Summer trip Part 1

Mary and I went on a long (16 days) road trip this summer.  It was a great trip overall.  Of course there were some ups and downs, but a great trip nonetheless!
UPS - Mary got to visit with her Nonnie!
Mary loved showing her the book she made that shows a lot of her work from Pre-K!  I can't believe in September, Mary will go to school full days and be in Kindergarten!
my brother - Jonathan, me, sister - Ellyde, cousin - Greg
DOWN - We had to attend the funeral of my grandmother.
UPS - Mary got to meet her Uncle Jonathan for the first time!  (FINALLY!)  And while we were in the area, we went to Navy Pier and the Children's Museum.  That was fun for her.  Mary enjoyed watching TV shows on her iPad in the car during all driving we did.
Mary lost a tooth in the hotel the first night of vacation.
Mary is a good traveler.  We drove from our home in New York State to a hotel in Ohio.  From there we went to Chicago area.  We spent about a week vising family there.  Then we drove to St. Louis and spent the night.  Our destination was Kansas City for the Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita Support, Inc. Conference.

More on that next time, but here is a picture of a friend that Mary met.  :)
