At the beginning of June, we hopped a plane to visit Grandma and Grandpa Takala in Ohio.  I worried for weeks about how Emily would do on the trip.  Fortunately, she did really well, even after a long wait to get through security and a delayed flight.  Our girl truly is just a wonderful baby.  Her temperament is so sweet and although she is VERY strong willed, she can also be very easy-going.    Lucky for us, she decided to behave on both flights.  The trip there started out a bit rough with about 15 minutes of fussing during take-off, but she fell asleep pretty quickly.  She slept for about 45 minutes and after that, she played with Daddy and watched The Backyardigans on my iPad, which has been a saving grace for us on SO many occasions. 

We had a great time visiting with Grandma and Grandpa.  Usually we are only there at Christmas, so it was really nice to visit without the added stress of the holidays.  We spent lots of time on the screened-in porch, playing outside on the blanket and in the swing, eating yummy food, and laughing at our sweet girl.  G&G bought the swing as a special gift for Emily and she couldn't have been happier.  We had so much fun and we are sad not to live closer.  Hopefully before too long they will be living much closer to us.

We love you, Grandma and Grandpa!
