Spring Break

Sunday after church we drove to Papa and Babushka's house. This was Henry's first road trip. He did great in the car and at their house. He loved the toys and all the new things he could touch. We brought the pack-n-play thinking he would be comfortable sleeping in his bed but he was really scared to go to sleep. It makes sense; strange house, strange smells, strange room... why would he feel comfortable just because his bed was the same? We were able comfort him and get him to sleep both nights by sleeping with us. My in-laws were great. They conformed to Henry's eating, napping and sleeping schedule. Really, who wants to eat dinner at 5PM besides Henry?

Earlier in the week I bought brand new white shirts for everyone. I had high hopes of getting a family picture in Babushka's flower garden. I thought we could take pictures Monday after Henry's nap. On Sunday, a quick check of the weather indicated rain and then snow flurries on Monday and Tuesday. New plan-take pictures as soon as we arrive. No time to change into our new white shirts!

We have our favorite college "gear" on.

Yesterday, Igor and I colored eggs.

This morning we had an in Easter Egg Hunt inside where it was nice and warm. Henry and Igor loved searching for the eggs.

This afternoon we returned home without Igor. He is currently on vacation at Papa and Babushka's house. There were snow flurries today so Rob and I loaded the car while Henry and Igor played inside. As soon as Igor realized we were packing the car he ran outside yelling, "Don't forget Henry!" We all had to laugh.
