|Reading her new favorite book on the plane|
While I knew Jeff could handle both girls, I thought I would take it easy on him and only leave him with one. And although I had to buy a ticket for Katie and Carly would have been free, I knew that traveling with a 3 year old would be a lot easier than with a 19 month old. So I quickly made logistical arrangements and everything fell into place. Katie and I left early on Thursday morning and returned late Monday night. It was a wonderful trip and I am so glad I went. Now if only we all didn't all live so far apart.

|Thank you Aunt Kim for having so many wonderful new things to play with including this adorable rocking chair that was just Katie's size.|

It was such a wonderful trip and a big thank you to Janice and Papa and Grandma for helping out so much while I was gone. As always we couldn't have done it without you!
