North Carolina Visit

A couple of weeks ago, we were blessed to be able to make a trip down to North Carolina to visit family. JJ was able to meet his pretty cousin Lilly, born just days earlier...
JJ was also able to meet his great grandparents, who live in Florida, for the first time. They immediately bonded and had such a good time together...
Of course, JJ spent some quality time with Dixie, the family dog. :)
A "cousins picture"...realizing how difficult it is to get everyone to look at the camera for these shots...
Grams loving on JJ...
Cute pic of a growing boy during his bath...
JJ loved cousin Amanda...
Playing with cousin Leah was a highlight of JJ's trip, too...
We were also able to spend some time visiting JJ's abuelitos...
And being pampered by tia Natalia...
JJ already started getting into "trouble," ripping one of the leaves off of Abuelita's violets :)

We visited Abuelitos' new church, where Josh was able to preach on Sunday morning...
And right before heading back to Kentucky, we stopped by Abuelito's place of work, The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association...
We always leave NC, feeling so humbled and blessed by God with such a loving and generous family. We love you all and hope to see you all soon. JJ misses you all already! Come visit us now!

We will leave you all with a short video of JJ's first ride on a 4-wheeler with daddy...thanks to uncle Vinnie and cousin Patrick. :)

Holy Redneck dude! I like the sleeveless shirt and the short shorts. I'm surprised you didn't give JJ his first dip on that 4 wheeler ride.
