We're Back

Quick overview of the weekend...

Pulled out of our driveway at 5:30am on Friday morning.

Drove 11 hours to Oxford, OH

Friday night, we attended pre-wedding festivities for my cousin, Adriane's wedding.

Saturday morning, took the kids to roam around Miami University's campus (where I went to graduate school) and then around uptown Oxford, OH.

4pm, Adriane and Drew were married in a lovely ceremony and we had a GREAT time. I love my extended family and hope we can all get together at the beach again this summer.

Woke up at 7am this morning, packed up and attended the "going away" breakfast for the out of town guests.
Pulled out of Oxford, OH at 9:15am this morning.

Drove 11 hours back to Baltimore, MD

Pulled into our driveway at 8:15pm this evening.

Whew. I have been dreading this weekend of driving for months now even though I was greatly looking forward to the wedding and festivities. However, the 11 hours of driving went really well since my parents also drove and took turns having one of my older kids with them. I'd almost say it was pleasant. Or at least as pleasant as 11 hours in the car can be. Thank goodness for loving grandparents, that's all I have to say.

More stories and photos later.....
