Here's Des and Zoe chilling with thier cousin Jon and his great girlfriend Kristen. Des sat there for 20+ minutes scarfing down those goldfish crackers and his tender stomach ultimately rejected them and up they came! Yuck!
Des loves Grandma's big bathtub. Nate turned on the jets and those bubbles exploded (nearly double in size from this pic). I decide to join him! (not pictured)
The weather was so nice that we drove to a large playground to relive some of our missed New York outdoor activities. This playground was fantastic!! We had the best time enjoying the sunshine with Des (while Zoe was napping back at the house with G&G Jones.)
Mom (that's me) likes these posing shots. Lets smile and show how much fun we're having! Which is literally how it often goes since I'm the one most frequently behind the camera. Every once in a while I hand it over for Nate to document that I'm a part of the family activities too!
Here's another one of those shots -- turned out well I think. I just don't trust Nate with candids. He hasn't the patience, or it's all a joke and he trys to capture my more rotund areas. All these pics are taken with my new Christmas camera -- thanks Mom&Dad -- I've been a camera-less blogger for many months now. Heidi's boyfriend Chris has been loaning me his over these past months. He's an angel!
Ultimately, the time had come to return home to NYC -- Here we are at the airport stretching out and rummaging for snacks. The 2.5 hour drive to the airport was quite pleasant, Grandpa somehow managed to lull both babes to sleep. Whew!
