Fast asleep in the big bed, the morning we left.
Showing off her all-American style, in front of my parents' house.
Mr. M made me get in the picture, too ...
For some reason, this is probably my favorite photo of my parents and Little Miss -- it was taken at the Hutchinson Zoo.
Feeding koi at the zoo ... Maile absolutely loved this!
Walking on "the moon" with Neil Armstrong, in front of the Kansas Cosmosphere.
Astronaut Maile. She takes her job very, very seriously.
Baby Girl, asleep in my childhood bed. There is an incredible family history to this bed, but heirloom status aside, there is something quite surreal about seeing your babe in Dreamland, in the bed you slept in as a girl.
Here are a few photos of our time in Kansas. We had so much fun on this last little trip to visit Maile's Marmee and Papa in their current house, as they'll be making their home in Iowa in just a couple of weeks! Maile is at an age where she loves interacting with people ... Big improvement from when she would cry every time her Marmee tried to hold her. And, of course, our dogs are always a big fan of seeing their "Uncle" Shadow (my parents' Boykin Spaniel). So, we were glad to bring them with us.
Please forgive the fact that these photos were all taken with my iPhone. Somehow, in the early morning hours of our departure from home, I managed to leave my beloved Canon. I won't do it again! But I still got some pics ... Always a good thing ...
