Part 1 Going to Beaufort for Baby Jude's Baptisim. March 21, 2009

We have had another crazy weekend and this time I mean crazy. Friday night we went to the Disney live show to celebrate my third birthday. Then my mom, Adam and I woke up really earlier on Saturday morning so we could leave for our short trip to South Carolina. I mean short trip because we are leaving Saturday and coming home on Sunday since mom and dad have to be at work on Monday. Did I mention why we are taking such a crazy short trip? Oh, we are going to see my cousin Jude for the first time and to celebrate his Christening. And of course we will see Uncle Greg, Aunt Andrea, Grandma Denise and Grandpa Bob.

Well, Plans did go according to plan because daddy arrived home a little late from his shift. He was really tired too because he ran calls all night. Thank goodness the drive is not that long. Well 5 hours may be a little long for Adam considering this is his first real rode trip. We don't need to mention how many rode trips and plane rides I have taken. Adam really has some catching up to do. We finally got on the road around 10am and arrived around 3pm. We only made one stop and that was for lunch. Great timing Dad! Adam and I were very good during the trip, we just hung out and read books, slept and watched our DVD's. Once we arrived the real adventure began. Enjoy the photos.
Daddy and I taking everything in!

Holding my cousin Jude for the first time!

My dad is having fun making Jude laugh. It is weird hearing mommy call daddy Uncle Chad!

This is the first time Grandma and Grandpa held all three of their grandchildren at the same time. This was a very special moment for them.

All the cousins together.

Tonight is the Beaufort Twilight Run and Oyster Roast. Grandpa Bob, Uncle Greg, Aunt Andrew and Adams God Father Kevin are going to run in it. This photo is just a preview of me getting grandpa ready for the big race.

The gang ready to run!

Grandma Denise, daddy, and I are cheering everyone on. Adam came along but he is hiding behind grandma in the stroller.

On your mark... get set.... GO!

Uncle Greg takes the lead!

He is also the first one to finish.

Then comes Kevin!

Grandpa is giving it all he has! Great job! After the race we had a bite to eat, enjoyed some music and then headed to the Marine Base to sleep. Mom, dad and I did not get much sleep because I was got sick throughout the night. When the sun came up I was back to my old self so everyone thought it would be ok for me to go to Jude's Christening. If you saw me you would of never known I was sick the night before. All and all, we had a great time. This will be the last time we will visit Beaufort because Uncle Greg is being transferred to Virgina. Good Luck!
Continue on to day two in Beaufort!

Part 2 Going to Beaufort SC for Baby Jude's Christening March 21 & 22 2009

Day two! We left the Marine base and heading back to uncle Greg's and aunt Andrea's for Cousin Jude's Baptism. All dressed up ready to celebrate Jude's big day. Daddy and I are taking a stroll around the neighborhood while we wait for everyone to get ready.

Family photo!

My Godfather Kevin and I enjoying our bonding time. I can't believe Kevin has almost completed his Freshman year at Ohio State. GO BUCKEYES!

We could not come all this way without a fancy picture with Grandma Denise and Grandpa Bob.

Showing off! Yes I am officially walking!

My Godmother Mary drove all the way from Atlanta to join in the celebration. See, Mary and and my second uncle John have taken in many babies over the years. They are called Foster parents, even though I really don't understand what that means. As a matter of fact this little guy has been adopted and is just waiting for the finally paper work to go through. Mom says that Mary and John have a heart of gold and it is unbelievable how many babies they have cared for. One day mom would love to do this!

Grandpa Bob and I are ready to break into the some beer that came all the way from London.

This is the part we have all been waiting for. We all made it to Jude's big Christening. How cool is this place.

More information.

Even more information about the cool place my cousin Jude was Christened at.

Baby Jude and his daddy, Uncle Greg. Mom just wants to eat him up. I think she is crazy... why would she want to eat baby Jude? Mom also thinks that Jude and I have a lot of similarities, considering we are cousins and all. It must be the Leesman side.

The family. Uncle Greg, Aunt Andrea and baby Jesus. Oh, I mean baby Jude. Mom said that those of you who know the story will get a kick out of the baby Jesus comment.

Jude's Parents and God Parents blessing Jude!

The entire gang!

Feeding Adam Cheerios so he will keep quite!

Full of smiles!

On the way in I spotted this really cool thing but I could not play with it because we needed to get to Jude's Baptism. Now that everything is over, I get to check out what I consider an old fashion water fountain. As you can see by the photo I am giving it all I got, in order for the water to come out. I did it on my tip toes and all. This is so much fun!

I forget my friends name but her and I had a blast playing together!

Sarah's 3rd Birthday Friday, March 20, 2009 Disney Live Show

Today is officially my 3rd birthday! Mom bought Disney Live tickets many months ago so I could see this cool show. My good friends Mady and Emily also joined in on the celebration. I was the first one to arrive to the show so mom decided to take a few photo's of me outside of the theater. Check out the reflection in the windows pretty cool. This building is really big and I can't get over how many steps there are.

Maddy had arrived and we decided to check out what is for sale. Our first stop was the Little Einstein booth.

The three musketeers together at last. Thanks Emily for letting me wear your hat.

All ready for the show to start!

1,2 & 3 Drum Roll.....

Waiting patiently for the curtains to open.

Yes, my favorite the Little Einsteins.

Enjoying some ice cream. This is the first time I have had Dip and Dots ice cream, not to bad!

Cheering on Mickey and singing...

M-I-C-K-E-Y- M-O-U-S-E-! The mickey mouse club house come inside.... you get the point.
I had a blast and there are not enough pictures to show all that I saw or what an incredible time I had. I can't wait to go to Disney! Oh, I forgot to mention that this is the only time I can remember doing something with just mommy and me since Adam was born. Hopefully her and I can have some more girl time really soon!

Another Day at the Zoo March 2009

The zoo is one of our favorite places to go! The zoo built a splash ground area last year and we love it. Since the weather is warm enough we decided to meet our friends Maddy and KK at the zoo today.

I love to have my picture taken.

Since I am walking all over the place, I have a new outlook on this zoo stuff. Look, that turtle is bigger than me.

Maddy and I enjoying the day and grateful to be friends.

Like I said before I love to have my picture taken. Don't you think we could be future models? Check out my new swim suit. Thanks Maddy!

I am having the time of my life. As a matter of fact mom could not sit for a minute because I decided to be brave and stand on every creature they have at the splash grounds. Mom about had a heart attach and said "you are just like your father, the dare devil"!

I just love the water! Just checking out the water holes!

Oh my, I did not expect the fountain to get higher and splash me right in the face.

I am trying to run in between the water. This reminded mom of how she used to dribble the soccer ball in between the cones.

It got us! We had a blast and can't wait to go back to the zoo real soon!
