The boys were excited to see their new baby cousin Isla. It was great to see all the kids together at Grandma and Grandpas house. Grandma’s house may have finally reached capacity – we are getting to big for the picture in the living room :)
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 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!
The second leg of our trip was spent in Noblesville with the Roberts. We all had fun during our Iron Chef East vs. West Coast showdown where we made pomegranate-themed dishes for Grandma and Grandpa. Liam loved spending time with Sefanie, Reina (he got pretty close) and Uncle Map :) We also got to visit Christy and Jackson for a bit before we left town. It was a great trip!
The family flew down to West Palm Beach, FLA to visit Jess’s g-parents at their vacation home(s) on Nettles Island.
Nettles is an interesting little “island” just north of West Palm Beach.
Here are some shots around the square.
Well we had a busy trip back to Indiana for Liam's first Christmas, where the weather ranged from -13 and icy to 65 and sunny! Liam met tons of relatives, aunts, uncles, great-aunts, great-uncles, second and third cousins, and of course the grandparents! We all felt a little under the weather from all of our travels, but had a great time seeing family and friends.
Well, we are getting ready to head home to Indiana for the Holidays! We made the rounds to the Ocean Beach and Pacific Beach Christmas parades the past few weekends. Liam wasn't too interested :) But he sure seems to be growing up these past few weeks - he is holding his head up better, and is getting much more vocal. He can even pose and do the "Al Bundy" for his daddy, Greg is so proud. He'll be meeting the rest of the family soon!
