We went to visit my sister, Emily, in Arlington this week and had a blast. The kids are getting so much easier to travel with, so everything went smoother than I expected. When we got there, Em [also known as Aunt Mi-Mi] got the kids their own suitcases, fully equipped with wheels. Jude brought the suitcase EVERYWHERE.
We spent a lot of time driving. Here's a pic, totally unprompted, of the kids holding hands in the car.
We went to the mall and met a fellow JOHer adopting from Taiwan. This was so fun! She was great and I enjoyed hearing about her journey and learning from her. The mall had a giant ice skating rink, a play area (where the kids played for 2 hours!!) and the topper was the carousel.
Em and Jude played a lot together and when we got home, after 5 hours in the car, Jude cried saying he "just wanted to go back to Aunt Mi-Mi's!" She's one hip aunty!
