We were finally able to meet our new nephew last week! I’ve been on-call since April and unable to leave town save for a few weekend camping trips squeezed in between my summer clients. So when I realized that I had a bit of a lull in October, I decided to block the month off so that we could head down to California for a week.
Although both boys got sick on the trip, the week was still pretty grand. We got to meet Peter, help my oldest niece work on her dance moves for the school play, go trick-or-treating, eat obscene amounts of ice creams with my parents every night, see some of our extended family and just enjoy being together.
Here’s a look at the week in photos…
All in all, it was a great week with family, despite the boys being sick for a portion of the visit. I wish I had remembered to get a few pictures of myself with my family. I’ll have to work on that next time. When you’re the one with the camera, it’s hard to remember sometimes. The highlight was definitely meeting Peter. What a wonderful boy he is and my sister’s family announced that they are going to do it one more time. They have just started the adoption process again (a daunting prospect, to be sure) so who knows who we’ll be meeting next year? I can’t wait to find out.
