We're Back!

Praise God! We made it back with no glitches last night at about 8:30. We had a great trip! Sophie really did amazingly well for sleeping in 3 different places and missing many naps. She especially loved the boardwalk in Ocean City, where she watched people all night, ate ice cream, and flirted with some 10-year-old boys. Here are some pics from our trip.

Sophie at my cousin Ralph's wedding; she's showing us how old she is!

Sophie dancing with my dad:

This one below is a little blurry, but I couldn't pass it up. Sophie wanted so badly to help her grandad push the cart in the hotel. So cute!

The whole family the morning after the wedding (although whoever took the picture somehow managed to leave out my uncle Eddie on the far right; sorry Ed!):

On Sunday we drove to the beach house. On the way there, we stopped in Annapolis, MD to meet up with my dear, dear friend Sarah. She and I went to graduate school together, and then she and her hubby moved to Dover, Delaware. It had been two years since I'd seen her, and she had never met Sophie. It was so good for my heart to spend an hour catching up with her in person!! We love you, Sarah (and you too, Philip!)!!

Monday morning was our trip to the beach. Sophie wasn't so sure about the (**cold!!**) water, but she spent some time checking it out. She LOVED the sand and had a blast playing in it.

Here are me and Sophie with my dad and my uncle Ralph:

We're glad to be home; it was great to sleep in our beds again last night! We close on our house this afternoon at 2! God is so good!
