We've been to four states now!

My parents came back yesterday after going to Pennsylvania to visit my Grandma Marion for a few days. Kenna and Michal were both thrilled to see them and Kenna couldn't wait to grab her grandpa's finger and lead him around again.

Today we decided to drive to Michigan. I'd love to say that the motivation was purely to go to the beach but it was really to go to the Hanna Andersson Outlet sale. It took us an hour and 15 minutes to get there and FOUR HOURS to get home. There was construction for miles and miles and I was ready to celebrate when we got up to a whopping four miles per hour. The girls were real troopers even when it was way past dinner time and I had nothing to feed them since I hadn't planned on being gone nearly that long.

The outlet mall is actually in Indiana, right on the Michigan border, and we did go down to the beach in Michigan, so the girls have now been to four states! Not bad for five weeks as US citizens.

Today is my mom's birthday so we had dinner reservations -- and a babysitter -- tonight! Given our long drive home, we ended up pushing both back 30 minutes. Once home we all threw on clean clothes and ran out the door. We had a very nice dinner though and it was the first time we've left the girls with a babysitter for any length of time.

Happy Birthday Grandma!
