Grandparents, Aunts and Cousins! Oh my!

(and a couple of uncles as well!)

Last weekend we flew to Washington to spend some time with family.  It was a very fast trip for us.  We flew in Friday night after Steve got off of work and flew out Sunday around lunchtime.  Due to the short time frame of our visit, we didn’t get to see everyone this time.  But we had a great visit while we were there.

The Dolans are moving to Haiti to be the Directors of Widow and Orphan Care in Fond Des Negres, Haiti.  (You can find out more on their blog.)  The family had a going-away party for them (which was the primary reason for our visit).

Aunt Lori brought supplies to make cards.  Claire and her Aunt Kasey and Aunt Dawn spent a few hours making cards.IMG_8766



Cale fell in love with Gramps’ camera.IMG_8772

Gramps took us out to breakfast and bought Aunt Kasey and Claire hot chocolate.  Yummy!IMG_8783

After breakfast, we stopped by Gramps’ house, and Claire got to climb up into Gramps’ truck.IMG_2611

We told her to climb up and pull the string.  She was surprised at what happened!
