Easter Vacation: Family Visit

Bob and I spent the Easter weekend in Alexandria, Virginia. We used to go to Virginia a few times a year to visit Bob’s brother and our sister-in-law. We have missed those trips to Virginia, since John and Dorothy moved to Hawaii. We miss visiting with John and Dorothy; however it is still possible to get our Virginia “fix” by visiting my cousin, Vernon, and his family.

When we visited Vernon and Wendy in May 2011, their family had recently been increased by 1. Their son, Aiden, was born on May 14. We were among the first to meet baby Aiden.

This is my favorite photograph of Aiden from our May 2011 visit.

Fast forward 11 months, and here are the photographs that I took of Aiden this year.

Aiden was fascinated with Bob’s mustache and beard!

I LOVE Aiden’s baby blue eyes!

In addition to visiting with Vernon and family at his home, we accompanied the three of them to Wendy’s mother’s house on Saturday, April 7th, for the Seder — the focal point of the Jewish Passover celebration. It was nice to see Wendy’s mother and sister again, as the last time we saw them was at Vernon and Wendy’s wedding in October 2009. A book entitled “30 Minute Seder” provided for a memorable Seder Passover that both engaged and entertained all participants.

Memorial Day Visit with Cousins

We visited with my cousins Vernon, Wendy and Aiden for several hours on Memorial Day.

We hadn’t seen Vernon and Wendy since their wedding in October 2009, so there was much to catch up on. Even though we have stayed in touch via telephone calls and Facebook, I feel face-to-face conversations are the most rewarding. We had a very good visit. As is usually the case when good times are being had, the time went by much too quickly.

Vernon and Wendy have a new son. Aiden was born on May 14th. We were honored to be among the first to meet him.

New Cousin

I received the most joyous news today. My cousins Vernon and Wendy are the proud parents of a baby boy, their first child. Vernon and Wendy’s son weighed 6 lbs 4.5 oz and was 19 3/4 in long at birth. Congratulations Vernon and Wendy!
