Our Trip to Ohio

Yes, against my husband's better judgment, I made the trip south and crossed that ominous border into Ohio country. Heehee! :)
My friend had a wedding in Columbus, where my aunt and uncle live. Yay!! I drove the whole way down, since my friend worked third shift the night before - she was supposed to be sleeping, but we pretty much talked the whole time!:)
Caedmon and I had the most wonderful time! He did an amazing job around so many new people and in a new place!
My Grandpa drove the couple hours over to see us and meet Caedmon for the first time. It was so great to see him!
My aunt was sympathetic to keeping Caedmon on his schedule, so although she felt bad, we didn't do much outside of sticking around the house and visiting. Which was just fine with me - I would have loved to have gone to the zoo, but Caedmon without a nap is not a pretty sight! It was just nice to catch up and reminisce. She and I did get out once by ourselves, and once with Miss Brooke, while Grandpa babysat (Caedmon was sleeping both times).
Here are some fun pics from our visit - Enjoy!:)

Grandpa and Caedmon hit it right off!

The cousins (second cousins) and Grandpa

After checking out Uncle Keith's peach trees, we hung out in the back yard for a little bit

Caedmon's favorite thing to do these days - mind you, he's not even crawling yet

Here's Grandpa making a fort and Caedmon taking it down:)

Brookie managed to go through the fort a few times before Caedmon got ahold of the blankets again

Grandpa, with his second grandchild and first great grandchild:)

The dogs were more interesting than the camera

Brookie had fun pulling Caedmon around the living room and he didn't seem to mind too much:) (he's not quite ready for the wheel barrel)

Fun with bubbles!

Thank you so much for opening your home and your hearts to us this past weekend!

We love you!

I love these! Your grandpa looks radiant, I'm so glad you could make this trip. I really hope I can get over there in a few months before your baby gets all grown up!
