Jerry was born in the wonderful land of toys. He made his way through many stores, but found a loving home with the Paris family. They took Jerry in and Rylee adopted this cutie as her own. But, soon he became just one of many toys....not noticed until the July Fireflies decided to make a mascot out of him.
Jerry's previous luxurious accommodations:
Soon Jerry heard of a mascot election. He was sooo excited that he might become famous among the July '08 babies, that he came bounding out of the toy basket.
Rylee's Mommy decided to take a pictured of Jerry to see if he might win the election to take a trip around the world. Here is Jerry posing for the camera.
Now the election has concluded and here he is watching himself on the internet. He's very excited that he was chosen out of some very formidable opponents.
His first photo op with Rylee was when she was getting ready for school. They were playing on the floor....Rylee wasn't interested in taking a good picture.
That evening Jerry decided to take a bath with Rylee.
Rylee couldn't quite figure out why her friend was wrapped in plastic.
As a spur of the moment thing, Jerry decided to help me make a monster pile of monster cookies.
He ate some before they were even cooled!! This is him polishing off his 3rd cookie.
This is Jerry's journey thus far in North Carolina. We will making some local trips to some cool landmarks and post those over the weekend.
Saturday February 7th was a very uneventful day. The family sat around the house and Rylee played on the floor with Jerry:
We finally decided to go grocery shopping. We were planning on taking pictures there, but Mommy got into the 'Zone' and completely forgot. But, afterward Rylee zonked out on Mommy and Daddy's bed. Jerry was trying to wake her up:
In the evening we went to DH's parent's house so we could visit. DH's dad also did some work on our Puter, so it's working much better now!!
This is Jerry watching over Rylee while she was playing in her saucer.
And now, a little video for your entertainment.
YAY!!! Peyton and I went to the Post Office today and guess who was waiting on us?
He brought a really cute bib and letter with him from Riley her Momma & Daddy.
Then I took him out to meet Peyton.
She really liked him. Here she is reaching out to touch him.
And as I am about to shut the car door she has him in her arms!
To be continued. Will update soon with more..
Here is a short video from last night of Peyton and Jerry in her crib.
Well, we made it to WV. We wanted to make a grand entrance to meet Miss Sydney...you know, like the circus, so we hitched a ride on Horton (from Horton Hears a Who):
We think Sydney was as excited to meet us as we were her:
Sydney's mom thought it would be funny if we did a little circus act by balancing on Sydney's head.
We were hungry from all the balancing, so we ate some Cheerios with Sydney:
Then, Sydney's friend, Landon, came over. We had a good time with him too:
We had a good first night at Sydney's house. The next day, we decided to "hang out" on the activity center. That was really fun.
Today, we're headed to a birthday party for Sydney's cousin and papaw. We can't wait to have some cake...
Well, we had a good time at the bday party, but Sydney's mom only got to get a shot of us on the way there...the batteries in her camera went kaput and her brother had none! Can you believe that? So, she'll make up for that tomorrow and next week...
In the car...
I thought I'd help Leigh Anne with her homework since Sydney & Julie were napping (you can see Julie all sprawled ot on the table...sheesh). I had to wear Leigh Anne's glasses...
We heard that Sydney, her mama, & daddy were going shopping so we tried to hitch a ride in Sydney sweater:
Then we got found out:
So Sydney played with us before she left:
We made a new friend, Miss Petunia Pig:
While they were gone, we had fun swinging on the dining room lights:
and when they got back, we wanted to pose w/ all the fun stuff Sydney got from Old Navy:
And this is the bib Sydney got from Peyton. She's wearing it now...

Jerry & Julie's adventures in Northern Virginia ...
Jerry and Julie arrived on a snowy day - we had quite the snowfall for a day in March!!! My older kids had earlier filled the mailbox with snow, but I discovered their antics before the mailman came, so our new guests were able to be delivered.
Jack was due for a nap when I opened the box to let our new friends out ... you can tell he's a sleepy boy here!
But he was super excited to meet Jerry ...
And Julie too ...
Then we introduced them to one of Jack's favorite hanging guys, the froggie
Jack fell asleep and both Jerry and Julie wanted to see what this snow was all about. I hooked on some links so they could get a bird's eye view from one of the trees
From the tree, they saw a snow angel and wanted to know what that was all about
Doesn't Jerry look cold? The wind picked up and blew snow over these little guys, it was freezing so after this we went back inside.
My older kids were occupied, so I decided to fix a nice hot cup of chai with whipped cream to share with my new guests
Jack woke from his nap and was ready for dinner. He discovered Rice Krispies, and both Jerry and Julie kept him company while he ate
I was ready for my dessert, and it turns out that Julie is a fan of Samoas just like me. But why eat Samoas when you can have Samoa ice cream?! Yum! As you can see, Julie finished the rest of the carton.
Everyone is sleeping now, we'll have more adventures tomorrow. I'm not taking them sightseeing until the snow melts later this week. There's plenty to do around the house until then.
When I went to bed last night, I found that I had company ...
Time for breakfast!!! Jack's wearing his new bib from Sydney
Jerry & Julie kept Jack company during his morning nap
And he found them when he woke up
Of course, his favorite thing to do with them is munch
It was a CCD day (Catholic religious education) - the bugs went for a ride on the rearview mirror. Here they are checking out our new church building (we've had a school gym as our church for the past 17 years or so) - it should be done by September
We had to go to the grocery store today after lunch, so the bugs came with. Jack's cracking me up here, it was cold and he wasn't happy about the cold air blowing into the car.
We went through the produce section first
And we really needed more Yo Baby (Jack's favorite food)
I felt funny taking pictures in the grocery store so that's all I really have from that adventure. Natalie was making Julie fly but those pictures didn't turn out.
We brought the bugs to the doctor's for Jack's 8 month checkup.
In the waiting room (Jack hadn't had his breakfast yet, poor Julie!)
And in the exam room, right before shots. Yeah, Jack's not happy here
Then they kept him company at lunch time (this picture of Jack cracks me up!)
It's supposed to be a gorgeous weekend so I will take them sightseeing before I pack them up for their next stop. I haven't gotten a chance to make Julie a passport though.
The weather was really nice today, and I had planned on taking the kids to the park. But naps took over the afternoon and we didn't get a chance. So instead we went for a walk before dinner, and we brought Jerry & Julie with us.
Jack on my back ready to go
Jordan and her scooter before we set out (the flip flops was a bad idea, she did trip on the way home and skinned her knee badly)
Natalie held them for most of the walk - you can see the sun starting to set in Natalie's hair
There's a common area of trees where there are big ornaments hanging. I hung Jerry & Julie there, but I don't know how well you see them and the ornaments.
Proof that Andrew came with us (he rode ahead of us most of the time)
This is the last day for our visitors to hang out with us. They need to go in the laundry and then off to their next destination. But we did take them around today to a couple of places.
Brought them to the park with us. Jack was a little tired - I put him in the swing (his first time ever) and he freaked out! So I took him out and just let Jerry & Julie swing instead.
But then after Jack calmed down, I tried him again in the swing. He still didn't like it ...
Then we had snacks and the bugs wanted some too
Then we made a stop just for Heidi. Andrew took these pictures for me. There's not much to really see in Ashburn, but the fire dept has been here for a while and it's in the center of the old part of town, so I thought that would be a good place to stop. Some of the firefighters were looking at us like we were crazy. ha ha ha
Andrew wanted to be in the picture too.

They are here!!!!
The family was heading out for a walk and Mom knew they should be arriving soon so she stopped by the mailbox on the way out. She was rewarded with Jerry and Julie!! She immediately ripped open the package and had them join the family for the walk.
The sign before you enter the park. It's a good thing we are not pets!
Tucked in with Barrett on the walk
It was so nice out that we stopped off at the playground.
Daddy, Bear, Jerry, and Julie going down the slide. Daddy had his hands full!
Bear is napping right now. Just one hour of Jerry and Julie wiped him out!
When the kiddo woke up we decided to head to Annapolis to enjoy the spring weather
In the car
Photo op with the ducks on the pier
People in MD seem to be really into their state flag, so here is a shot with us all in it
Checking out the Naval Academy. Have you ever seen to grown men so excited to pose with little stuff animals?
Hanging out in front of the State House
Mom and Dad kissing all of us and showing the cool streets of Annapolis
Hey don't leave us in this scary alley!
We got hungry so we stopped for some fast Mexican food. Barrett sure was enjoying his black beans.
He needs to wet his whistle now. Don't worry, it's just water.
Come on guys! Finish eating! We are ready to blow this popsicle stand!
We wanted to go to Ben & Jerry's and this is what we found! Jerry was not happy!
We got home and it was time for Nudie Pants time! I love to be naked so we always have about a 1/2 hour of nudie time before bed. I have to keep my diaper on now though because the carpet was not loving nudie pants time as much as I was!
Oh they are in Barrett's sight! He's gonna get them!
And the leap grab at the end! Check out my serious face.
Daddy tickling us all
Hey where did they go??!
It was off to bed for everyone! We had a great first day!
Playing with Jerry and Julie in the morning. I really was playing with them before, but now all I want is the dog toy! Mom says yuck, but she gave in and just wash the santa grinch toy and lets me play with it to my hearts content! Yeah me! Salty and Cheddar have the best toys! I hope Santa shops at Pet Smart next Christmas!
I army crawled over here to play with my stacker toy. Jerry and Julie were tired and just stayed back by Mom on the quilt.
Helping Mom in the kitchen while she made lunch. Mmm that smells good until she tries to give me some, then I swear she is trying to poison me!
Jerry and Julie helped fix our trailer light hitch up while Bear took a rest. Yeah for being legal!
When I woke up we went to Costco! MMMM samples! Look at us riding in the big cart!
Hey lady! Get out of the way! I'm trying to see what they are giving away at aisle 5!
Jerry got his pic taken to get his very own Costco card!!
Look at all the grub! And other stuff that we really didn't need. TV mount? Really didn't need that!
We got home and went for a walk. As you can see the nice weather has left us for the time being. Jerry and Julie wish they had a bit more clothing too!
Barrett fell asleep on the walk. Jerry and Julie were such good little bugs and were very very quiet!
The next day we went out to lunch and Jerry had a little of Dad's ice tea. Mmmm. He was good and didn't back wash at all, unlike me!
Mom and Dad were really bad hosts for Julie and almost left her at the restaurant!!! This is what they found when they went back!
Tsk tsk! I hope they don't do this to me!
Later in the day we went to Babies R Us, because I have been getting into all kinds of mischief. I wacked my head pretty hard on this step/banister thing! Ouch! Here we are looking at the store. Can you see my mark on my cheek? It just happened too! I bet tomorrow it is wuite black and blue! Jerry and Julie had a blast looking at all the other babes in the store. So many cute babies so little time.
And the last shot of the night, just because it is so cute! I love to attack the camera and Jerry and Julie!
Hi everyone! Just wanted to let you all know that we are at Connor's house for a few days. Upon our arrival we played in the front yard. The weather was beautiful, even met one of his mommy's friends.
He loved his new bib! His mommy said C was being a little stinker so it was a very fitting gift. hee hee
Friday evening was very uneventful. We went to bed early because we had a long weekend planned. Saturday morning we were up bright and early getting ready to go to the river. We had our first boat ride. His mom held us since we forgot our life jackets. We even took a cruise around the island on the golf cart. Later on we helped the boys build the bar. These people don't stop working...
We are back at home for a bit. We played with Connor so much he fell asleep. We are kinda tired too so enjoy the pictures. Promise we will share a few more.
We went to Texas Roadhouse on Monday night!! Here is a few pics.
Eating the yummy rolls.
Loving my new frisbee from the waitress...
We also went to Chocolate World....
Terrible pic of the Hershey sign..
Entering Choc World
Posing with a Hershey Kiss
