This past week, The Great Sosini and I once again embarked on a road trip from Chicago to Nashville. The drive from my house to my sister's house can be made in about 7 hours with no stops, but that is obviously not possible with a toddler in tow. Still, Sosi and I were able to do the drive in about 9 hours. It was a bit of a whirlwind trip-- we drove down to TN on Thursday and drove back to IL on Sunday-- but tons of fun nonetheless!
My sister and I have an unspoken rule when it comes to blogging about our visits: she who blogs first gets to share the cutest pictures. Niki beat me to the blogging punch here, here, and here. But I still wanted to post some pictures here on my blog, too! Here are the rest of the post-worthy pictures:
I have big plans to sneak into my sister's house some night and catnap Rocky Cat.... He is SO HANDSOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Sonia thought seeing a full-size steam engine up close was quite possibly the best part of the entire trip.
Speaking of handsome.... I love my adorable little nephew!!!
Charlotte, you are way too cute.
Sonia was already a huge Uncle Corey fan, but when he created an exciting adventure on which to send our little super kids, he reached official rock star status. Also, I am still blown away by the amazing capes that my sister sewed out of fabric she already had on hand. Sosini loves her creative aunt and uncle!!
Loving the hand-drawn map of the 1st floor of the house! We had to take the map home with us because Sonia was obsessed with it.
Thank you for such a fun visit, Niki, Corey, Charlotte, and Peter! We love you so much!!
