Phew, so we are finally back from our travels. We left Wednesday around 12 to head to MI to spend the holiday with my family. It is about a ten hour drive for us, which was made a bit longer by the frequent stops that pregnancy requires - hehehe.
While we were there, our schedule was crazy, but it was great to see so many members of our family. We had Thanksgiving dinner with Michael's extended family for the first time (and his parents came down from Ironwood, so we were happy to see them, too). From there, we headed to my grandparents' house, which is the scene of the traditional Creagh family Thanksgiving meal. My family gave me a baby shower, which was wonderful (will post pics as soon as I get a chance to upload them), and we got to see everyone that was still around after dinner.
Friday morning, we had breakfast with Mom, Thanksgiving dinner with Dad and a baby shower that my step-sisters put on for me (again, pics to come).
Saturday, we met Michael's parents for breakfast, had Thanksgiving dinner with Mom (Chinese Thanksgiving - a new tradition, I think) and then went to Dad's to say bye.
We got up at 5:30 this morning to hit the road, hoping to beat the traffic. Well, we did, until the Pennsylvania border, and just as always, the turnpike was just horrendously backed up, so we took a detour. Well, what should have taken us about 4 hours to get through, in the end took us almost 7 . . . needless to say, 12 hours of driving was not our idea of a fun Sunday afternoon. But, we are home, the cat is thrilled to see us, and we are filled with food and lots of good memories of yet another holiday!
Can't wait to see what's in store next!
