meeting baby Ava and another stop on the birthday train

We drove to Nashville this past weekend and jam-packed it with family visits and Christopher's 20 year high school reunion activities. Our first (and very exciting) stop was at Travis & Aftin's home to meet our precious new niece. She is the first baby girl on the Swearingen side of the family and we all fell in love with her.
We also chugged Joseph's birthday train over to Nana & Papa's home for another party with our family. (I think the birthday train has now left the station for this year.)
Nana ordered a Toy Story cake which he loved.
He also hammed it up for some pictures.
No one looks very excited in this picture. In fact, they all look like bored little angels.
Ok - there's our clown!
(Joseph was trying to be a very good big cousin and hold still while holding Ava)
