More Family Fun!

Within hours after Grandma T left, we had our next set of visitors arrive! Scott's brother, Chris, Auntie Khanh and one-year old Olivia stayed with us for 4 days. It was NON-STOP entertainment having the 3 rascal cousins together. Brooke assumed her motherly role and "babysat" for the babies...until she got sick of them and built a fort behind the couch to hide from them! Will and Olivia checked each other out...sometimes hugging and giving kisses to each other and sometimes whacking each other over the head with various items.

It was so nice to catch up and get the rascals together. It is going to be soooo fun in the summer to have ALL the little cousins together. If these past few days are any indication of how it will be, I CANNOT WAIT!!

Brookey and Olivia--love!

A visit from Grandma T!

Scott's mom came to visit last Saturday and spent Easter and the rest of the week with us! It was great to have her out. She came to church with us on Easter Sunday, we did a whole lot of "girly" projects, including painting Brookey dollhouse! We topped off the week with a wonderful trip to Yountville and had lunch at Michael Chirarello's restaurant, Bottega. We even saw the Chef up close but we were too star-struck to ask him for a photo op! Ridiculous!

She came out at a great time--Buddy really started showing off his walking skills and she was here to witness it all. It was a great visit!!

Finally Walking!!!

Well, Little Buddy finally started to really kick his walking into high gear this week. He's been standing and cruising and taking a few steps here and there for several weeks but now he's all about walking! He has several bruises and a large knot on his head to show off his skills!!
