Family Fun

May 12, 2006, we took Will across state lines to visit his extended family in Mississippi. It was his first trip outside the city limits of Birmingham. We put him in his car seat here in Crestwood and he fell asleep. He didn't wake up until we were driving down my parents' driveway in Pontotoc, Miss.

Will met lots of folks he'd never seen before but who already were in love with him.

My grandmother, Mary Frances Jackson, gets to meet Will for the first time. I have to say I've waited all my life for this moment. To present our son to my grandmother was a joyous occasion.

My niece Carson, far left, says hi to Will for the first time. She missed a couple of other opportunities to meet him and almost missed this one. She got back from Disney World the day after we got to Pontotoc. Next to Carson is my youngest sister Rebecca and my sister Beth.

Uncle Joey Rogers meets Will for the first time.

Jody Thompson and her daughter Laura came over for a visit while we were in Pontotoc.
