I don't share videos often enough...

I've said before that Evelyn is in love with Mr. Dyson (our vacuum cleaner).  Here's a recent video of Evelyn helping Joe vacuum.  Her laughter is undeniable evidence that she adores her daddy and Mr. Dyson! :)

Heading back to Massachusetts!

"Another day, another plane ride," should be our motto in this household, and not because Joe works for Boeing.  It seems we're always packing up for our next family visit.  Don't get me wrong, this isn't a bad thing!  Quite the contrary, we love seeing our families.  However, when you travel as much as we do, packing suitcases starts to seem as ordinary as washing dishes!  That's okay for now; it is just reality for us!

Today, I pulled out the suitcases to prepare for our next adventure to Massachusetts to see my family.  Sadly, Joe will have to stay home and work, so just Evelyn and I will be traveling.  As an aside...We wish that Joe could be with us, but we understand that someone has to work to pay the bills.  Thank you, Joe, for working so hard to give me and Evelyn this wonderful chance to be with family again!  We love you!

Anyway, I pulled the suitcases out to our main room and opened the bigger suitcase on the couch, preparing to fill it.  I ran into our bedroom to grab some of my clothes and came back to see Evelyn on the couch, standing inside the suitcase, right at the edge and giggling to her hearts content.  I grabbed the camera and tried to capture the moment... here are a few photos.  I guess packing suitcases will never get dull for Evelyn... she always finds ways to make it exciting.  Below are some other photos of Evelyn in suitcases from past packing episodes!
