Katie Holmes, Suri Arrive Back in NYC Following Ohio Visit

Katie Holmes just needed to get away from it all.

The newly single mom -- who filed for divorce from Tom Cruise June 28 before reaching a quickie settlement July 9 -- returned to the Big Apple Tuesday following a weekend trip to her hometown of Toledo, Ohio with Suri. (Holmes, 33, was given primary custody of her six-year-old in the agreement.)

The mommy-daughter duo flew into the Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport on Saturday and then took a car to Holmes' hometown. During their mini-getaway, eyewitnesses spotted the two at the mall and swimming at a local country club's pool.

The youngest of five children, Holmes leaned heavily on her parents, Martin and Kathy Holmes -- from whom she had distanced herself after marrying Cruise -- during her split from the "Rock of Ages" star, 50.

In fact, Martin, an attorney, helped his daughter draft a potential settlement "in which she remains the primary caregiver and Suri lives with her at her apartment in New York," one insider told Us Weekly .

"Her dad was very involved," echoed another source. "I'm so happy he got [Katie] back."
