I seriously have the BEST travelers.
These two are so chill and don't ask for much when we are in the car for 10+ hours.
The girls and I took off Friday and spent a week in Ohio.
Ammon (my little brother) was graduating high school and my dad was having heart surgery.
A few things we always do when we visit Ohio:
cousin time with Katelyn and Olivia
Weldon's Ice Cream
Carly gets sick
|I did have to move Carly's car seat for a bit because she couldn't sleep.|
Emma kept pulling at her blanket.
|Cousin Katelyn helping Emma put her shoes on.|
|It's tradition at graduation parties to sign the barn.|
Aunt Dana helped Carly sign her name and then she helped me sign Emma's.
|Cousins! Their first time seeing each other. They are so fun together.|
|Cousin Ana and Emma found a mud puddle during the graduation party.|
I told myself to embrace the mess and not care about the girls getting dirty.
It was pooring rain during the whole party.
|We made it through graduation! Woot woot!|
|They love Aunt Dana!|
|Pasta bar at a graduation party was a hit!|
|Five siblings out of seven were together!|
(Franki is on her mission and Korbin is in Idaho).
Anton, Dana, Ammon the graduate, me, and Clayt
|With Uncle Leo!|
|My mom is on the school board and gets to hand out some of the diplomas. |
While handing Ammon his, he kissed her on the cheek! So cute.
|Where we spent a lot of our time. By the dogs.|
|On Monday, we went to Hometown Hotdog!|
|Carly loved sitting with Uncle Leo. She kept rubbing his facial hair.|
|Weldon's Ice Cream!|
|This is how we do Weldon's. |
The three of us shared a banana split milkshake. It was delicious.
|Being three is tough.|
|Can you see her hair??!|
|"Mom I touch my bum"|
|Typical Pitchforth girl photo.|
One running away and the other being silly.
|They are obsessed with strollers and the dogs.|
|Haha both their faces. Emma's tongue cracks me up.|
|Digging in Papa's garden.|
|They had a youth temple trip while we were there. Clayt and I were able to go and help.|
After the temple we took Ammon to Chick-fil-a for the first time.
Oma and Papa watched a movie with the girls and put them to bed late, but they both slept in!
|Perks of sleeping in the same room as the girls, I get to see how they sleep!|
Emma is always curled up in a ball.
Carly is all sprawled out and moves a ton.
|Sick and upset Carly. Poor girl.|
She always gets sick when we go to Oma and Papa's house.
Makes for a rough 24 hours and lots of snuggles.
|How sick Carly took a nap on the couch. Poor girl.|
She woke up so sweaty and super upset.
Good thing I was giving Emma a bath at the time
and she did not want Oma to comfort her.
|Zoo day! It was perfect weather! The sun was shining and the wind was blowing.|
|The four girls.|
|Carly wanted to see two animals. Elephants and Giraffes.|
|Emma trying to get a few inches closer.|
|I love this picture!|
Emma's cute piggy tails and the giraffes in the background.
|Uncle Clayt pushed Carly in the stroller and listened to her orders.|
She ended up on his shoulders a few times.
|These parks at rest areas are a life savor!!!!|
We stopped four times on our way home. Twice to only play on the slides!
