Vacation: Part I

We have had a VERY busy past few weeks. After 3 weeks, 3 states, over 150 tubs of baby food, and seeing almost every member of our extended family, I think we have earned the title of "Marathon Vacationers".
We started off the journey flying to Colorado. Austin was a trooper on the plane. The flight attendant would come and hold Austin any chance she got, and she even made him a rattle out of a drink cup and pretzels. He flirted with all of the ladies on the flight including the flight attendants. Right now I'm grateful that he's such a flirt because it gives me a chance to use the bathroom etc. I'm sure I'll change my mind in 15 years.
We enjoyed seeing all of our family!
We especially enjoyed seeing cousin Sophie! Our, Becky and my, little munchkins did quite a big together and it was fun for them...but even more fun for the parents! Austin and Sophie are still about the same size, but Sophie is MUCH more developed. We were asked a few times if they were twins. I wonder if people think Austin is the slow twin? :)
Sorry I didn't get one of both of the kids smiling. The only one I had was of nakee babies- and I don't think I want that one floating around on the Internet.
I love that my parents now live so close to a park!
I'm VERY partial, but I think this little guy is really cute!
This little guy was quite the model. I was probably less than 10 feet away from him when I took this picture.
Since the summers are so hot and humid here, not to mention filled with pesky pests, we enjoyed spending as much time outside as possible. I'm not sure if Austin really liked touching the grass, but it kept him from wandering off. Did I mention that he's crawling now?

He's growing up and is quite photogenic :) I'm sad we missed seeing you while you were in CO. We've been here all summer. Where was water slide picture taken? It looks like a place Zach would really like to go.

I can't believe how big he seems every time I look at your blog. How are we going to arrange a meeting for the two young ones? And by that I mean I just really want to see you guys!!!
Tim and I want to go on a cruise with you. When's good for your guys? We were thinking after Christmas would be PERFECT... if only you were going to Georgia for Christmas.

He is so darling! And getting so big! I love that last picture! So I went to the dentist the other day and was totally thinking of you as I was getting my teeth cleaned :)

Hey Mandy - just wanted to be sure you got the email we've tried sending a couple of times. If you didn't, give us a call. Thanks again for the help.
