Atlanta Visit

Here is our main purpose for the trip to Altanta...to meet Sofia's new baby sister Jaquelyn. McKinley was all too happy to hold her while Lila helped Nathan get our dinner on the table. Jaquelyn is five weeks old and sleeps a lot. She even went to her first Braves game with us on Sunday! Without a job, I was able to get her quilt made and delivered in record time.

We had an overcast day at the Zoo but it was nice since it wasn't too hot. Here is Go Postal and Sofia joining the rest of the group after looking for "monos" (monkeys). Marshall is feeding a parakeet in a new exhibit where you walk into a huge cage of parakeets flying freely about. I am not sure what this next bird is...but anything that likes to eat mice is ok by me. And my favorite shot of the day is of this old man. He looked like he was having as much fun people watching as we were looking back at him.

Is that a cormorant eating a mouse? EWWWWWWW!

Looks like Aunt McKinley is bonded with Baby Jaquelyn already!

Look at all that hair on that sweet little girl. Looks like you all had a fun time.
How is the job hunt going?

We have a BLAST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wish you were here again. Sofia is still saying "Marshall" about 100 times a day and "Leeeaaaanne" about 50 times a day. You all made a big impression.

Sweet baby girl! And just look at Sofia and how much she has grown. She is beautiful. Go Postal looks like a natural at the dad thing.
