Hanging out with my cousin Sophia

My cousin Sophia who lives in London came to visit for a few weeks. You guys, I used to change this little girl's diapers when she was a baby and here she is today a grown up going to college and everything. We saw her in November when we visited England. She got to hang out with Bean and it's nice to have her here because she gets to hang out with Tman and Jbird too.

Tman was totally into making faces with us and I just love this picture of us with Sophia
While we were hanging out with Sophia the other day, Jbird fell asleep with my brothers and I couldn't resist taking this picture of them :)
My mom, the boys and I hanging out with Sophia one night. Young kids make faces for everything these days (I am starting to sound like my mother)
Sophia's only request was to have pancakes before she left so we took her to Silver Diner. My brother J joined us for some fun time and I was impressed at how well the boys did. We don't take them out to restaurant much anymore because it is always a production but I was so happy that this time they behaved well for their auntie

Tman and Sophia are so adorable together

 I love my family, every little event turns into a memorable event :)

  After Silver Diner we went to visit my aunt and had such a great time
 Picture in the mirror with my Beanie man, look at that sweet face
 Sophia got so much love from Bean who is learning to kiss without opening his mouth by the way
Family time is totally the best time
Sophia leaves in two days, I wish she could stay longer. We've had so much fun hanging out with Sophia the past two weeks, we definitely have to do that more often. Hope you are all having a great weekend.

Bean goes to England

I had been meaning to post about Bean's trip to England last November but things got so busy during the holiday season that I never got a chance. Now that we are finally caught up with things and life is moving by at a much slower pace, it's finally time to take a trip down memory lane and relive that awesome trip.

Hubby and I were going to his BFF's wedding in London last November and we decided to take Bean with us. It was an great opportunity to introduce Bean to his English family. We made the most out of that trip by attempting to meet with everyone while we were there. I traveled with my grandma who was going to spend a few months with my aunt who lives in London.

Here we are at the airport getting ready to board. I love these two so much
 We made it to England, YAY. Me and my happy baby

Check out my baby hanging out in a pub for the first time, only in England
We had such an awesome trip visiting hubby's family in England. We wish we had more time to visit extended family. I guess we'll just have to come back to England so that we can do that. The next time we go we'll have all 3 boys, it's going to be pretty crazy. Bean's trip to England was a great success, I loved taking this trip down memory lane.
