okay, so it took longer than a couple of days.

But here are some pictures from the trip!

Mary, eating an apple at the airport:

and unhappy on the airplane, trying to ignore the airplane by watching “Singin’ in the Rain”:

At my parents’ house, Mary explored many animals and outdoor activities–especially soccer and cats.

My two babies:

She hung out with aunt Melissa–here with Moses the cat:

Anna got in on the soccer action:

My children were held, hugged, and carried about by many relatives.

Eddie, Wesley, Nathan, and Julie:

Katie and Wesley (the manliness of his legwarmers was much maligned):

Sue and Wesley:

Linda and Wesley–I find this giggly picture of Wesley heartstoppingly cute.

We hung out with Linda and her fiance, Jacob, of whom I approve.

Mary and Melissa colored eggs. Mary LOVED it. Look at the uncontrollable joy on her face. Obviously, she is too young to realize that coloring eggs is soul-suckingly boring. Melissa gets all kinds of auntly bonus points for realizing that Mary would love it.

Sorry, Lis–apparently you’re not actually in any of these photos. She was there.

I got a haircut. It was much needed. Before:

Then, Mary got some weird fever-inducing virus. Then she gave it to me. Here she is–a sad puppy.

She recovered to bake cookies with Grandma Cal:

When we got home, they were so glad to see Daddy. It was adorable.

    I love your haircut! And it looks like Mary got one, too. Such stylish ladies, these Moreland-McHale’s (in my head you’re hyphenated).
