Michigan trip

We just got back home after a week visiting my family in Michigan. We had a great time with my parents, brother, sister-in-law, niece, and grandma. Ben and his cousin Gwen had a lot of fun chasing each other around and giggling hysterically. Here are a few pictures from my first skim through all the ones we took.

Four generations

Ben playing catch with Great-Grandma. He later convinced her to try hula hooping.

Elizabeth checking out flowers in Grammie's garden

Gwen & Elizabeth in the adorable Sesame Street dresses that Jen's mom Dena made. We tried to get a picture of the girls in an armchair by themselves but there were major tears!

Trying out the hula hoop

Yummy, Yucky got read approximately 50 times during the week. It was hilarious to all of the kids. 

Elizabeth convinced Papa to read it again later.
Elizabeth in the rocker her Great-Grandma had as a small girl. She also recommends Good Night, Gorilla for a good laugh.

Ben & Papa playing baseball.

Not pictured: the three minutes between the time that Buddy's Pizza arrived at the table and the time it was cool enough to be eaten, during which she screamed and pointed at the pizza in fury that it was not immediately placed in her mouth.
