Last weekend we went to Kansas for a wedding. Most of Darren's extended family is there, and we hadn't been back since I was very pregnant with Claire. This was finally Claire's chance to meet the aunts, uncles, cousins and Darren's Grandma.
She was a trooper through the drive (I think the new car seat really helped!), and did well with all the unfamiliar faces. She warmed up to the aunts pretty quickly, but the uncles were another story. I don't think any of them got more than a high 5 all weekend.
The highlight of the weekend for Claire? The reception. Missy has always loved music. It's doesn't matter whether its a catchy commercial or the song from Monday Night Football. Her arms come out and the dancing wiggle starts. That night she danced to everything from Elvis to Lady Gaga. Clairey just wanted to be moving, so we danced!
The day after the wedding we stopped by Grandma's farm to check the cows and get a 4 generation picture before heading home.
We had a great time, and it was nice to get away from home for a little while!
