funny face

first night away, wedding, and steps?

steve and i took a road trip with some friends this weekend to upstate ny for a friend's wedding.  aaron mercer (one of steve's hs friends) married kristin greeno so we loaded up the minivan for our trek to ny with carlos and his girlfriend, nathalie, and dave who had a whirlwind trip from dc to boston to ny and back.  maddie and felix stayed with grandma and grandpa at the lake and had a great time.  this was my first night away from maddie and while i enjoyed the break, it was great to see her smiling face when we walked in the door last night.

here are a few pics from our trip and a video of maddie's progression toward walking...oh and a few of us trying to incorporate maddie's texan roots into her attire.  enjoy!
