|O-H-I-O with my mama the fair!|
Despite a few tears at the airport, it went really well!
We were there to celebrate my Grandma Mary's 80th birthday and while I knew I'd be heading to Ohio solo, Uka was originally supposed to join me the following day but he had to cancel his trip last minute. The good news is that he was able to step away from his meetings and met me and the kids at the airport. That's the hardest part: getting all the gear + the kids into the airport and checking in. Babywearing Grayson on my back definitely helps and once I drop off the luggage, stroller and Nia's booster seat I'm all set (we rent a car seat for Grayson at our destination when we travel!).
We arrived Thursday night and got settled into the hotel after dinner at Chik-fil-A. I always plan to read and do other leisurely things in the hotel, but I always end up falling asleep!

Here's a little recap video I made using Magisto:
That night I met up with my cousin Grace and her adorable 3 boys for pizza. It had been so hot at the fair that it was nice to chill out and catch up while the kids watched a movie. Hooray for cousin time!

I was able to snag this shot in the hotel room though:
