To Grandmother's House We Go

Bryan has some training to do mid-July so we fly home to stay with Grandma & Grandpa O'Brien.The trip back is a note how how much can go wrong when traveling with children and in the heat. The first plane ride to Chicago goes off without a hitch, minus the usual short crying. When we're finally ready to board our next flight  we get word that it's been delayed 45 minutes. After our extended wait, we board the plane, only to get word to deplane after sitting in the heat for half an hour. We are then rushed to another gate, wait another 45 minutes and finally end up on another flight, only this one has no bathroom service available and no air conditioning. Awesome. Edwin behaves well enough, thank to some very funny and understanding fellow passengers. We have a Dragons baseball game the very next day.


"See, Papa?See?"


I'm so awesome

"What sort of call was that?!"


New Dragons hat!

He's really starting to pay attention to what the people on the field are doing at the games and he was even on the jumbo-tron screen for a few seconds! He slept very well after so much excitement. 

It's been a very busy time running around to different events and visiting people. We made doughnuts with the cousins and we've gone swimming a million times, taken long walks in the evening and eaten so much summer time food we should all weigh a million pounds. The swimming has been Edwin's new favorite activity.

 Aunt Erin suggests  a trip to: NEWPORT AQUARIUM! We decide to take it a little later that week. (Next post, it was a loooong day.)
