Trip to Michigan Post #3

Mommy and Eden
Logan and Elijah playing Sorry!
Mommy tried to play the piano but Logan and Kayley decided to join in too.
Sunday, Mommy and Pop took Kayley and Logan to Urgent Care because they had fevers and said their throats hurt---They had Hand, Mouth, Foot...poor kids.
Playing trains
Kayley played a lot with Eden one day. It was very cute.
Monday we went to see Pop at his office
Then we went to the Pixie to eat. Kayley fell asleep instead of eating
Eden and Logan
Kayley was in a bad mood until Pop got home from work. Then she was as happy as could be. Elijah and Kayley liked playing bubbles with Pop.
Mommy trying to swing with Ethan!
Kayley wearing Mommy's first pair of glasses that she had in 2nd grade.
Heading out of town on the way to Detroit, we stopped at the school to take a picture of us in front of the Maple Building before they tear it down. Pop, Lola, Mommy, and Nana all went to school in that building.
We stopped at the mall on the way to the airport to have lunch with Uncle Ryan. Kayley drove Evan in an ice cream truck.

Logan and Uncle Ryan
Yeah! She went to Aunt Lola without bribing!
At the airport

Kayley was quite cranky in the airport and on the plane. Mommy couldn't get Logan to keep up with her at the Detroit Airport....but at the Richmond Airport, Mommy couldn't keep up with Logan! He was SO excited to go see Daddy. Kayley's mood was great once she saw Daddy! We missed him and are thankful he was ok with us being gone a week in Michigan!

Kayley and Pop
Kayley really wanted to play in this before Evan got to Nana and Pop's house. She bounced pretty fast in it!
Tuesday, we went for a horse and wagon ride at one of Pop's client's house (also Mommy's friend from high school's dad)
Pop drove a team of horses for the first time ever. Kayley sat with Mr. Filhart at one point and even fell asleep on his lap!
We went into Shepherd and got some ice cream! Kayley woke up right before we left to go back to the farm.
Mommy even got to drive the team!
Kayley helped Pop drive the team.
It was a nice way to spend 2 hours outside!
When we got home, Aunt Lola, Eden, Ethan, Elijah, and Evan were there.

Trip to Michigan Post #1

The end of June--Mommy, Logan, and Kayley flew to Michigan for a week. We wanted to go and it was perfect timing because we got one more flight free before having to pay for Kayley when she turns 2! Daddy took us to the airport before work. He, of course, took Logan and Kayley on the escalator, which they love.
They did great on the plane!!
After a few delays, we finally made it to Michigan. Aunt Lola, Eden, Ethan, and Elijah picked us up from the airport. We went to get Evan and then headed to their new house. Logan and Kayley had a lot of fun playing with their cousins. Kayley refused to take a nap even though it was past nap time. She was VERY happy when Nana arrived though!
Kayley and Ethan playing in the sprinkler
Aunt Lola put Mommy and Kayley to work hoeing her garden
Finally, when the kids sat down to watch a movie before dinner, Kayley fell asleep!
We left after dinner to go to Nana and Pop's house. Logan and Kayley were so excited to see Pop! It took a little bit to calm them down and get them in bed!
