The Michaels Family just returned from a mega-long car trip. Last Tuesday, January 3, Chris lost his grandfather. On Thursday, Chris, myself, Sara Kate, Jenny, Jason, Hannah, Hayden, and Sharon began a 20 hour journey to Pennsylvania (Bob was already up there). Chris and I drove my car with Sara Kate and Hannah (a 20 month old and a 3 and a half year old, mind you!), and Sharon's car carried Jenny, Jason, Hayden, and Sharon. The girls did wonderfully on the trip, thanks in part to a DVD player borrowed from Jason's sister. I think it was a big help for Sara Kate to have her cousin in the car. It took us 2 days to get there, we were there for a full day on Saturday, and it took us 2 days to get back. Here are some images from all the states Sara Kate visited on her first MEGA LONG road trip!
Sara Kate got alot of bonding time with her cousins and her aunt and uncle, too. We are very blessed to have these kids in our lives and their parents in our lives!
We also made a little detour on the way back to visit one of the Great Lakes, Lake Erie!! It was soooo cold!! But it was very neat to see such a landmark.
Needless to say, it's GOOD to be home!!!
