On this trip we were able to meet our nephew Nathan. The boys had fun playing with Aunt Julie and Uncle Greg.
We shared a typical FHE puppet story on gratitude.
We gathered at a studio for a family portrait. My favorite exchange from that activity:
Photographer: "Do you hit your little brother?"
Weston: "Not any more."
Originally we weren't going to make the trip because of MBA projects and tests with imminent due dates; however, Wayne was promised the use of the computer and time to study, so off we went. It was great being able to spend time with family and friends, and as far as I recollect, our little vacation didn't do irreparable damage to Wayne's grades.

|One of the favorite toys - found at Grandma's house and not at home - was the Lite Brite.|
|Five cute cousins - Nathan, Brett, Weston, David, Brad|
On this trip Aunt Julie took Weston and David to see "The Little Mermaid" - their first experience with a movie theater. We also spent some time at the Seattle Aquarium and visited family and friends.
|The boys enjoyed playing in the Bassett's tree house while the parents visited.|
Earlier in the month, Wayne attended a conference in Las Vegas and brought home shirts for the boys. Grandma's stairs made a great place to try corralling them for a picture.
|Jeff wasn't too thrilled with the idea.|
A highlight of the trip was a visit to the Seattle Children's Museum. Lots of fun memories!
Up to seven cute cousins!

|Thought you might enjoy seeing our old apartment from a baby's perspective.|
Although there aren't any pictures of the actual Thanksgiving dinner, I'm sure it was delicious and the company was wonderful. We loved being able to spend time with Grandma and Grandpa; they are always great hosts. On this trip, however, we also did some exploring.

|It's always good to find a playground. Bonus points if there are four empty swings!|
