Our trip to Mark and Grace's to see Sierra!!

The night of the Palazzolo wedding, Mark texted and said that Grace's water broke!
The kids that were at the wedding headed home as soon as they could, and got home around 3 a.m.
We hurried to get packed the next morning, and the whole family left around 11. Just before we left, Mark told us that "Baby Cox" had arrived at 9:36 a.m.! We were super hyped to leave then :D
We told him not to let us know if it was a boy or a girl!!
After 8 hours of driving and a stop or two, we got to Mark and Grace's house around 8 p.m.
We all closed our eyes and held on to each other as Mark led us into their room. Once we opened our eyes, the baby lying in Grace's arms was wearing a pink dress! It was a girl!
