This past Tuesday Matt and I headed Southbound 35 to Austin.

{I took a bunch of picture of Pearson in this suitcase and of course my favorite one is the low quality iPhone picture.  Figures, huh?}
This was Pearson's first road trip that was longer than our drive to Grammy & Grandaddy's.

Matt had a work conference, so me and Pearson tagged along. 

We all stayed with my good college friends, The Rocks, who live right outside of Austin!!

While Matt was at his conference on Wednesday and Thursday Gina, her sweet little 11 months old Sawyer, Pearson and I hung out.  I had such a good time catching up with Gina.  
I sure do wish we lived closer so our little boys could be buddies and we could deal shop together!!
Sadly our little trip ended with Matt getting sick in the middle of the night.  Thankfully we were already home and he didn't get sick at their house.  Unfortunately,  I found out this morning that Ian and Gina had gotten sick too.  I sure hate that they all got sick, but I'm so glad that me and Pearson didn't catch the bug.

I quarantined Matt to the bedroom and me and Pearson spent most of the day out of the house.  
Pearson was so good for me today, but at the end of the day, it sure did make me super thankful that I have some help in the evenings.  I can't imagine raising Pearson on my own.
I'm so thankful to be raising this sweet boy with Matt and I am so glad that he is finally feeling better this evening.

Thanks Ian & Gina for letting us stay with you guys.  Sorry it ended with almost everyone getting the stomach bug.

Love the suitcase pics and those froggy pjs are adorable! The way his face looks in that little bathtub pic looks so much like Matt. And I'm also very glad to have an awesome hubby to help raise baby girl. I've often thought about how tough it would be to be a single mom and how thankful I am to have someone.

I often wonder why you're so concerned about the quality of your pics. Its like you always have to make it a point to let people know it's an iPhone pic. It's really not a big deal.
