Last year we started a new tradition of getting together with family for a week long Easter vacation. We spent our first “annual reunion” on the shore in North Carolina, so this year we decided to head back to our Midwestern roots and spend the week visiting with family in Ohio. It’s been ten years since I left the state and three since both Heshan and I and Steph and David last visited, so the week held more good memories than the camera could capture. We carpooled, brunched, sewed, rifled through our mother’s basement, flipped through photo albums, and tried our best to stall time as much as possible. Heshan and I have only been home a few days, and I’m already making plans to go back. Below is a brief round up of photos from our trip (edited with Aviary, my new favorite photo editing app).
