Hello again! Sorry for the long absence, things have been insanely busy here for all of July. I can finally breathe again. Since I'm still waiting on other people for pictures for some of the early vacation events, I'm going to try posting the last few weeks in reverse chronological order. This post is pictures from the last day of our trip to Virgina. We went to Virgina so I could present some of my work at the Animal Behavior Conference, and on the way home we stopped and visited a friend of mine from grad school and her family. She relocated after grad school and has since had two children, the oldest of which is Natalie and she is about 7 months older than Colin, her second is Henry and he is not yet 4 months old. Here are the massive amounts of pictures I took in a 24 hr period. The kids just kept giving really great photo ops so I just kept snapping away.
A close up of Colin playing on the slide. You wouldn't know we were on the last day of a two week trek from his attitude! He is always up for an adventure.
Natalie being super cute in the fire truck. She was a pro at smiling for the camera.
Both Natalie and Colin loved the swings. Abbe and I hung back in the shade and let the dads do all the hard work pushing the kids.
This is what Henry did the entire time we were at the playground. He is probably one of the easiest babies I've ever been around. The more I see other babies the more I realize that Colin was not an easy baby at all.
The kids and their dads. I'm not in any of the pictures because as usual, I was behind the camera.
A few steps from getting out, Natalie got a wet bum as well. She stood up too fast to catch it on camera. She did well having wet pants, but was clearly uncomfortable.
Colin attempting to put Henry's pacifier in. Henry wasn't all that interested in it but was a good sport about it. Colin did very well with baby Henry and is clearly more ready than I am for a sibling!
Moments before we left, kids in pj's making faces through a glass door is just too cute!
One last funny face. Then it was into the car and drive home. Colin was really a very good traveler for being gone so long. We spent upwards of 30 hrs plus in the car over the course of two weeks and I would say he may have cried/fussed for an hour total so I have no complaints.
