Back Home

Yesterday we returned from a week & a half vacation to Michigan, visiting Justin's extended family. That's a long trip from Georgia! The three of us flew there & back and it was pretty crazy traveling with a soon-to-be one year old. Trying to think of all of the things he would need (travel high chair, travel crib, etc.) and then fitting it all in with our clothes for the trip? We don't want to do that again any time soon!!

Everything went pretty smoothly considering, and Orson was really good for the flight back (a bit hyper on the way up, but we were able to keep him busy). We stayed in a lakehouse on Lake Michigan for the first half of the trip & had an awesome time playing Settlers of Catan with some of Justin's siblings. We stayed at a relative's house for the 2nd part of the trip & were very happy to visit with more family over there but having to pack up everything again to travel to their house kind of made us long to be home. Those last days were very busy, though, and soon we were on the plane again & wishing we could have seen more of them.

Now I am trying to catch up on work, catch up with blogs, and I have barely even touched the pile of photos (I got about 500 from him mom's camera to sort through too!). As I get them edited I'll probably post some over on Orson's blog, feel free to check in there! Just wanted to drop in quickly & let you all know why I've been MIA for so long! (I don't really like announcing trips online ahead of time... 'Hey guys! Our place will be totally empty for the next two weeks!', haha.)
