We're back!!

We survived our trip to Minnesota! We had an amazing time... Emma was great on the plane (even with a 3 hour delay on the way home that got us home way after her bedtime) and it was so wonderful for Emma to finally meet my family. Needless to say that she came bad a tad bit spoiled, but I'm trying to wean her off of that a little ;) My parents loved to be able to spend so much time with her and truth be told it was really nice to have some extra hands.

Emma and I took our first bath together, it was so much fun and I'm not sure why we didn't try it sooner!

Tummy time with her sheep

Getting ready to fly

There was a lot of this going on in Minnesota

Every time Emma woke up there was a new face to look at

I think she's starting to wonder where everyone went now that we're home

ACK! Turns out Jamie and I are guilty of it too ;)

My Auntie Sara getting some Emma snuggles

And my Gram getting her turn ;)

Emma fell in love with this ladybug while we were there, she misses her.

My cousin Sarah, the amazing designer ;)

My Aunt Susan, though right now Emma seems more concerned with that cake

Emma's new trick... sucking her thumb!

My cousins Chloe and Kelly fawning over Emma

Cousin Jalen and Emma

My Auntie Kate and Emma

Cousin Laura and Emma

My Gramps giving his great-granddaughter a bottle. Emma was so enthralled with him, she loved to look at his handsome face.

She also loved to hold his hand

This is my Gramps and one of his classmates (class of '34). How cute are they?

4 generations of Jacksons

My Gramps even played some baseball with us at the reunion (you'll notice that Jamie seemed to catch the perfect moment, you'd think he was a professional or something)

Emma was a little tired from all the socializing :)

The reunion softball teams

4 generations of (gorgeous) Evans ladies

When we got home, Emma and Wills got geared up for the Olympics. They are still deciding which sport they are going to participate in 20 years from now... I'm thinking ice skating since Wills will be able to easily throw Emma in the air, but I'm not sure what Wills' daddy thinks of that idea.

Emma's other new trick, drooling. She is such a slobber monster these days!
