We had a great weekend!

We had a really nice weekend! We saw Aunt Chris, Uncle Scott, cousins Megan, Katie and Amanda and Mr. and Mrs McKeel. We do not get to see them very often because of the distance between us, so it was great to see everyone.

The 3 cousins had a good time with Jack. Amanda shared her toys, and Megan and Katie followed him around everywhere he went and were excellent babysitters! We would really like to see them more often, I think the kids would really enjoy each other. Mr. and Mrs. McKeel have been extremely supportive of Jack and his adoption. They actually had a picture of him on the fridge - which kind of teared me up a bit. They also treated us to lunch at a pretty cool place (thanks!) that had a lot of history behind it. Bill is a history nerd so he loved the story and has mentioned it several times since.

On the way home, we had promised Jackson a trip to Build a Bear. He loved it! He picked out a monkey and a Washington Capitals hockey outfit. Since he brought the monkey home, he has carried it everywhere. Long term rewards now = Build a Bear outfits for monkey (yeah, his name is monkey)!


  1. He is so adorable! He reminds me alot of our little guy, Lorenzo, with the hair and eyes. Thanks for visiting our blog. Lorenzo is from Baby Hospital #4 which is near the Vlad Inn.

  2. Great pictures! Glad you had a great weekend! By the way....I love monkeys especially ones dressed in hockey gear. Although it should be Chicago Blackhawks stuff #88 Patrick Kane, the cutie!!!

  3. Thanks again for driving all that way to see us and Scott's parents. We really appreciate the time you put into that afternoon. It was great seeing all 3 of you and my girls adore Jack! We wish we were all closer too - you could get lots of breaks with our girls around!
