Lyla's House

Saturday morning we left home for a quick trip to Michigan. My sister and her family live in Michigan, and we hadn't been down to see them in a while. My sister, Kelly works mostly weekends, but she had Saturday off....it was the perfect opportunity to go for a visit and combine some spring shopping.

I love to get to the US to shop for children's clothes. The deals are out there waiting to be found. I did great for all three kids, they now all have new t shirts, shorts, and Jillian has some new sundresses.



BUT....the highlight of course, was the visit with Uncle Ryan, Aunt Kelly and Cousin Lyla.







The kids get over-excited to visit, they think they have hit the big time to get the opportunity to visit another country.

Jillian and Lyla are going to be great friends. Sunday morning when we got up, I had Lyla sitting on my lap, and Jill was sitting beside me, she put her arm around Lyla's shoulder. Talk about sweet. Lyla cried in the night and Jillian heard her, Jillian was trying to soothe her by saying Lyla sweet, and Lyla cute...not that Lyla could hear her.

Thanks for letting us come for a visit, Uncle Ryan, Aunt Kelly and Lyla. I know our visit turns your world upside down, and you are such good sports about it. We are looking forward to Lyla's first birthday in two weeks!!!!!

Glad you guys had a nice visit. We will be visiting theCousins this coming weekend and we are all looking forward to it. It isn't another country though. Although I think we will be hitting your country sometime this summer - Niagara Falls, MarineLand and the Hockey Hall of Fame are calling. :)

My son gets all crazy when we go over to Quebec. He thinks we've gone overseas or something. TOo funny.

Hi,

Did mommie get anything for herself? Lyla is darling. How wonderful for the girls to have each other. I still love my cousins and wish I could see more of them.

Sounds like a great weekend.
