I've Been Everywhere...

We just returned home after being on the road for two weeks.  Staying in eight different hotels made it a whirlwind tour!  We first headed to Minneapolis where Chet was invited to speak to the FDA for an awards banquet.  We left a day early so we could spend one day at the Mall of America.  Hannah loved the indoor amusement park and spending time at the Disney Store and the American Girl store.  Of course, we had to play mini golf... Hannah's favorite!

We were very excited that the amusement park inside the mall was very accommodating and let Chet ride almost every ride there.  Other than Disney, there aren't any other theme parks that will even discuss it with him.  Hannah was very brave and tried several types of different rides.  She rode this bus that went up into the air and kiddie bumper cars (twice at each!).

 After Minnesota, we headed down to Glasgow, Kentucky for Chet's cousin's wedding.  The ceremony was held outside the bride's childhood home.  Such a beautiful setting and a beautiful ceremony!  We loved getting visit with several of Chet's family!

After the wedding, we headed down to Nashville for the CareNet conference that we have attended for several years.  It was held at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel right next to the Grand Ole Opry.  We had a great time at the conference visiting with friends.  Chet's business manager lives in Nashville and we loved getting to see him and his family!  They have two boys about the same age as our girls.

We had some time one evening, so we walked around the hotel taking pictures since the girls were dressed alike.  This is my new favorite picture!

We are glad to be back home and are getting ready for our next big trip!

Seven Months

Miss Olivia is seven months old today!  This year is going so fast!  She has such a sweet and fun personality!  Her hair has grown a ton these last few weeks and is getting thick.  It is a dark, strawberry blonde color and I think she sometimes has the temper to go with it!  

Olivia is eating almost everything I give her.  Fruits, vegetables, oatmeal.  Her doctor said we can try her on meats soon, so we'll see how that goes.

Olivia wants to be on the move!  She is sitting on her own, rolling and scooting everywhere.  She recently started pulling up on her hands and knees.  Mostly she rocks back and forth, but sometimes those hands and knees move.

She is still a Mama's girl and is very selective about who she lets hold her.  We are definitely into the teething stage which means lots of drool(which causes the excema breakouts on her sweet face).  Love you, sweet girl!
