Our small Siuta family decided to make a trip out East as we haven't been out there since we moved this past June. We decided the perfect weekend would be the annual Siuta Superbowl Extravaganza! Not only did this allow two big Giants fans (Matt and his dad) to watch the big game together, but it also gave us the opportunity to see the other Siuta clan (Thad, Andrea, Nicole and Tesia). I absolutely loved growing up with a big family and lots of cousins, so I get really excited when Morgan gets a chance to play with her cousins, which means this was a great weekend all around!
We headed up to Caroline & Tommy's place on Thursday evening. I consider myself incredibly lucky as I view both of my sisters (sister & sister-in-law) as my best friends, so I really love any time I can spend with either of them. After a quiet night talking, a middle of the night tylenol run to Meijer (for my ear infection), and an early wake-up, we were ready for our first flight with Morgan since the Ireland/Wales trip this past summer. I must admit it is a LOT easier traveling with a very young child as they are more likely to sleep on the plane. Morgan did eventually fall asleep on the flight out, but it took a lot of encouragement!
We finally arrived safely and only slightly less mentally stable (Matt is unflappable so this was really only an issue for me). Our first stop was to Ellen's daycare, Leesburg Open Arms, to brighten her day and to allow Nain to show off the greatest first granddaughter ever (minus me of course)!
After a pretty uneventful afternoon where Morgan got herself acquanted with all of the toys, we headed to dinner where we met up with Michelle, Thad, Andrea, Nicole and Tesia. When we got back the girls were able to play together for a little bit before heading up to bed.
Saturday brought a trip to the Urgent Care Clinic to confirm an ear infection and pink eye for me and pink eye for Morgan (you can see at least one of her eyes is slightly swollen in the pics below). Once we got back from the clinic, Morgan and Tesia were able to focus on playing! We presented Tesia with an early birthday present and the girls were so excited to show off their matching shoes!
