The children and I departed Phoenix for Louisiana on September 29. It was my first long flight solo, 2 big bags, 2 car seats, 4 carryons, a stroller and one orthopedic shoe. The kids did great and Davis arrived, remembering the New Orleans airport and super excited about the rental minivan. HA! We drove to the Northshore to stay a couple of nights with Laurel, Philips and their 3 girls, Isabel, Caroline and Juliet. Super enjoyable time just hanging with them, the craziness of the kids schedules and staying up late talking. We squeezed in a trip to the park and a visit with Aunt Lynn and Jennifer, who were entertained by the 5 kids for hours. Davis didn't seem to notice the dominance of pink in the house and Grace was in heaven.
I believe Grace is negotiating a trade, a "bink" for a blanket.
Caroline really loved up on Baby Grace during our visit.
