This weekend we flew home to Atlanta because we had our court date in Greenville, South Carolina yesterday, March 5, 2012. I know, I know, we didn't tell anyone that we were in town because we just didn't have the time to see everyone we love. Please don't hold it against us, we just didn't want it to be a stressful weekend trying to be here and there and everywhere. Instead we spent Saturday with family, doing a little shopping, eating, playing and just being us.
Here are many of the highlights of the weekend..... (beware of photo overload)
Madelyn's first airplane trip. She was awesome on all four planes! Tip of the day: if you fly later in the evening, the plane isn't full and they will let you carry on your car seat. Which ended up being such a treat so late at night.
Sunday after church we headed straight to SC to stay with Devon's family. Devon is our birth mother and I'm so glad that we can be more opened about who she is now that things are final because she is worth writing about a lot. We feel so comfortable in their home and we can honestly say, they are our family. We love them and they love us, even when Cony sets off the house alarm at 6:00 in the morning. Devon has a 2 1/2 year old son who is pretty much the sweetest boy I've ever known. He really took to loving on Maddie and building towers made of shaving cream and soap for her to knock over. When he woke up (from the house alarm) he was holding a picture of Maddie and Gracie, which just warmed my heart in a way I can't put into words. He couldn't go to sleep without a picture of Maddie and in my book he won the best brother ever award.
