Calla's Big Adventure

Calla and I had a big adventure over the weekend. We flew to Des Moines, Iowa to visit Calla's great-grandpa. We flew out at 6:30 am on Friday and had a very long day. Our flight to Minneapolis, MN was uneventful. We had a short layover and then boarded our flight to Des Moines, a short 45 minutes. However, about 30 minutes into the flight we were told that the airport was closed due to a snow storm. After circling the airport for 30 minutes we were diverted to Cedar Rapids, Iowa. We then were loaded onto a bus for a short 1 1/2 bus ride to the Des Moines airport. However, the bus ride turned into a 4 1/2 hour ride due to poor visibility and very bad road conditions. Everyone on the bus was very nice and Calla was amazing. She slept a lot during the day and was generally in a happy mood most of the time. She never ceases to amaze me. Calla and I were very happy to finally arrive at grandpa's house. Here are a few pictures of our visit.

Great-grandpa and Calla enjoying some time on the floor. Calla gave her great-grandpa lots and lots of smiles and laughs. She loved shaking her head "no" at him after he smiled at her.
Calla's great-grandpa makes the best apple crisp and Calla got to sample some of it. Most of it made it in her mouth and lots hit the floor.

Calla's uncle Tom from Ohio also came for a visit. We all had a wonderful time hanging out.

Grandpa Rex and Grandma Cindy's Visit

We just had a great visit with the Grandparents from Ohio. They got to spend a lot if time hanging out with Calla and we all had a good time. Here are some pics from their visit and a few other shots of Calla being silly. We start baby swim class tomorrow which should be a lot of fun! We hope to get some good underwater photos from the class.

Let's go people, I am all dressed up and waiting on you!

Showing off for the Gandparents.

It has been a long week at daycare, time for a little couch time!

Nothing like a bottle from Grandma.

I love my pretzels!


Even though I have nothing to brush, it is fun to brush my gums with dad in the morning.

Gotta do the pose, I think I am getting good at it! Work the camera people, work it!
