Road Trip

This weekend we drove to Oklahoma for Eric's sister's graduation. We were a little nervous about taking Eli on such a whirlwind trip and having him miss his naps, stay up late, etc... Those of you with kids know that things can go one of two ways: One, your baby goes insane and you end up missing all events and activities because you are standing outside holding your screaming child, or, two, your baby surprises you by how well he does and you're glad you brought him along.

Fortunately, Eli fell into the second category. :) He did great! We were so glad that we could be there to celebrate Jennifer's graduation and to see the family. We got exactly zero good pictures of Jennifer- they're all super blurry because we were so far away. So here are a few of Eli and us...

Eli loved exploring the hotel room.

Eli and me waiting for graduation to start. Fortunately, there were a lot of other kids there too, so it didn't matter that he was a little noisy. :)

Eric and Eli posing on Eric's brother's motorcycle. NO, I did not let them go for a ride. :)

Today we are just hanging out at home, getting back into our routine, and enjoying the gorgeous weather.

We had a great time this weekend and look forward to another trip to Oklahoma this summer so that we can spend more time with our dear family. Love you guys!
