Family Reunion 2009

This one was a whirl wind!!!  Because Ben's immediate family was not able to attend this year we decided to only go up north for one day.  We decided to go up Friday night and come home Saturday night, that is a long trip to make!  It is about 4 hours each way.  

We traveled at night in hopes that the kids would sleep but it didn't really work out that way.  They were so good and were pretty quiet and entertained themselves quite well until the last 45 minutes of the trip back home, but that crabbiness was short lived.

We both were really glad we went and had fun seeing everyone.  We hung out with Lindsey & Ryan down at the beach which was fun and the after the reunion we went to House of Flavors to get ice cream and then swam at the pool where Grandma Corey was staying.  The kids LOVED the pool!  They would have stayed there all night had we let them.  Kobe is doing great swimming and S loves the water too!!!

After that we got some dinner and hit the road.  It was a quick but fun trip.  It was a good year for us to be there by our selves.  Having 2 kids changes how flexible you can be and this way we just did whatever worked for us!  No stress, no schedule.  That is my kind of day!
