Stefanie, Holden and Jessica visit us in South Carolina

We had a wonderful time with Stefanie, Holden and Jessica when they visited us in South Carolina the second week of March 2006.  We had fun at Build-A-Bear and Broadway at the Beach, went to Dolly Parton's Dixie Stampede, spent a sunny day on the beach and a great day touring Charleston (including carriage ride).  Oh...we also held a small (50 people) gathering with our friends.  We surprised them with the news that our little "Bean" is a girl, Carrigan.  Our friends gave little thank you gifts to Stefanie for her huge part in helping us create our family.  Holden and Jessica also raked in fun stuff.  A great weekend!

This is the ONLY way Stefanie can be covered by BlueCross and BlueShield...for the baby process we cover her with a policy from Lloyd's of London
"Act like you like each other" says Jeff. It worked.

Great day for the beach
Even Kitty got a new outfit from Build A Bear. She is such a drama queen...look at that pose.
