Our Vacation begins.....

All of us waiting for the train!
We left around noon on Friday and arrived pretty late at Miracle and Dave's house that night. The kids were amazing in the car both ways which was a surprise to me! They are the couple that used to live here in Indiana but moved away 2 years ago to Atlanta. We miss them dearly!!We had originally planned this vacation in August but for one reason or another it kept getting pushed back and ended up in October! (Prices in Florida go way down in Oct too which was nice!) The really neat thing is that Miracle was due in the beginning of October so because we moved the dates we were able to see her precious little baby boy who born just a week before we got there!!

Dax couldn't wait for the train to come!!
On Saturday, we decided on a whim that it would be fun to go on the subway and take the kids to Centennial park. The kids had so much fun riding the "train". The only thing weird is that it was abnormally cold and windy for Atlanta at that time! We braved through it and had fun anyway!

The kids did a great job of listening or it could have been pretty crazy getting on and off the subway with 4 adults and 8 kids!!

All the kiddos the day we left!! It was pretty windy that day! :) (Notice Dax's hair)
Grace and Mikaela are a month apart
Dax and Faith are two months apart
Hayden and Eli are 3 weeks apart
Miracle and I with our youngest!!
Miracle has one more sweet baby in heaven who would have been a year too just like Asher! I can't wait to meet him/her in heaven!!! Baby Daniel was only a week old in this picture and all bundled up... because it was cold!! It was so good to spend time with some of our best friends! The kids loved it and we can't wait to see them again!

How fun! That is cool that you got to go see them...and (like we had talked about the last time we went camping together) it is so fun that the kids are close in age!!

It is crazy how tall Gracie is!!

I agree, we DEFINITELY need to go camping together this summer...maybe at one of the state parks in norther(ish) Indiana so it would be about half way for both of us...

What a great start to your vacation! That is really neat how your children are spread out like that.
