So on August 26th, I did...
Evelyn ready for the airplane ride
Lillian's first airplane trip!
She loves the Boba...mostly because she can easily chew on the side of it.
Killing some time in the Houston airport with some Doc McStuffins
(we had a very tired girl...we had to leave our house at 4:30am and she hadn't slept yet)
Still no sleeping - too much excitement!
In the Kansas City airport waiting our turn for the family bathroom.
On the bus to the rental car lot
About 4.3 seconds after we started driving from Kansas City to Columbia...
Yay - signs of FALL!!!
Pretty leaves...I miss this!!!
Evelyn wasn't thrilled that Mommy was going to be gone all day.
Evelyn loved playing outside (with no mosquitoes in November!)
Lots of fun with 9 kiddos!
She got to experience playing with boys toys - bat cave, anyone?
Lillian got lots of snuggles
And loved playing with Uncle Mike and Woody!
They enjoyed lunch at Fudruckers
And peaceful afternoon naps...
I got home from my interview around 5pm that night and was ready to crash! The weeks of preparation leading up to it, combined with the stress of traveling with two little ones and a full-day interview had crept up on me!
Grammie making Lillian smile and laugh
Here he is doing some last minute research before we went out on our hunt!
Elvis is alive.
Love this picture.
Uncle Mike and Daddy created this fun game for Evelyn...
No children - or air mattresses - were harmed in the making of this video
Mommy had to set aside her OCD a little and let Evelyn just paint!
Our finished products...Evelyn's handprint and my Mizzou paw...hoping it would commemorate the beginning of the next chapter in our lives!
Lillian's bathtub for the trip...who doesn't love a naked baby in the kitchen sink?
Evelyn watching a movie while Mommy got ready for church
(she was up early with the roosters)
Now this is a football watching couch...
Go broncos!!It was a fast, and slightly stressful, trip...but we found out that the job was everything I thought it was going to be, and more. And we found a house that we love. We had some great travelers, too.
Sometimes you get stuck in a chair and your Mom takes pictures instead of helping you...
Killing some time during our 3 hour layover in Houston...after #1 did not take a nap on the first flight - which was during nap time.
"You see this, baby sister?"
It took all of about 2 minutes for this to happen...
Now to find a comfortable way to sit so that I don't wake her!
