Max's First Trip to PA

Thursday morning we made the decision to go up to PA for the weekend. In order to nonrev up there, we had to fly into Baltimore and rent a car rather than fly into Harrisburg. The plane ride both there and back went really well, both kiddos were pretty good. There was only a few minutes of screaming from Max. And a few minutes of screaming from Charlotte - so all in all a pretty good experience.

I was thinking about attempting this trip by myself, but Judd took pity on me and decided to accompany me. I'm very glad he did!

Charlotte got to try out her new suitcase.

We took an evening flight on Thursday and got to my parent's house pretty late Thursday night. Both kids adjusted well and slept pretty well. Friday morning my parents went to work and we hung out and ran a couple of errands.

Saturday, Max got to meet both of his great-grandmothers on my side. I was so happy that it worked out that we could see both of my grandmothers. We visited my Grammie at her place, and my Dad picked up Grandma so she could spend the day with us.

Both of my sisters and their husbands came to my parent's house on Saturday. We all celebrated Rachel's birthday with a yummy dinner Saturday night. Charlotte thought it was just another "birfday" celebration for her.

It was awesome to be there with everyone. I'm always so jealous when I hear that my family has gotten together. Both of my sisters are only an hour away from my parents, and weekend get togethers happen frequently. I was thrilled when I found out we would all be together for dinner.

I hadn't seen Jacob in 6 months - and has he ever changed! He is so sweet. We got multiple smiles and giggles out of him - he seemend to be a big fan of Uncle Judd. I just know that Jacob and Max will be causing all kinds of trouble in a couple of years. My favorite picture of the weekend:

Seriously cute cousins.

(I only had my iPhone with me this trip - so these are all iPhone pictures.)

We are back home now. Kids were both in bed by 7:30. Pizza and Super Bowl for Judd and me.

It was a busy weekend - but our first trip went really well. It gives me hope that there will be many more weekend like this in our future.

Wow! Charlotte looks like quite the experienced jet-setter with her cute suitcase :)

I love her suitcase. Handley saw some kids with their own suitcases on our trip this week and informed me that is what she'd like for her birthday. She'd be jealous of Charlotte's!
