Surprise visit!!

This weekend we made a surprise trip up to Michigan to visit my family. It was a great time and fun to completely surprise everyone. Ethan and Adalyn just ate up all the time with Grandma and Adalyn just completely blossomed while we were there. Her little personality is really starting to shine and she is the funniest little thing! Case in point:

Adalyn had climbed on top of the picnic table and I told her she needed to get down because she was going to fall. Next thing I know she is giving me this big grin, puts her fingers to her cheeks, sticks out her tongue and starts going Na Na Na while waving her head side to side. It was the cutest thing ever and all I could do was laugh!!

She has also developed a love of animals... as long as said animal is not within 10 feet of her. It does not however keep her from chasing after them! She followed my brother's cat all around his field for the longest time. The cat just played with her- it would lay down till she got close then get up move a few feet away and lay down again only to move as she got closer. I did manage to get some beautiful pictures of her though while she played this game with the cat.

See...




Both kids also did really well on the 8 hour drive to and from. I was a little nervous about the trip home as it would all be during the day and I was worried they'd get bored. They did really well and this was what they looked like about and hour into the trip...



Ethan soon followed Adalyn into dreamland and both slept for almost half the trip! I was impressed and quite relieved :)

Here are some more pictures from our fun weekend- enjoy!
