Our trip so far...

We held this baby...


Cale held him for a while and it was definitely a sweeeeet moment (more pics at end of post!). The baby was sleeping and Cale would softly touch his face. I saw Cale’s face change after a while and asked if he was doing ok to which he said, “Eh, I don’t want to hold him anymore. I’m bored.” I wasn’t disappointed in the slightest about needing to take a turn! After just a few minutes, baby Levi started to wake up, his eyes opened and he started to move his hands. As soon as he did, Cale leaned over and was suddenly captured once again! :)

He played these…


You may remember that Cale has been learning drums with our worship leader at church. We haven’t been great at being consistent, but life has been a bit…uh…crazy. So far he’s been learning on a drum pad, but while hanging with friends he got right on the set! He had fun, but afterwards he did say that he wasn’t good. I know he’ll get there though!

We had some late night fun…


Boys are crazy…


Girls are sweet…


Ha!



Friends…


We’re staying with Tony and Hannah while we’re here. It’s been so great! Tony is really good with Cale and has been having some guy time with him. We’ve also been playing a lot of Crazy 8’s! Hannah and I have been getting in some good girl talk too and well, that’s just needed!

We had lunch with Melissa…



…and even though I spilt water on her she still loves me.

We spent some much needed time with our adopted NY family…



About a month after moving to NY, we met them and instantly loved them. Through the years that we were here, we spent holidays with them, had game nights, and spent time together as if they were family. We have been so blessed to have them in our lives!

It’s been wonderful so far! The time change hasn’t been an issue for Cale because he’s not adjusting himself and I’m not making him. He stays up late and sleeps in…sounds like a vacation to me! Haha! I was thinking that it might be easier for him to adjust when we get back home if I don’t fight it all now.

Here are some pictures that were taken Thursday night by the Hoppers…
