30 June 2011

Boy did it feel good to see this familiar white crown of hair when we pulled into my in-laws driveway yesterday afternoon. I missed this kid waaaay more than I expected and I suspect it will be a while before I release him from this perma-mommy-snuggle I've got him in. Man is he a special kid.

Another benefit of visiting Ry's parents in Michigan is getting to visit his sister's girls who live there in town. Remember when baby Zara and Hazel first met (they're 2 weeks apart, but they didn't meet until they were 4 months old)? Now they're both 1 and toddling around G&G's house like the busy little bees that they are.

I'm not sure how present I'll be over the next couple of days, what with all the summering we have to do in this perfect Michigan weather.

Just know that we're having a lovely time,

and that Granddad & Groovy are beside themselves with the joy of having all of their grandkids all in one place!

Happy last day of June, friends!

I love that your kids call their grandparents Granddad & Groovy. So much more creative that Nana & Papa.

Look at all those blue eyes! Chloe has sure grown up in just one year. She looks like a different kid in last year's pictures. I hope you enjoy your Michigan vacation. We had a good time with your little guy camping and here at our house. I really hope he has not started calling you "girl".

Please tell me that you got the cap to match Hazel's swimsuit? Too 1920's ca-uute!!!! They all have the most beautiful blue eyes!

Emily - I wish! They didn't have her size in the store. I found it online but with shipping it was something like $24 and I just couldn't justify it. On Ebay they were selling in the $40's! Bummer.
