One day while driving along with the kiddos, we passed two women running together on the sidewalk. Evelyn was all excited and yelled, "Look mommy, cool runner girls like you!!" :)

pics from Michigan

Well - Noah and I survived the red-eye flight back to Michigan. He did really well - a little tired/cranky at first... but then was able to catch a few hours of sleep, so he was much happier.

The trip has been pretty relaxing... went to the park, Papa took Noah on the 4-wheeler, Noah has been learning the names of a lot of animals that are stuffed around our house (for those of you that don't know, my dad flies around the world to hunt big game animals), visited with extended family/neighbors, caught up on sleep, I even managed to fit in a few runs - even on the freezing cold days! Remind me not to think the weather is ever too cold in Seattle for running... I just need to remember what it's like to run in Michigan and be thankful for the weather I have :)

All for now... we fly back Monday morning. Just going to relax and enjoy the remainder of the visit :)

The middle picture cracks me up! I think all little boys and their grandpa's are the same - I must have 8 copies of my dad and JJ doing the same thing (and Sponge Bob is usually on the TV, too) :)

Have a great visit!

So glad you had a chance to fly home with Noah. I hope you had a great relaxing time. And it sounds like your survived the flights!

And I had no idea your dad was a big hunter!

I had so much fun visiting with you on Saturday. I wish we could have seen Noah. I am looking forward to the X-Mas holiday to visit some more. I hope NYE works out :)
