Mini Duggar family reunion! Jill, Derick and baby Israel Dillard flew home to Arkansas on Friday to visit family, taking a break from their mission trip in Central America.


The family snapped a photo on the plane (and apparently baby Israel looks like an easygoing traveler)...

Traveling! :-) #lovemyfamily @derickdillard

At the airport gate, Baby Israel also seems fairly willing to part from mama's arms to give grandma Michelle a hug.

Excited to be back with family for the weekend! #IsraelLovesGrandma

Yet the visit was brief: By Sunday, photos show that the family was back on a plane -- this time with their younger sister Joy in tow.

Traveling back to Central America with these two! #joyduggar #carlinbates

Granted, a two-day trip home may seem short. But hey, you can't just stop your work and your life so grandma can visit your baby, right?

And although it's unclear how long Joy will be sticking around, if I were her I'd milk this trip for all it's worth. That way she can tour the sights of Central America, bond with her nephew, and maybe catch the mission bug, too.
