We moved to WI from AZ 2.5 years ago and haven't been back to visit family since. We were initially talking about visiting next Christmas, but I was thinking that if we went at the end of Aug. (I am due Aug. 1st), that it would work well because the kids would still be out of school, I would still be on maternity leave, DHs school would still be out, and it might be easier and cheaper to travel in Aug than Dec. Of course, this is all provided everything goes well with the delivery and the baby is healthy. By then it will be three years since we have seen everyone. The kids could see family and the family could meet the new baby. We could get him/her baptized in our old church with family there. It might be a little crazy, but I was also thinking that a newborn is actually probably easier to travel with than an older baby that doesn't want to sit still. What do you all think?
