Just Because

Right now I'm on a business trip and missing my little sweetie cakes!  Here is a recent picture of her from vacation bible school and just because seeing a picture of Emma Claire should brighten everyone's day!
Love to all and we hope everyone has a GREAT week!  See, I am trying to do better about posting! Ha

Well, I have realized I've been a bad blogger and not staying up to date with our life happenings.  We have been so busy it's been crazy but I think life is starting to slow down a bit for the Warren Family which I'm happy to type finally!

I'll start back with Memorial Day, we had a pretty low key weekend which was nice.  That Friday Emma Claire and I headed down to Murfreesboro to watch Calee in her dance recital.  Emma Claire loved it, she danced and sang in her best voice along with all of the girls on stage.

That Saturday, we had a photo shoot with one of our primary nurses from the NICU.  The St. Thomas Foundation choose us to do a caregiver/patient connection story on.  When it has been released, I'll share on the blog.  I cannot wait to see the finished product of the story and pictures.  After the photo shoot, Mom and I went to Green Hills for some shopping and then a little lunch at one of our favorite spots, The Picnic!

Sunday was church and then off to Mom and Dad's house for a cookout.  All in all, it was a great time to just kick back and relax which is what we all needed since Mom, Emma Claire and I were heading to Seattle on Wednesday after the holiday weekend.

On Wednesday, we left for Seattle.  I was hoping Emma Claire would be perfect on the flight since it was a 4 1/2 hour non stop from Nashville to Seattle.  She was an angel.  She slept, ate and played the entire flight.  It was so nice to not have to deal with a wild child on a flight so long.  EC is definitely turning into a little world traveler.  
On Thursday, we had a surprise shower for one of my co-worker/friends while I was working out of Seattle Office.  Most of the staff in Seattle was able to make the shower, and we had a blast.  We cannot wait to meet baby Ember (which hopefully sooner than later as Alecia is now only a few days from her due date)

While I was working Mom and Emma Claire just walked around downtown Seattle and then we would go to dinner at night.  The weather was wonderful and it was so nice to just relax in the evenings after work.  

Since we were in Seattle, we had to meet Todd's sister Christie for dinner.  We had a wonderful time and it was so good to get caught up with everyone.
 Happy Birthday Nana!  I love you so much and appreciate everything you do for me and my mommy and daddy.  So glad you could come to Seattle with me and my mommy.  ~ Love Emma Claire

On Saturday (which was also Mom's birthday), we meet Todd on Bainbridge Island for the Farmer's Market and enjoyed some shopping as well.  Mom and I were exhausted after all of the walking on Saturday, so it was nice to take the ferry back to Seattle so we could rest.

Saturday night we stayed at a hotel right by the airport since we had a morning flight back to Nashville.  It was a wonderful trip with a little work and a little play time as well.  
Welcome back home to Nashville!
