Tour de Bebe Continued

Our trip continued from Hamilton, Ohio to Rossville, IN to visit Ryan and Carolyn, Luke's sister and her husband.  We went to HuHot, a Mongolian Grill restaurant, that night for dinner.  I'm learning that it's a LOT harder to go out to eat with a baby.  I was a little stressed during that part of the trip, trying to get Bronson to go to sleep, but we still had a great time.  We spent the next day hanging out at their new house and playing with the dogs.  We LOVED seeing Laika again!  She is happy and thriving there with their dog, Sean.
 We then drove up to Warsaw, IN to spend a day with Luke's parents.  They were excited to see all the changes in Bronson from when they last saw him a few weeks before.  They had the grandparents over for dinner that night, so that Grandpa Lindemuth and Hal could see Bronson for the first time.  It was a fun meeting for everyone.
Scrippy was very jealous and moved right onto Grandpa's lap.

We then drove to Springboro, OH with Luke's parents for a Wheeler family reunion over the weekend.  We had a great time meeting all the cousins and hanging out in the heat.  Bronson got passed around to everybody.  I hardly held him the whole weekend.  :)  They had music, golfing, lots of food, and a refreshing pool that all the kids tackled.  The guys even got a game of basketball going young guys against old guys.  It was Luke's first time on the "Old Guys" team.  And the Old Guys won 3 out of 3! (may have helped that 25 was the cut off between old and young guys :)

We then drove to my Grandma Hanna's in Oblong, IL on the 4th of July.  We spent the night there and visited with her most of the next day.  She has moved in with her sister Eileen, so it was fun to also get to know Aunt Eileen.  It seems like she is very good for Grandma.  They had ongoing jokes, teasing each other about who did more work around the house.  They enjoyed playing with Bronson, and we had a good time catching up.  She even dug out some old baby pictures of my dad.  Bronson definitely has some resemblance. (I think his ears stick out just like Dad's did.) 

Next, we drove to St Louis, MO to my other Grandma's.  It was about a 3 hour drive through Illinois country.  While there, we went to the St Louis zoo.  It was blazing hot that day with super high humidity.  Poor Bronson was soaked with sweat like the rest of us, but he was great.  Aunt JoAnn and Aunt Jo went with us along with most of my cousins.  We of course had to get a picture of the cousins with the gorilla.  We saw the sea lion show and saw as many animals as we could before everyone was exhausted.  Later that night, everyone came over and the uncles were able to see Bronson.
