OK – on to our whirlwind Midwest Adventures. I’m going to work my way backwards because that’s how it’s in my head right now.
We ended our week in Milwaukee as a family. Andrew had joined us midway through the week and it was a huge relief to have him around – – – while I can manage the girls on my own, it’s a beautiful thing when he’s there to help. I cannot say enough how thankful I am to have a husband that is self-sufficient at caring for our kiddos and is truly helpful.
Our trip extended over Andrew’s grandmother’s birthday. His mom put together a small gathering so people could celebrate with her and we managed to get all the great grandkids together at once. I wasn’t able to get a shot of everyone together, but I know that others did, so it is documented somewhere 🙂
This was the roughest day of the trip for me. I’d already done so much traveling on my own with the girls – I was just exhausted – and after a week of playing Pass The Baby, I honestly missed cuddling with my littlest girl. If there is anything I regret about the trip, it’s that I didn’t catch up with more family at the party. I kinda pooped out in the sun on the porch, but I did get some quality conversation in with some folks out there. So, to the extended family, sorry about that – but it was needed for my sanity. It was great to see each of your faces 🙂
And, I did capture this lovely shot of Grandma Great with Claire. It makes me happy when I can get moments like this.
