A + A : On The Road


Anna and I are off on a girl's weekend. We flew to Charlotte, North Carolina yesterday to visit my sister and niece and attend some of Donna Downey's Inspired event. 

Cousin and sister time is the best.

    Have fun! And Ali? I couldn’t help but notice Anna’s chair. Be careful about putting a big person chair underneath while she’s in it. (can you check your directions?) My son liked to stand up by putting his feet on the ladder back chair. He almost dislodged the seat, falling to the floor! Maybe it’s just my monkey.
    Have fun seeing Donna as well. :)

    Have a wonderful trip! Isn’t it really one of life’s coolest things to be able to hang out as sisters AND as moms? :-)

    We have that same Chicco chair! We used it so much that my mom bought one for her house in Ohio so I didn’t have to transport ours back and forth for visits. :) I’m not sure about the post above that states about the chair underneath…but I do have a memory of the directions stating not to put anything underneath the seat. Of course, if she’s strapped in correctly, its good. :) I was always so scared that the seat would malfunction or something and he’d fall to the ground, so I put a chair under my son too!

    I so loved looking at your little baby girl photos. They are both so beautiful.

    It must be nice to have little girls together and for you sisters to watch them bond. They are so cute, I’m sure they are having a blast. Glad Anna rocked on her airplane ride, hope she does on the way back too. Thanks for sharing.

    Now you got me curious – how has Anna become such a great traveler? I’ve thought about taking my 16 month old on a plane for travel but am not sure how he’d do. ??

    Hi Ali! Hope you have a safe trip. I don’t know what your plans are, but I’d love to meet you in Charlotte. We live here. My family just left from a week’s visit from Oregon. They drove across the entire country to see us. They live outside of Portland. You can contact me via my blog if you like…

    AND I SAW YOU THERE! Yep, this is the fruity woman who almost cried when I saw you that day. I hope you got to some of the workshops … it truly is an ‘inspiring’ event isn’t it?
    Everyone, Ali is just as gracious and warm in person as she appears on this blog. A very nice person.
