A Baby & a Birthday

At the beginning of November the kids and I took a road trip to Indiana. We went for several reasons…my mom's birthday, the birth of a nephew, to see grandparents, to see my college roommate and to meet her newest addition. It was a jam packed 4 days, but as you will notice in the pictures we had a blast.

We left home on a Saturday. Our 1st stop was Daddy's football game near Columbus, OH. After the game we traveled to Indianapolis to visit my college roommate. Here are the big kids playing together.

And here we are with our little ones
After dinner we continued our trek to Evansville, IN where my brother and his family lives. Thankfully the 9 hour drive went really well!

The drive may have gone well, but this is about how I felt the next morning…I did not want to get up. Poor guy!

We spent lots of time with cousin Morgan playing and watching movies in our pj's

Kolter received lots of grandparent attention

We also celebrated several birthdays including my Mom's/Nana's, mine, and my niece Morgan's.

This is the beautiful cake my SIL Sharin made for us. It was so pretty and she was the one having a baby the next day!

We celebrated Morgan's 3rd bday

Kolter enjoyed the wrapping paper

We had to get outside a bit

Nana entertaining the little one

Learning how to play basketball with a little assistance

Nora trying to understand the concept…she was happier on Papa's shoulders

And we can't forget the best part…little Ryker's birth!

Nora being a princess and getting some pampering from Tache…Nora was insistent on sparkly pink nail polish.

After all the fun we made our way back home. The kids did great! We made the 8 hour drive home with only 1 stop and that was for lunch. There was very little crying and that was a huge blessing! But as you can tell everyone was a little tired.
