|All ready to go!|
We left home once Steve was done with work and I had managed to get the car loaded up very tetris-like which made my hubby proud. Frankie didn't nap much during the day so he crashed not long after we got going. On the way there we managed to only have two stops - both times to feed and change the little man. It must be known that one of the stops was at a Dunkin' Donuts.

Introducing Frankie to Steve's Grandma and Grandpa Bach was priceless. They were so enamored with him. Steve's Grandma was in love and enjoyed singing and holding him. Don't worry, she did relinquish her hold and gave him to Steve's Grandpa - again, he was smitten. He couldn't take his eyes off of him. Both days we were at their house with Frankie, they just loved him up! It is pretty apparent in the photos below how Frankie stole their hearts.
Steve and I left Frankie with Nancy for a few hours and went to meet up with a couple of his friends from when he went to college in Green Bay. We wanted to go to their wedding in August but Frankie decided to be born on their wedding day. :-)

Our drive home was fairly uneventful, except for a little detour due to a closed on-ramp. The trusty navigator, me, managed to get us back to the interstate with only a little additional time added. We made it home at a decent hour which was great and all of us were happy to sleep in our own beds.
Frankie was great for the entire trip! He loved meeting everyone and didn't mind getting passed around. His schedule was a little off but what can you expect from a 7 week old on his first road trip. Steve and I enjoyed seeing all the family and can't wait to see them again!
Full disclosure - there may be A LOT of photos:
