Winter Break Part 2

We took one extra week off of school and went up to Washington to see Greg's family. They were able to finally meet Ethan and I'm pretty sure they loved him! I think he was held pretty much the entire week.

The kids were so excited to play in the snow with their uncles and cousins. They spent one day riding bikes on the bike path (after the snow was shoveled). Brayden and Tawny really liked using the big snow shovel. Another day when there was more snow they made snow angels and rode on the sled behind the 4-wheeler. Luckily Elaine still has tons of snow clothes for the kids to wear, so they were nice and warm.

They were both having so much fun...

...until Tawny got cold. She melted into a little pile of sad, crying, snot-nosed three-year old.

But after a little rest on the couch she went back out for round two and had so much fun.

It was great to see everyone again. As always, the trip didn't feel quite long enough. At least we didn't drive this time. We didn't think 24 hours in the car with 3 little kids sounded too great, so we decided to fly this time. I was a little nervous with Brayden's peanut allergies (okay, I was super nervous), but we were careful, and everything went fine. It was Brayden and Tawny's first time on an airplane and they loved the whole experience.

These pictures are priceless. Thank you for sharing. I wish we could have been there to meet all of the children. I can't remember when I saw Gregory last and I am pretty sure I have never met Adena in person either. I guess it doesn't matter I love you all anyway. Take care. Love, Aunt Sherri Uncle Bryan and family
