This week we took the kids to Long Island. The girls got to meet their great grandparents, Nona and Poppy, for the first time and the boys got to see them again for the first time in a very long time.
I was asked to speak at Hofstra University and convinced Steve that it’d be a great excuse to trek out the entire family to New York to see his family. On Monday morning Steve, Paty, the boys, girls, and I all hoped in the minivan and drove 4 hours from Baltimore to Long Island.
We also got to have dinner with Uncle Chuck and Stephen. It was so nice to see everyone, it had been way too long!
It was the very first time the boys slept in a hotel room… but not the girls. This might be the first time the girls had a “first” before the boys had their “first” equivalent. Besides the yummy hot breakfast, the boys were really excited about the pool… or maybe it was just me. We took the girls swimming for the first time. I didn’t get any pictures of them in the water but I did get some of them in their swimsuits. It was adorable.
Nathan also took some great photos. He is a really good photographer
Check out Emily “planking” in the background on this one. She is so strong!
Wish we were there to celebrate. Hopefully we can see you all soon!
We love you.
Olivia is the first to get a green/yellow poopy! -things grandma says
I’m pretty spoiled. I haven’t had to change a diaper yet. I can’t imagine recovering from a csection without an incredible support system like I have.
Grandma and Grandpa Seacat were just here staying with us as they head back to Montana (and then Seattle) for their cross country road trip. We were lucky enough to get them for a whole week. Unfortunately both of them were feeling pretty sick when they got here. Grandpa recovered in the basement and was quarantined to his dinner spot on the kitchen counter. Luckily none of the DeLucas are sick *knockOnWood*.
The boys fell in love with them quick as usual. Always asking in the morning if Grandma was still downstairs. Anthony made sure to grab grandma’s hand and “march” with her around the room with his new Mickey Stick. Nathan made everyone make-believe “rice cookies”.
Their trip went by way too fast. Lucky for us (unlucky for them) they were here during our 3 day potty training marathon (more later) which helped a ton with the boys.
Travel home safely. We’re going to miss you guys! We love you!
Thank you Grandma for coming to Baltimore to help when Ann got her wisdom teeth out in February! The boys are missing you!
Missing your bath time scrubs, grandma.
Loving our hotwheels Christmas present!
Thank you Grandma and Grandpa DeLuca!
Nathan and Anthony love their Grandma DeLuca. Thanks for coming to visit us this week!
