August 8th/Week 31

Sorry this is a couple days later than normal – but we just got back from an out-of-state visit with my dad and his wife in Virginia.  I took a TON of photos.  It was exhausting. It was fun. It was a learning experience – traveling with an almost 9-month old isn’t for the faint of heart. But I am so happy we went.  Here are a few shots, here are the rest:

Emma was overtired and a little clingy.

But eventually, Emma perked up and got to use her grandparents as a jungle gym.

Emma watched the Olympics with Grandpa – and the results were shocking.

She chewed on some cat toys.

Much to the chagrin of the cats. They were not pleased to see Emma.

She was NOT interested in sleeping, regardless of how tired she was.

We had a ball destroying reading the newspaper. Hurricane Emma strikes again.

Grandpa taught her how to yo-yo. Well, he tried. But she’s still a little shaky.

We went swimming for the first time.

We splashed, and screamed, and giggled.

We took to it like a fish to water.

Unfortunately, we kept trying to slurp the chlorinated water.

After a couple hours, we were all very tired. And VERY hungry.

So we packed up the car, chilled out a little while, and took off for home.  It was pretty rainy, which makes for good napping.

The road was long, and a bit dreary, but we made it home safely.

A wonderful visit was had by all (besides the cats).
