Labor Day weekend we decided to FINALLY make a trip to introduce Gavin to my sweet family. Oh how I wish we lived closer, but the distance makes the trips all the more special.
Here are some of my favorites:
|King of the king bed. |
Thinks he is royal already.
|He is loved so well by his Auntie Tracy!|
She is one of the godly women I hope to model motherhood after!
|He loved meeting his great aunt Joleen. I think the feelings were mutual.|
I spent so much of my childhood with her and she is still sweet, loving, and GREAT with kids!
|Instant bond. Love you Aunt Joleen!|
|One of my heros - my Uncle Verny|
|This picture bring tears. Gavin just sat in his lap, staring into his eyes. |
He is usually so squirmy.
Not in this moment - he was still, just taking it all in.
These are the moments money can't buy. Love you Uncle Verny!
|Spending time with his beautiful cousin, Megan. Isn't she just gorgeous!|
Look at that tan. In my dreams I look like that!
Gavin was introduced to so many new people and in my attempts to spend time with them too, I didn't get as many pictures as I would have liked to. But here are some more:
|How wonderful to be back in Husker land!|
We were blessed to watch some Husker football with uncle Rod & aunt Kathy!
|The first time Gavin met Amanda he was 2 days old. |
How things have changed! Love you Mandy - so glad we got to see you!
|Cuddle time with his Great Aunt Deanna!|
I love her smile - such a sweet woman of God!
|Someone loved Cassidy's pink shirt - like slobbered ALL over it.|
Sorry Cass! So great to see you - miss you!
|The newly weds. We were surprised by their impromptu trip to see us too!|
You completed our trip!
|Buddies? I think so!|
|Our gracious hosts - Rod & Kathy.|
Thanks so much for making us feel so comfortable and loved!
I think Jason & I put on a pound or two!
|Konked out in the hotel. Trip - complete!|
We had a wonderful trip and can't wait to go back! Love you Nebraska/Kansas family!
