Ohio and Michigan Trip

In September we took a trip up to Michigan for Brian's cousin's wedding. On the way we stopped in Ohio to visit with my grandma and also had the sweet blessing of visiting with some old friends that I haven't seen in years!! We were also able to stop in Cincinnati since it is right on the way home and see some great friends from college. The trip overall was very good. I was most concerned about the kids sleeping arrangements, even over the long car ride, because Alayna had never slept in the pack-n-play and Daniel needs a rail on his bed so that he doesn't' fall out! But the first night, Alayna went to sleep beautifully and Daniel just slept on a mattress on the floor, so when he fell out, which he did, it was just a short distance to the floor! He didn't even wake up when he fell!! The wedding was beautiful and I was able to meet some of Brian's family that I had never met before! We had a great time visiting and catching up with everyone and everyone enjoyed seeing how much the kids had grown! In Cincinnati, our sweet friend Christy made dinner for everyone who came over to visit with us. She makes a yummy cranberry chicken! Oh so good! Daniel and Alayna did great in the car, although Daniel watched dvds the entire time! I felt like he needed a t.v fast when we returned home. I think he probably watched the movie Cars 20 times! Overall it was a great trip, but being in the car with two very voung children for over 36 hours total was interesting!
