A September Post For Good Measure

In late August/early September, summer actually came to Seattle!  Just in time for us to spend Labor Day weekend in Massachusetts for a friend's wedding!  Evelyn was really excited to fly on an airplane again.  As I mentioned earlier, my parents came to town in July and Evelyn was devastated when we dropped them off at the airport (mostly because she realized she wasn't going on an airplane with them).  This happened to her again in August when my brother, cousin Jeff, and his wife Kate came to visit and then left on an airplane to head home, without Evelyn.  Luckily, when Matt, Jeff and Kate left, Evelyn only had to wait two days to get on an airplane herself.  So at least her devastation was short lived!
Ready for flight!
Evelyn had a terrific time with Grammie and Grandpa in Massachusetts.  We had a fabulous time at my friend Jess' wedding!  Seeing family and spending time with friends from home was such a gift.  We were only sorry the trip was so short.

 When we came home, we took Evelyn's crib rail down once and for all.  As you may recall, we tried this back when she was only 21 months old and she just wasn't ready.  This time was MUCH, MUCH easier and permanent!

Evelyn also had her first experience at the Puyallup Fair with our friends Anna and Gus.  She 
thoroughly enjoyed the rides and the sites!  

At the end of the month, we took a much needed trip back to Michigan to spend some quality time with Joe's family and a few close friends.  Joe's grandfather passed away on September 21, so it was really special to be home with family to celebrate Grandpa's long life and to honor him.  Evelyn had fun reconnecting with her cousins and galavanting in her grandparents' yard (she went apple picking, watched the cows, and even enjoyed a campfire).  We also had a nice time visiting with our dear friends, the Dykstra's, who recently moved back to Michigan after having lived in Washington.
