3 Cousins and an Old Red Barn

I don't know if it was all the child labor we enforced making them carry their own luggage or what, but our kiddos were tired when we arrived in Michigan. They found a couple of benches and stretched out while we waited on the rental.
Traveling really makes you throw all germ caution to the wind.

Oh, and I can't forget to document Lily and Avery holding hands in the airport shuttle. Those two are either all sweet or all sour.

Finally, we got the van and strapped them in for yet another hour long drive to freshen up at the hotel.

Then we were treated to an amazing rehearsal dinner where I was worried the whole time that they weren't being quiet enough.


Those environments with kids in tow really stress me out. Thankfully good wine was flowing freely. Hopefully it was drowning out the noise for the other guests too.

The next day they got to run freely at my grandparents farm.

More sweetness.

Wide open space...it does us good.

Until mama wants some pictures. They obliged for a while though.



One smell of this barn took me back to being 8 years old when my grandparents raised pigs. So many memories.








The only offending smell that day was my baby's diaper. It looks like she was wriggling it out in the above pictures.

When vacation is over I don't have any more excuses for putting off the training. May vacation last forever...

Ah cute! Love the one of them on the benches. SO glad you had a good time.
Hubby is off all next week so I'm working on planning fun things to do. Yippy.
