Eva Does Wisconsin

While we were in Wisconsin, we enjoyed a nice visit with everyone.  Eva got to spend time with lots of her second cousins. Maxwell and Lorelei (my cousin, Ashley's kids) were the first to greet her as soon as we got off the plane.  We slept at their house the first night where they played with toys, took over the living room, ate dinner, then they took a bath together...

This picture was so meaningful to get because I have one from when we were children doing the same thing!

Eva got lots of attentions from all the family, but of course I didn't have my camera out the whole time because I was having too much fun with my family, too.  I did manage, however, to get one picture of Eva all bundled up with her fleece winter jacket and boots because she endured her first snow fall!

She was really fascinated with the huge snowflakes falling out of the sky.

When all the visiting was done and the snowfall was over it was time to head back home.  Traveling is never much fun, but with Eva it is so much more of a challenge.  Lucky for us, we had an empty seat on the plane both to and from Wisconsin, which gave us a whole row to ourselves.  That definitely helped keep Eva entertained and happy.  I managed to get a pic of her reading one of her books and super fascinated :)

Now we are all home safe and sound and getting ready to host our first Thanksgiving dinner at the house. And, just one day later...Eva will be 1 year old!!!
