Trip Back Home (Part 1)

So, this past July 4th holiday, we made the trip back to Michigan (Hubby's hometown, where his mom and brother still resides). This would be Isabel's first debut to a lot of other family members, who have graciously made it a point to come visit. So needless to say, this vacation was highly anticipated in our household.

However, gone are the days where we can toss together two carry-on sized suitcases and be out the door. It would be so much easier if I can just pack Isabel up in a suitcase and be done with it.

However, she didn't think too highly of my idea....ah well...

But she did LOVE her big girl stroller though...she can now people-watch to her heart's content

As we reached the airport, we were all excited about Isabel's first flight (It's also her first trip away, now that I'm thinking about it), even stopping to take a cheesy picture to commemorate the occasion...

But as we went through the motions of getting checked in, we got the dreaded message...

"There has been a change in your flight details. Please see an associate"
Dum dum duummmm...Turns out that our flight was cancelled. Due to weather. And the earliest flight available won't be able to get us to our destination until 10pm the next night.

So....we did what any sane person would do. We drove. All 14 hours and 5 minutes of it (This is just one way, mind you) And guess what? The only "weather" we hit was an itty-bitty storm in eastern Pennslyvannia.

**To be continued**
