After much fretting and worrying about making it to my parents' house with both girls, we are here and having a great time! The were both wonderful in the airports, on the planes, and all without any napping! My dad has been out of town and returns today, so we have had 4 days of 'girl-time' with Nana. Aly is attached at the hip to my mom, and is loving all of the one-on-one book-reading. Caroline has become an expert stair-climber and has perfected crawling to the point of exhaustion (mine!) We have taken full advantage of the New York weather and had picnics, trips to the park, and a visit to the lake. We still have a week of vacation left, and Chad is coming to join us on Tuesday. Although I spend the majority of the year wishing that my parents lived closer, we are so blessed for these weeks to have a hideaway like this to visit!
