Schragerpalooza 2011 – The Final Chapter… For Now

Schragerpalooza 2011 wasn’t over just yet.  One of the traditions we have anytime Aunt Laurie makes the long trek down from the mountains is breakfast at the Ballantyne Hotel. (It’s so rare that she’s able to partake in “city food” as she calls it, that we like to expose her to as much of it as we can before she disappears back into the wild.)

It was great to see everyone and the girls had a great time.  They can’t wait to destroy the Cape though… you’ve been warned.

Enjoy some more photos of the Schrager girls from their epic weekend together.

Becca Visits Her New Cousin

Not the best composed photo, but I love Becca’s reaction to Bailey’s kisses and the girls piling onto Aunt Laurie’s lap…

Schragerpalooza 2011 and Karrs Too – Part II

With so many Schragers in Charlotte, the city was on high alert.  It was such a rare occurrence that Aunt Laurie emerged from the mountains after hearing of the news via carrier pigeon.

Charlotte will not see such an important gathering until the Democratic National Convention rolls into town later this year.  (Although I tend to believe that the DNC will produce a lot less in the way of solid waste I would gather.)

The Schragers Take Charlotte

We had a big weekend at the Schrager Estate last weekend when Uncle Adam, Aunt Carly and Cousin Diana came to visit from Virginia.   If that wasn’t enough,  Aunt Laurie emerged from the mountains to see her shadow, which as we all know, means 6 more weeks of Spring.

Laney and Diana had a great time together.  Nothing (and no one) was seriously damaged and Bailey was surprisingly only mildly annoying.  Everyone enjoyed “Good Night Moon” the musical until that stupid, scary moon started talking at the end.  Now I have to beat up the moon or look like a bad father to my daughter.

All in all, it was a great weekend and Laney can’t wait to have her bath buddy back for another swim.
