ok i'm back

Ok, we are back from Michigan. We had a great time meeting our five-week-old niece, Lilly. Here are a few highlights from our trip.

Us looking like parents.


The real parents. This is my brother Charles & his wife Marci with Lilly.


We found a cool stop along the way off exit 156 off 90, west of Cleveland. There was a Barnes & Noble where we had a nice coffee break. There were a lot of shops sectioned off in an outdoor mall area, which looked more like a nice city block. Here's George in front of Urban Outfitters. He loves that place.


A tasty lunch at bd's Mongolian Barbeque. Yum Yum Yum.


Chuck and Marci had some friends nice enough to let us stay at their house while they were gone all weekend. We were hosted by Kitty. Kitty and I became close friends right away.


There's nothing like stopping for dinner at the Cracker Barrel on the way home. Except George didn't know they were going to put bacon on his salad. He had to pick it all out.


Time to get back to normal life. I need to clean this dust-infested house.

You will be the "Cool Aunt" won't you??

She looks adorable and sweet. I am sure you overdosed on baby kisses and baby smell didn't you??

George looks like a super cool dood doing a little shopping.

Doodle George: I always have a pile of celery on my plates. :o)

Lilly has a LOT of hair.

aj, if there had been celery, George would have picked that out too.

seeker, yup, she was born with a lot of hair.

LOVE the pics, Jenn -- so good to see you guys! And I know all about those "looking like parents" photos... ;)

Found your blog via Non-stick Plans.

Great cartoons! My wife says the same thing to me whenever I try to draw her!

Keep up the great work!
