The Cables Visit

This past Memorial Day weekend our good dear friends Eric and Jill (you know the ones, the friends who were willing to travel to New Zealand with us, with a 9 month old baby, even when they didn't have any children of their own) came to visit. They brought their daughter, Amelia, (now 8 months old) along for the ride and it was so much fun to see how much she's grown since the last time we saw her!

As I mentioned in a previous post, I was naked without camera all weekend long. I realized toward the end of their visit that we DID still have our smaller camera, so we got a couple quick shots with that camera before they left. But, overall, we were sans pictures for the weekend.

Nonetheless, we had a terrific visit.

Jill held the baby from time to time to give me a break. It was glorious.

Jon held the baby from time to time while Eric looked on. It was glorious.

Jill and I pampered ourselves to a relaxing and much needed pedicure. It was glorious.

Amelia laughed like she's never laughed before, because she's never seen big crazy furry hyper dogs before.

She also spent most of her time doing laps around the train table - walking only in one direction, just like Logan did at that age! :)

Logan wasn't so keen on sharing his toys with baby Amelia however, since she liked to put everything in her mouth and got them quite wet.

We spent a lot of time hanging out, catching up on our lives, eating good food, playing games and making our kids laugh and giggle.

We visited the Monterey Bay Aquarium on Sunday where Logan got to see lots of fishies and sea horses and jelly fish and sharks - BIG sharks mind you, that go RAWWWWWWR! Amelia had a great time as well. Callum ate and slept the entire time.

Come to think of it, he did that pretty much the entire weekend.

When we got home, Amelia practiced walking with Logan's old walker.

And we noticed Callum's feet (6 wks old) are almost as big as Amelia's (8 mths old!).

We had a fantastic long weekend with them and can't wait to see the Cables again soon.
