Happy Birthday Mom!

Mom's birthday was yesterday, April 9th. Happy Birthday, Mom!

Isn't she beautiful?!?!

William Curtis Gibson

We had the pleasure of meeting my new cousin, William Curtis Gibson on Saturday. He will be called, Will. He was born on Saturday morning around 4am. He weighed 10lbs 3 oz. He is a very big baby!

Julie is my Dad's youngest sister. This is their second child. Will's older sister, Abby, will be 2 years old in June. I will put up some pictures of them together when I get some.


Andrew and I spent Easter weekend at home in Roanoke. We had a great time hanging out with my family. My dad, brother and Andrew played Settlers more times than I can remember. On Thursday, we helped mom and dad pick out a new car. Mom wanted a bigger car so the whole family could ride together when we all came home. So, she bought a mini van. It is a Kia Sedona. It is really nice with almost every option including a DVD player which we had fun with.

I was a little disappointed that she didn't buy this van though. Who wouldn't want a Bedazzled van? You may need to view it a little larger to really appreciate it. The designs are made out of those little jewels/stones that people put in the bottom of a beta fish bowl. It is truly spectacular!

We spent a little time on Saturday looking around the local shops in downtown Roanoke. We were checking out the local glass and pottery.
Here is the tallest building in Roanoke. It is Wachovia Bank.

After church on Sunday, we went to my grandparents' house and ate lunch. After lunch, my cousin Adam had a little Easter egg hunt in the back yard.


On March 31st, we did a 10K race in Richmond with a bunch of friends from college. Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures from the race because I didn't really want to carry a camera around while I was trying to set world records. I think you can understand. But, I do have some pictures of our time hanging out during the rest of the weekend.

Jenny did a great job of finding a place for all of us to stay. She found this camp site. This is the main cabin where we hung out together with a fire, smores, Settlers of Catan and lots of food.

These are the cabins that we slept in. There were about 5 or 6 of these cabins. They each slept 4 people in bunk beds. They are nice and cute during the day. But, when it gets dark, it is a bit "Blair Witch Projecty". But, we all made it out alive.

Even Kathryn Sink roughed it for the weekend. (Although, I am not sure how rough it is to be held and loved every second by all the girls.)

There was a lake nearby with a pretty dam. So, Jenny took our picture for us. Thanks Jenny!

We had quite the adventure at Applebee's our last night there. It took over an hour for us to get our food. Even Kathryn was getting pretty hungry!

Right before we all left, we took a bunch of pictures with our camera. They are fun to look through. So, here is a link to a photo webpage so you can view them. Just click on the first picture and then keep clicking the next button. (It might just be amusing to those of us that were there.)
