Home Sweet Home: Family Time

After a fabulous time at LBI, we drove across the state to Erie. Eleanora was a trooper, although we quickly learned that traveling with a baby takes much longer than it used to! Many tears, frequent stops, and bribes of teething crackers later we arrived safe and sound for a glorious few days in Erie.

Kissing her buddy Keegan. Won't this be perfect for their wedding montage?!

We then traveled to Pittsburgh and spend a few days with Ben's family. Eleanora enjoyed playing with all the babies, rolling around in the grass, and spending time with family.

After an exhausting trip, we flew back to Arizona with an extra passenger - Joel! He stayed with us for about a week and was a wonderful uncle, brother, and Charlie-lover.

What a great trip!

I love that one too! All great pictures of your travels. UB says "tell her to quit growing until Christmas so I can feel like I'm part of the process!"
We love you!
