Trip to Fairfield

We took a 4-day weekend trip to Fairfield last week and we really enjoyed staying at Great Grandpa "Duck" and Great Grandmother Rickard’s house. I was pleasantly surprised at how well Emily did. She usually doesn’t sleep well if she’s not in her own bed. However she did great, she kept her usual sleep schedule. The only problem we had was the first night when we all tried to sleep in the same room. She woke up around 1 a.m. and she wanted to play. She kept singing her ABC's, counting and talking to herself. I was trying to let her put herself back to sleep but when she saw us I knew it wouldn’t happen. She played by herself for about an hour but then she kept saying, "Hi Mommy" and waving at me so I just couldn’t ignore her anymore. So since she was up I took her to use the potty-chair and when I got back to the room Rob had moved all our pillows and sheets to the smaller room so we could get some sleep. After that we all slept really well.

While we were there we got to visit with both of Rob’s aunts and one of his uncles. We also went to church with Grandmother and Grandpa. Emily just walked right in the nursery like she owned the place and had lots of fun playing with all cool toys they had.

Sitting with Aunt Sandra and Broady.

Playing the "ready go" game with Grandpa Duckie and Daddy. (She'll run to Daddy, turn around and say "ready go" then she'll run to Grandpa and do the same thing again. She could do this all day.)

Playing with all the pretty things in Grandmother's yard.
