Home Again

We're back! We had a nice trip to Michigan to visit family and attend the big wedding event. I am pleased to report that our return trip was much less eventful than the flights out. We brought Derek's car seat on the plane and gave him a big 'ol dose of Benadryl to knock him out just in case he was maybe going to have some kind of allergic reaction.

Ahhhh, the sweet sound of your medicated baby snoring the hours away.

Wait, did I say baby? Because we actually left for Michigan with a baby and came home with a 2-year-old. But I think I'm going to reserve the right to continue to refer to him as a baby for a number of reasons:

1) He's our youngest child
2) We're not having any more
3) I pushed him through my loins and can call him whatever I want

Where was I? Oh yes, we're back in Idaho and I'm back to my Internet job of periodically updating my blog, reading a bunch of other ones, checking in with Facebook, and shopping. If only it was a paying job!

One of the first things I did after arriving at home was to upload the pictures I took on the 2-week trip. All six hundred twenty nine of them. Gulp. I think there are even 1 or 2 with me in them! Like this family shot we took at the wedding...

Well I'm off to catch up with an old friend-- my DVR. But I promise to be back soon with lots of pictures from our trip which could definitely be titled "The trip of a thousand popsicles."

Try to contain yourselves. Too much excitement isn't good for you.

What a great picture!!! A beautiful family. Please send my love to your DVR. I am going on 3 weeks without television and would kiss a DVR if I saw it in person.

Happy you had such a fun trip and can't wait for you to catch us up!
