One of the main reasons we wanted to move out West was so we would be able to see family more often.  So a couple of weeks ago I suggested to Elliott that we take a somewhat impromptu trip to California so Henry could finally meet the rest of his aunts, uncles, and cousins on my side of the family.  Plus, we wanted to meet Hugh's wife, Emily (they got married the weekend I was due with Henry, and he is 13 months now!)
It was lots of fun, Henry was a big hit, and we totally approve of Emily.  Great choice Hugh!  :-)

 Can you tell I took the two pictures above?  I have no idea what I am doing with Elliott's camera. White balance?  What's that???

 Did you know Emma got glasses?  Her dream has finally come true!

Such a fun weekend.  I am SO grateful we live near family now!
