I’m sort of that pregnant person. Who gets behind. It happens. Moving on.
It was such a wonderful trip! I can never get enough of being with everyone. Sophie traveled like a dream (bless her). I was quite a spectacle in the airport (pregnant belly, pushing a stroller, carrying a giant car seat in a backpack carrier on my back, and dragging a colossal suitcase), but managed pretty darn well. Fellow travelers were very kind and complimentary of Sophie, for which I was grateful. Thanks for your travel tips!
I couldn’t possibly do the full trip justice in words, so here are the pictures with captions (thank you to my sister Elisabeth who took almost all of these). Just know that it was glorious, and trips to visit my parents and sisters are never long enough. Sigh…
It also included a trip to the Scharffen Berger chocolate stand (try the dark chocolate nibby–you’ll thank me) and Sophie’s first doughnut. It was divine and chocolate-filled, and girlfriend dug right in. As in, chocolate filling up her nose and still shoving it in as fast as she could. Sadie was much daintier with her lemon-filled.
Sophie couldn’t get enough of Luke. She followed him everywhere, tried to get him to chase her everywhere, and wanted to touch (read: steal/pilfer/swipe) everything he played with. He was endlessly patient with her, bless him.
Doesn’t my sister have the most beautiful children!? Seriously. Sadie Lady is a dream and every time we see photos of Luke, Michael says “he’s so GQ!” We aspire to have our baby boy dress as dashing as Luke. What a dreamboat.
THANK YOU to Elisabeth, Jordan, Mom, Dad, Luke and Sadie. We love you and miss you already!
