The past 2 weeks have been quite the whirlwind! We went to Pittsburgh last weekend to visit my family - we celebrated C's birthday and niece's baptism, then drove up immediately after her baptism, to Cleveland for X's baptism 3 hours later! We drove home later that night and arrived home shortly after 11.... DH drove the whole trip. I love him. :)
C was quite the trooper! When we were driving back home finally (a 6 hour trip), he got a little fussy after he woke up from his nap, but reading and toys kept him occupied.
Photos from that weekend:

This past weekend, DH was on retreat, and C and I drove back up to Pittsburgh for a longer visit with my family. My sis, R, had a choir concert as well. She's singing in a newly formed group under the direction of my HS choir teacher - who is pretty much the best teacher I ever had in school. He's retiring this year - but going to teach for a year at a local college. It was SO great to see him. And the choir was great! A few close friends of mine - 2 girls who sang for my wedding (who I met taking piano lessons as a kid) are also in the group and it was fun to see them as well! And, my first piano teacher was also in attendance. What a flashback to all those piano recitals in middle school and high school. :) C and I also spent some time with my Grandma, who told us last week that she would like to be called "Nana" by her great-grandchildren. I took a bunch of photos of the 2 of them - so sweet!!

|I LOVE this one!!!|
|I'll chew on this a while.|
My godmother came over to visit for a bit too. She and C had fun with blocks:
|A tower of blocks... hmm...|
|I don't think so!|
|Hee, hee!!! I win!!|
|This is fun... but I'm still hanging on for dear life!|
Happy Monday, friends!
