For most of my life, my immediate family has remained fairly local, never really straying more than an hour or so from our hometown(s). I’ve come to realize that this is often not the case for many people. With this realization comes appreciation – appreciation for the family that is close and appreciation for the visits from the family that is far away. So holds true for my brother-in-law, his wife, and my nephew who live in California (and of course, as you know by now, my sister and her family in the UK). We traveled to meet newborn Baby J back in September and they recently came for a visit this summer. I wanted to share some of these last-minute-let’s-do-a-little-photo-shoot-while-you’re-here images.
Of course I’m biased, but isn’t he a handsome little guy?
Wherever did his good looks come from, you ask?
Can’t. Resist. The. Crinkle. Nose.
Scott and Krista, thanks so much for a great visit. I’m a proud auntie. And happy birthday, little J. In the words of your cousin, I love you all the way to California and back. Mwah!
