Our First Getaway

On Friday, Emme and I packed our bags and headed to Albany to spend with our good friends Michele and her son and Nic and her son; both from Vietnam. We were joined by our dear friend Lisa and other friends on Saturday. Our fun filled weekend included a trip to the firehouse, Adirondack Animal Land, dinner out, a BBQ and wonderful hospitality. During the wrestling portion of the Vietnam/China olympics, China won but not without a slight boo-boo. We we treated to yummy treats and Michele's cooking. What I learned this weekend is that my daughter is extremely adaptable. Home 6 weeks she slept in a strange house, bed and took a bath with 2 other kids. She tried new foods and really seemed to enjoy the "babies" as much as the adults. It was our first big car ride of three hours and she did great. On the way home she even let me know when she wanted to get out for a stretch. The moral of the weekend was never underestimate the amusement of an air mattress.

Whoa! A naked pic of my kid in cyberspace. The pics are all great and I can't wait till the next time.

P.S. Jammer is really excited to see himself here with the "kids". He can't stop jabbering about both of them.
