Well, after returning home from a GREAT (and much needed) vacation to Ohio, I am back and ready to get back into the swing of things. We had a wonderful time in the Cleveland area and enjoyed spending time with family. And of course, the chicken burgers and Grandma's cooking were wonderful, too! The babies were extremely well-behaved and loved playing with all of the coasters in the house, and they didn't even fuss one bit during the 8 hour trip, both coming and going. (Thank Goodness!) Xander even made a great new friend in my Grandma's dog, Lucky. My Grandpa and Dan took Kyle to Lake Erie so he could see the Great Lakes for the first time. It was cold, windy and rainy, but he had a blast and even took a sample of lake water to show his favorite teacher.I got to see several family members in Ohio and it was nice catching up with them and having some laughs. I miss Ohio and wish we got the chance to visit more often! One cool thing that I got to see was the Step2 Headquarters off of the Ohio Turnpike in the Hudson area. I wanted to stop and take pictures, but the hubby wanted to keep driving. It was pretty cool for me, though, since Step2 is one of my favorite companies to work with!
After leaving Ohio, we headed to Maryland to spend Thanksgiving with my husband's dad and his family. There were about 40 people there, and it was great getting to see everyone and share some laughs and wonderful food. By the time we got to Maryland, poor Xander had decided he'd had enough and got a little cranky. But there were plenty of grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins to pass him around and keep him entertained! (And give an exhausted Mommy and Daddy a break!) We had a wonderful time, as we always do with that side of the family, and we cannot wait to see them again on Christmas morning!
Here are some photos from our trip!
So as you can see, we had a great time over the Thanksgiving holiday! I hope everyone else had a great time with family and friends, too! Did you do anything special? I'd love to hear about it!
