Having family around is the best. We have had fun playing with my brother's family this week and having all of our crazy kids together!
was on call three times this week so he barely saw our nieces and nephews that are visiting, which was too bad. But he'll have more time with them this next week. He's tired. But he did have Saturday off, and we hiked to a huge waterfall with my brother's fam and it was a blast. He also made us a fire Saturday night and we had fun having hot dogs and s'mores.
had so much fun having visitors and playing with all these kiddos this week. We went to Sequoia National Park, played at some local parks, picked oranges at an orchard nearby, went on walks, and just had fun watching all these kiddos play together. I woke up to beautiful flowers and yummy treats on Friday for our fifth anniversary and I don't even know when Michael managed to get those or surprise me with them. I feel so lucky to be married to him. He's a great husband and dad and friend.
loves having cousins around! He wakes up asking right away where cousins are, and he has had fun feeling like a big kid lately. He has eaten lunch outside with them each day and feels big being with just the kids. He is way more adventurous when there are lots of kids around.
slept without being swaddled for the first time yesterday and he basically looked like a teenager. How is he getting so big so fast? He's still not too sure about solid food. He has been a terrible sleeper at night, but he has been good at sleeping on the go all week during our full days.
We're excited for another week to play with family!
