Grandma and Grandpa Gray spent February down the hill in PB. We got together with some friends and all went to Legoland and rode some rides! Brandon was a trooper on the big slide :)
We had a brief showing of snow early in our trip to Indiana and we were glad the boys rushed out and built a snowman. Snow did not return until the day after we left… I don’t think it’s let up much since then!
The boys got to visit with Uncle Dan, Jess’s friend Erin and her baby Mallory, and 2nd cousins Noah and Mackenzie. The boys share the love of Batman :)
We got brave and flew with the boys into Indy. This is even before Brandon got sick from the turbulence…
The super boys had fun playing in the backyard.

Happy Birthday Greg!

We somewhat spontaneously decided to take the boys to Disneyland to beat the summer crowds and test the waters with Brandon a few nights away from home. It was a good time – Liam is now tall enough to ride pretty much everything, so Daddy and Liam had blast!
Liam is ready to go! Helping with his suitcase at the hotel…
Cars Land at California Adventure was awesome!
Greg and Liam on the tractor ride…

Brandon enjoyed running around and climbing stairs, at least he was free to get in ;)

Of course blankey had to come with us…
Lots of family fun!
We headed up to Lake Michigan next where we spent the 4th of July, and then stayed through the week to attend cousin Garrett Gray’s wedding. It was a fun time had by all, and we got to see the entire family.
We paid a visit to the Taltree Miniature Railroad, that was pretty cool.
Liam got to drive Grandpa’s golf cart and Great Grandpa Browns skid steer – and that was awesome!
We took our big vacation this summer back to Indiana to celebrate Greg’s birthday, and attend Jess’s cousins’ wedding. First leg was Indianapolis, where we got to see cousins, second cousins, and all the Aunts and Uncles. It was HOT again this year, but we endured. Josh and Brandon had fun together, and we got some good family photos of the group. Enjoy!
We had an exciting April! Grandma and Grandpa Roberts were out visiting over Easter and helped us get the condo ready to sell: 1125Felspar.com
Brandon is now 6 months old and getting bigger every day! Liam and Vanny are hanging out more than ever, even though he moved a few blocks away.
But first, by popular demand here is Liam’s original song, “I Love You Brandon B” 😊
Brandon trying his first bite of rice cereal. He liked it, and pretty much everything else he’s had so far which is:
He loves his toys!
Liam helping to clean his wagon before we put it in the garage
Easter Egg Hunt at Liam’s friend Miles' house. Clever egg hiding going on over there!
Brandon’s 6-Month visit to the doctor. 18 lbs (we think it’s more) and 28 inches long! 95th percentile for that Roberts head too.
Liam and Daddy’s Lego Tower
Brandon is big enough to use the table seat
Brandon’s first visit to the beach to see friends in town for a Wedding. We ALL have at least one child now – most are on #2. Crazy!
Brandon is so much happier now that he can sit and play!
Liam and Van 😊
The Grays were out here for the entire month of February and it flew by. We had busy times with Jess going back to work, Liam in school two days a week, and trying to keep up with growing Brandon! Here are some pics from this year so far.

We are finally getting our pictures up from our trip home to Indiana. It was pretty crazy travelling with two kids, but we enjoyed seeing everyone and meeting Joshua!
Dan and Jimmy came out from Austin to spend time with their nephews. We all went to Disneyland Wednesday and Thursday (Thanksgiving). The kids cooperated most of the time, but we had double meltdowns at Thanksgiving dinner, so that unfortunately is not documented. We appreciate the Uncles humoring Greg and I as we enjoyed a few rides together at Disneyland. It was insanely crowded, which was not what we expected, but we still had a good time.

At least we had good weather :)
Here are a few random pictures of our Brandon man. He is the gassiest Roberts in this household, and eats all the time. He’s sleeping pretty well at night, but we’re still trying to get everything else figured out. He’s almost 2 months old!
Brandon’s First Bath. This happened while Grandma Gray was still here. No complaints in the bath yet!

One of his many goofy looks
We get lots of smiles now. I’ve yet to capture one on camera. This is my attempt.
