Nolan's 1st Trip up North

Ok, so here are some pictures from our amazing visit up north. We spent the first Friday at Kevin's mom's. We enjoyed a chili dinner with them and relaxing in the evening. On Saturday we went to the Mennonite Relief Sale where we ate lots of yummy food (oh the apple fritters!!:)) and ran into lots of friends and family. On Sunday we went to church where we only spent about a total of 15 minutes in the service but Nolan was quite the hit after church meeting lots of our Waterford Mennonite family. During the week we spent a lot of time hanging out at my mom's house. We made little trips out to visit friends and family. One of our trips out was to my cousin Carrie's house where we had lunch and met her son Tyson who was born not even two weeks after Nolan. We were able to take some pictures of the 4 of us and look forward to watching these two little guys grow-up together at family gatherings. Other visits included going to see great grandpa Gingrich, visiting my friend Nichole and her darling children Jackson and Avenlea, Laura Myers and her son Luke (who loves babies and giving them kisses) came by my mom's one afternoon, and having dinner with Mary and Emery (unofficial grandparents). The last weekend we were there was spent celebrating Matt and Erin's wedding. Kevin was the best man so he and I went to the rehearsal dinner on Friday while Nolan stayed at my mom's where he was taken care of by his grandma, great grandma, uncle Jeff and Britta. Saturday was the beautiful wedding. Nolan again stayed at my mom's during the ceremony and then I picked him up to take him to the reception. He did really well during the reception except for the part when he cried all the way through Kevin's speech! :) He slept most of the time even with all the loud music and being passed between friends. On Sunday Kevin (along with some help from others) cooked a wonderful lunch which we shared with Kevin's mom and dad. I believe there were 13 of us (including Nolan) around the table that afternoon. All in all it was a great trip with lots of wonderful memories that of course went by way too quickly.

Tyson and Nolan were not excited about taking more pictures

First time having a bath being put directly into the water (didn't like it at first but he warmed up to it). This is now part of our new nightly routine.

  1. LOVED Nolan's face on the pic of your Four Generations! I also think the pic of him sleeping in the dresser is absolutely priceless. You should blow that one up and frame it!
