Back to Ohio … overall it was a great trip and I had a great time getting to know the fabulous woman whom Pook is lucky enough to call his Nana. One can never predict when things are going to change, so we all need to make a point to take advantage of the time we have with one another. Today, I have a goal for you guys. No, I’m not asking you to go out and smother the elders that are in your family, but I challenge each and every one of you to reach out to someone in your family. Let it be someone in your extended family, immediate family, the brother or sister who is the black sheep or hell let it even be someone who you wish was in your family. Inform this person the love that you have for them, that you care for the, and most of all thank them for being in your life today. At the same time, part of this challenge is for me too, so I intend to give 100% of my full participation in this little activity as well.
Ok, I'm for real now ... back to the Ohio trip AGAIN! As you might imagine, the pictures are not too exciting, but I'll still share. For some reason I haven’t really been in the mood for taking pictures lately, especially on this trip. Weird, I know! I’m starting to worry that I have the pregnancy blues again, but that’s a whole other post in and of itself. So … well … here are some of the pictures from the trip.
On our way to the airport
Cole loved exploring the airport
He was half-way decent on the plane and behaved himself (somewhat)
A nice lady moved so we had our own row on the way there. We had plans for him to lay down and take a nap on that middle seat, but it never happened.
We chilled in the kitchen the majority of the trip. Here is Cole and I, well duh, in the kitchen chillin!
We carved pumpkins
My masterpiece. Pook thought his pumpkin was the greatest pumpkin carving in the world, I think mine looks pretty darn good. I'm just sayin!
Bob Evans is my new favorite chain restaurant. Holy shit they have a mean omelet. I loved it so much I made them go back for three meals. Sure wish they had this yummy goodness down South.
Pook was so proud of the bridge that he and his father made when he was in highschool. I mean look at it people, that takes talent. I told him he should seriously look into bridge building as a profession.
It was faaareezing!
Baby cakes all bundled up
The foliage was beautiful, and that's coming from someone that hates the fall. I know it's crazy, but really though, fall is my least favorite season. I always seem to get in the worst funk come the first day of fall. I'm a summer lovin' kind of girl.
Father & son
Blurry, but I still love
Way overdressed, but the scarf was adorable.
We decided to bite the bullet and give Cole his first hair cut. Bye, bye little rat-tail. Weep! Weep!
Us with Nana ... can you guess where we are? In the kitchen! Always! Not that I have a problem with kitchens or anything ... but sometimes I would go and sit in the living room in hopes that they would follow me, but nope, it never happened. They prefered the hard kitchen table chairs and not the plush recliners in the living room. Damn, I sound old, but when you're carrying extra baby weight a girl needs a soft place to rest her large ass.
