Family Vacation Photo Dump Pt. 2

Our second family trip this summer was a big one, so I'm going to do the photos in two posts.

Alex's grandparents retired to a farm in southeastern Ohio, and every summer since before Alex was born his entire family has gone to Grandma and Grandpa's farm. Alex's grandparents have both passed away and one of his brothers now lives at the family farm with his wife. And everyone still comes out every summer. That's Alex's parents, his 6 siblings, 5 spouses, and 14 nieces and nephews. And did I mention there's only one shower?!

Our route took us through Madison, WI, where we stayed with my oldest childhood friend, Chicago, where we stayed with my cousin and his family, and finally out to St. Clairsville, OH. We got to meet our nephew Aaron for the first time and see other family members we haven't seen since Christmas. Johnny loved being around so many other kids every single day.  He even mastered the names of many of his cousins.

The time we spend with all of Alex's family always makes us wish we all lived a little closer together. But since we don't we make the most of what togetherness we can get.


  1. St. Clairsville! That's not far from where my husband grew up! (His parents live about 30 mins out of Steubenville) Looks like you guys had a great time (although one shower would have been tough!)

  2. The photo of you and your baby girl! Gasp!
