Ohio Travels and Noah's 1st Easter

Hello There!
We just got back from our trip to Ohio on Tuesday and this is the first time I've had free time to post.  Lot's of catching up at work and unpacking at home.

The trip was such a great trip!  Noah did amazing on his first extremely long road trip.  We left super early so he would sleep most of the beginning of the drive.  Everytime I visit home, it feels less and less like home.  I guess it would since it's been 3 years since I lived there.  However, it's always nice to see family and friends.  Noah got to meet lots of new people too.  All in all we had a great Easter vacation.

Talking to the trees as we were driving on the highway and telling them some obviously funny stories.

He enjoyed being able to get out of his car seat and stretch his legs a bit at the rest stops.

And Mamaw Debbie

Oh yes and his little protector, Isabella

He met new people who's hair he could pull instead of mommy's

And of course one of my best friends and his adopted Aunt Shelly

Noah excited to see what the Easter bunny brought!

It's easy to say he was spoiled.  And so was I. I got that nice basket for the living room to put his toys in.

His favorite Easter gifts and his first chit chat with the bunny himself.

We got to see all of my aunts, uncles, cousins, my grandparents, plus many more throughout the trip.  But one of the highlights was getting to spend some quality time with my sister and her beautiful family. 

This is a sneak peak at a photo shoot we had at the flower garden in the park.  We had such a GREAT time!  We also got to spend a night with my sister and as I expected, we stayed up until the early hours of the morning catching up.
I also can't believe how big my youngest niece has got.  This was us in the morning as we were both getting ready and doing our makeup : )
Since I've been itching to do some crafts and since I've learned how to crochet but have yet to finish anything.  I made it my mission to make something.  Since her big sister and mom both have crochet blankets, I'm making her one in her favorite color, PURPLE.

This is the start of what I got done in the car on the way home.  I'm hoping to have it done by the time we go back in June for my friend's wedding. 

When I got home and checked the mail, the nice bowl I ordered from Amy at Bumble Bee Lane was in.
It's perfect for my homemade potpourri!  Thanks for shipping it so fast, I love it!

Now it's time to get back to work and start catching up on lots of reading!
