Ohio Vacation Day 1 & 2

We're back, and boy did we have fun! I am going to try to blog each day of small adventure, so that should keep me busy for the next week. Thankfully, we left the house in decent order, so I've only had to catch up by unpacking a few things, doing a couple loads of laundry, and heading to the grocery store (next on the agenda). Without further ado, here are the pictures-
We "charged" out the door around 6:30 AM for our 13.5 hour car trip. We were experimenting a bit with seating arrangements, and ended up puting the girls in the way back of the van, with one of the middle seats up to "service" everybody. It worked great... I had access to the laundry basket of books, crayons, CDs, etc. and the cooler was easily within reach. After 3 or 4 hours, we found ourselves in a stand still on the Wisconsin freeway. Here is a picture of the hold-up.
Thankfully we were only delayed 15 minutes or so, and much later in the day after 13 happy hours in the car, we were greeted by thisand the family reuniting began...
Thor had changed so much since we last saw him at Christmastime!
After dinner, the kiddos took Saturday night baths together. Eva and Hope thought it was really funny to imitate Thor sucking on his duckie.Everyone went to bed quite exhausted from the long day. Sunday morning we were up early for an 8:00 worship service at a local park.
Later in the day, we headed to Stephanie's parents' home to visit with Andy and Leslie. They served us up a lip smackin' good (almost southern) meal of BBQ ribs, cornbread, canteloupe, cucumber salad, baby potatoes, iced tea and TWO kinds of pie. Yum! After lunch we sat out on the back porch and chatted while the girls explored the "farm."
The end of a very restful Sunday.
