Out and about!

We took a trip to Tracy, California this past week to visit John's 2nd cousin...it was more like going to see our aunt and uncle and the kiddo's grandma and grandpa. Our babies just loved them and warmed up to them very quickly, learning to say Grandma and Grandpa, (it was more like mommom and daddad)it was sooo cute! I had a wonderful break, and John did too as they apmpered us by helping taking care of the kids. It was a good thing because I got the kid's cold and it hit me hard, I'm still hacking at nite and feeling terrible. They sent us to our rooms to take naps, breaks from diapers, 2 extra bodies help so much with taking care of our axtive kiddos. They were amazing for their age, John said he hasn't see such spry flexible people at their age in his practice. They walk at the same clip we do(they walk everywhere, downtown, to the grocery store, they can pick up our heavy son with no difficulty! It was such a gift. I also got to see Yosemite for the first time, WOW!!!! Then we went to the pumpkin patch, I've never been to a pumpkin patch in 90 degree weather, it was different to say the least. Now we are back home in the beautiful fall weather, I know I'm weird, can't wait for the snow!

Hi Gen,
Somehow I missed this post earlier. You were in my stomping grounds! : ) We also go to that pumpkin patch! Our house is only about 20-25 minutes North of Tracy.
I am glad you got to see one of California's jewels, Yosemite. It is beautiful year round.
The kids are as adorable as ever. I am so happy Phoebe has recovered so well.
