Iowa!

This was taken just before we left. I was doing dishes and gave Z some bubbles to play with. Of course they went straight to his mouth! We had so much fun with family in Iowa. From left to right: Z's mommy, Z's great great Grandma Grosvenor, his great Grandma VN with Z, and Z's Grandma (my mom)

My Great Grandma Grosvenor and me. She always says, "Say pickle!" when we take a picture. She's so funny and has great stories about her grandma smoking a pipe and her grandpa owning a fleet of ships in Sweden. I interviewed her on video camera to get some of the stories on DVD. I also got her and my grandparents to video a message to Z for when he's older.
So there was no cell phone coverage or internet service where I was, so I'm just now able to update everyone. Now that I'm back, others have gone. My best friend is visiting her folks in California, Ben's grandparents are in Israel for a tour and our good friend, Matt S, is in Scotland for a week. Please keep their safety in your prayers! Thanks!

I feel like I earned my mommy badge trying to manage a 10 1/2 month old on the plane. Two out and two back. Layovers weren't easy either. I could tell God hand-picked who sat by us each plane ride. Lesson learned: Don't travel with wiggle worm unless a short direct flight and absolutely necessary!

Sounds like you had a grand ol' time! As for traveling with little ones (or in your case, 'one'), yah, it has it moments of unfunness but it is a necessary trial if we are to see the ones we love. A trial for sure but well worth it! :) Glad you're back!

Looks like you had a wonderful time! Josh just got here late last night, and boy am I glad to have him. This has been the anti-vacation until now. I'll post about it soon, but it all boils down to an 8 month-old who is teething, thrown completely off his schedule and has developed separation anxiety.
