A couple of weeks ago Lily got a chance to meet some of her family and we had a blast and of course there are pictures to prove it. What kind of blogger and new mom would I be if there weren’t?
Lily got to meet her Grandparents on her Daddy’s side and her Aunt and two cousins. For right now Lily is the youngest and only girl on that side of the family, so everyone was really excited to meet her. Ok they probably would have been just as excited to meet her even if she wasn’t the first or only girl, but you know what I mean.
It was really nice to have them here because it gave us an excuse to do the touristy thing. We live in a very beautiful area and don’t every really enjoy it. So this was great.
Some of the highlights:
We went to the park that’s about a half mile from our house. Its a great walk and we need to do it more often.
This is Lily with her Grandpa David and Grandma Rita
I’m really irritated, I can’t find a single park around here with baby swings. This is one reason why we don’t go to the park more often, there’s nothing for her to do yet.
But the boys had a blast. Brendan is 10 and Jude is 2.
We went to breakfast at our favorite place, The Buffalo Cafe.
Then we walked through downtown Whitefish and it just happen to be Huckleberry Days so they had lots of booths set up in the park and Jude and Brendan got to look at the trains.
After looking around downtown we drove up to the ski resort, Big Mountain and took the gondola to the summit. Of course I waited 12 years to do this so it was a cold (42 at the top) and foggy day in August and there was NOTHING to see but fog. But I did get some good pictures of Lily with her Daddy and Aunt Christy.
We spent a lot of time just hanging around the house talking and enjoying each others company too.
Since I don’t know how to do a photo-lite post I’m stopping here for now.
Part two will include the day we decided to drive across the whole state accidentally. Or maybe it just seemed like it since I get car sick and have a baby that hates the car. There will be lots more pretty pictures.
