Family Vacation 2013

Last week Monday we loaded up the girls and the back of the van and headed off on the first leg of our family vacation 2013. We started off by spending the night at Mr. Cherry's parents' house. (While we could have made the entire trip in one day, it was much easier to break it up into two pieces.) We hung out there until the next afternoon and then headed off for our final destination, Oshkosh, WI.
Mr. Cherry's oldest brother and his family moved to Oshkosh 5 years ago and we still hadn't ever been there to visit them. If you don't know, Oshkosh is home to the EAA (Experimental Aircraft Association). And every summer EAA hosts the biggest gathering in the country of all things planes called AirVenture. Mr. Cherry is an aircraft buff and has always wanted to attend. We decided this would be our year.
While Mr. Cherry was off AirVenturing, the girls and I got to hang out with the rest of the family. (Minus Uncle N who works for a company at the airport and was there working hard all week long.) Here is a glimpse of our week in pictures:

Lots of cousin snuggling and bonding time.

A morning at the zoo!

Lots of playground time. Including this great huge wooden playground called Little Oshkosh.

A stop at the Rippin' Good Cookie Outlet. Complete with samples and purchases to bring home!
The girls and I did attend one afternoon airshow. While Peachy liked the planes, Cream LOVED them.
A ride on the park and rec train.
Watching cousin H at baseball practice.

We were able to attend the world premiere of the Disney Movie Planes. They estimate that there were 15,000 people there! No wonder it was hard to see the screen.
After all of that fun we headed off for Mr. Cherry's parents' again. There we were able to see two more aunts and two more cousins! We all had a wonderful trip!! Thank you so much N, J, E, H, and L!!! We loved it!

Um, when did Peachy get so big? She looks like such a big girl here all of a sudden!
