So it seems that I can only remember to write in this blog every six months. Well so be it. At least I remember it that often. So what has happened in the last 6 months?? Well when you have a two year old life is always exciting!!
In September, we decided to go see Neuschwanstein castle. Before our trip could even begin, we received a call from the day care provider saying that Milana had fallen and sliced her eyelid open. This was our first trip to the emergency room. We got to the ER and the doctor said she was going to need stitches. Since the cut was on her eye, she had to have the old fashioned needle and thread stitches and couldn't get the glue stitches. It took 6 people including myself and David to hold her down on the table while the doctor stitched up her eye. It was just as traumatic for mom and dad as it was for her. Needless to say, we were ready to get the heck out of there.
Two days later we packed up the car and drove about 4 hours to the castle for a mini-vacation. The I-pad was a definite help when traveling in the car to keep the little one occupied. We stayed in a beautiful cabin by the lake. The next day we spent most of the day walking around, talking pictures and touring the outside of the castle. They gave tours of the inside of the castle but since Milana is so young we decided to for go that part. We can come back and tour it again when she is older. Despite the little one having stitches, all seemed to be fine and we all had a great time.
For the Christmas holiday, we decided to head to David's parents. This meant a 9 hour flight to the states and we were thankful that we had the I-pad as entertainment for her on the trip. We went shopping, saw holiday lights, went to a zoo, and spent lots of time outdoors in the warmer weather. Milana got her first hair cut. My parents even came for a few days to visit. I think Milana really enjoyed it all.
We aren't really sure what this year is going to bring as far as adventures. It depends on when Milana's daycare has vacation. Hopefully we will be able to see more of Europe.
