carson’s face.

They love each other so much.  It kind of kills me that the cousins have to live so far away.

Maggie!  She’s getting so big!

And Mary Grace… who surprisingly appears quite serene in this photo.  Don’t let it fool you.  Let’s just say she left her mark on Midlothian this weekend…
