Last weekend, we drove up to New Jersey to be there at our nieces' baptism. Abigale and Baylee are the sweetest little eight year olds and we are so glad we could be there on their special day.
I love watching the cousins, (and second cousins in this picture) run around together. Getting a good picture of everybody is rough though...because of the running mostly. I have 12 on my phone and this is a compilation of some of them...love this!
James and Tyler are the same age, and they are cut from the same cloth. Tyler spent the night with us in the hotel Saturday night, and my heart almost exploded from the cousin cuteness. The boys had one volume, LOUD. They weren't really trying to yell... they were just TELLING EACH OTHER THINGS LIKE THEY HAD HEADPHONES IN. At one point, Tyler said, "THIS IS THE BEST NIGHT OF MY LIFE. I HAVE HAPPY TEARS!". James asked Ben and I if we could move to New Jersey to be closer to Tyler. So good.
The kids did SO well on the drive. Even if Jonny did wake up at midnight on the way up and unbuckle himself...
On Sunday, (Valentine's Day) we drove to my parents' house in NoVA and stopped for dinner before heading home. They always have delicious, fancy cheeses and breads. AND A WEGMAN'S DESSERT. Be still my heart. We were only there for about an hour, and we were thankful that Mr. and Mrs. Terry let us drop in. Jonny was excited too, clearly.
My sweater would like to wish you all a happy Valentine's Day!
