We had such a wonderful Easter trip with my husband's family. It went by incredibly fast and I miss Virginia all over again. Ready for a bunch of photos from our trip?
We're lucky our Felix girl is a pretty great flyer (knock on wood!). What a big difference it is to travel alone with a baby then with your husband. Husband is such a better knee bouncer ;). 

Chip's sister Mintcy, her husband Tom and their beautiful babes (Nora whose 3 and Caleb who is 6) drove up from Durham, NC to spend Easter weekend with us. You guys. It doesn't get much better than watching the cousins all together. Each time either one said, "Felix" or when Nora gave the baby a smooch and a hug... oh my heart. 

And of course, there is nothing like seeing your parents love on your baby.
Felix's little hand on the rocker! (the same rocker Chip's Mom used when he was a baby)

Us Maxham girls on Easter morning before Church. My mother-in-law got Felix and Nora matching dresses. Poor Nora was dealing with an ear ache that she wasn't up for taking photos :( 
Our sweet dog-sitter snapped this photo of our Stella Bear, Maverick, and Bubbles and sent it to us with a Happy Easter message. Love Bubbles' smile! (I can never get them to pose for me)

Family photo. Felix was too busy looking for the Easter Bunny!

With Aunt Mintcy.

Tom, Mintcy, and Nora drove home Monday but Caleb wanted to stay over until we left on Wens. I'm so glad he did! I love his expression above. 
Felix loved all the green and tall trees around his parent's beautiful home. 

Husband rocking the cookie monster pajama pants I gave him for Christmas.

I truly got lucky marrying into my husband's family. I love them so much and always feel so at home around them. How I wish we didn't live so far away from both of our families.

I love watching my nieces and nephews together. Cousins always make the best friends!

Chip's parent's house is gorgeous! It's exactly how I imagine forest-surrounded homes to be in America!

I know you hear this all the time but Felix is so ridiculously good looking. I hope you have 1001 more babies just because the world needs attractive people who will also grow up to have big hearts and intelligent minds. <-this comment is kind of off the wall, but I blame exhaustion; basically, Felix is so cute!
