First Long Day Trip

Today, I took all my boys on our first longer trip down to see my parents (about 45 minutes away). My mom had invited me to the Mother & Daughter Luncheon at their church and of course wanted to show off her newest grandsons. Grandpa watched Josiah during the meal and the twins slept most of the time until after lunch when we brought them out to show the folks there.

As you can see, we got some nice pictures from the trip as well including a fun shot of all the grandsons with Grandma and Grandpa. If you look closely you will see that the twins are wearing very special shirts that say "I Love My Grandpa" and "I Love my Grandma." Josiah wasn't as willing to pose for this picture, but this one of him making a funny face was the closest I could get to a smile! Daniel was super tired in this photo and afterward he slept for 4 hours! He didn't get much sleep on the way over because Josiah kept bothering him the whole way there. And so it begins, the brother torture, I guess! Caleb fussed off and on the whole trip back and didn't really sleep again until we got home when Daddy wrapped him up properly for sleeping. Don't you know it is impossible to sleep without being in our baby burrito mode?

Here are a couple of other photos from the event that turned out nicely. Josiah had a steady diet of strawberries and dessert at the luncheon. Apparently, the variety of salads there weren't Josiah-friendly. They were super good though! Maybe one day he will try some new foods!
