A Safari... In Georgia, Totally Amazing!

I have been talking about doing this safari for a few months now, and I (I'm sorry Binky) promised my sister I wouldn't do a certain thing without her and I completed forgot and did it. So she made me promise again that I wouldn't do this without her, she may or may not have threatened me. Unfortunately John wasn't able to come, I don't think I've done anything like this without him, but someone has to work!

Our first stop, However, was Orlando where I got to see Daddy and Aunty Sally.  Aunty Sally has the sweetest heart and cutest laugh, I miss spending time with her, and was so happy for her to meet Amalia and get to know the boys better.  (Thanks for giving my kids unlimited amounts of ice cream and cookies!)

It was also great to see all the rest of my family again, especially you Kevin, you are just …
