Road Trip to Ft. Smith!

This past weekend, we took Cameron on her first major road trip (that wasn't to Grammy & Paw-Paw's house).  We went to Ft. Smith, Arkansas to meet Allison, Josh, and a Genevieve!  Allison is one of the first BLMs I connected with and we talked about meeting back when Cameron and Genevieve were just the rainbow babies we dreamed of someday having.  For this trip to finally happen was fantastic! 

This was Cameron's first trip out of state (except for the trip to Texas when she was still hanging out in mommy's belly) and her first stay at a hotel!  She did very well!

Now...let the photo bomb begin!

Cameron chilling in the hotel bed...she's impressed...can't you tell?

From L to R:  Adam, Me, Cameron, Allison, Genevieve, and Josh
A HUGE thanks to the stranger at breakfast who took pictures for us!

At the Arkansas Welcome Center

Adam was sweet enough to drive BACK into Arkansas once we got to I-40.  I was disappointed that we couldn't get a picture at the state line Arkansas sign as we were leaving Ft. Smith, because of it's location.  So, when Adam saw a billboard listing the Welcome Center as 8.1 miles east on I-40, he took us back into Arkansas so we could get a picture with a sign...all for documentation of Cameron's out-of-state trip!  He's so sweet!

I am so glad we were able to take this trip, and that we were finally able to meet Allison and her wonderful family!  We hope to be able to do this maybe once a year and watch these sweet rainbow babies grow up together!

I absolutely loved reading this post. I'm so glad you guys were able to meet up! As I told Allison, I hope it was the first of many visits together. Love it! :)

We had such a good time meeting you guys last weekend. Cameron is a cutie. I am so glad I got to cuddle with her on Sunday morning. What a sweetheart! Next spring or summer at the pool sounds like a great idea. :-) Love these rainbows!
