We visited Zane and Norma today so that Jon and the boys could meet little Aidan!
Everyone was completely smitten by the little guy - the first newborn that the boys have held/touched/seen in person! (Obviously Logan has seen Callum as a baby but he was so young when Callum was first born that he doesn’t remember it)
While holding Aidan, Callum asked me, “Can we keep him?” :)
I took a load of pics from our lovely visit, but here are some of the best!

Unfortunately, the boys weren't allowed onto the new family/baby floor to meet their baby cousin (they're too young), but we still made the most of our trip down to the South Bay, by visiting one of our favorites spots for dinner. 👍🏼

Me too, bud. Meeeee too. ❤️❤️❤️
He's holding his new little stuffy toy we got him (and Logan) from Iceland. We also got them a book which tells the story of these little monsters, but the short version (from the tag on this little guy) is this:
In the old days, when the people of Iceland still lived in turf houses with only oil lamps to light their homes, they often saw all kinds of strange creatures taking shape from the shadows of the flickering light. It is here where the life of the Skrimslis began. Iceland's nature, which is full of dynamic energy, gave them special powers. They loved their life and the people they lived with for generations, but as Iceland evolved, all homes were furnished with electricity which was too bright for the Skrimslis. To survive, they needed to flee the overbearing and luminous electric lighting. With sheer perseverance, they all moved to the lava fields, living in caves in a land they now call Lavaland, which is surrounded by the beautiful nature of Iceland. Instead of having to rummage through the garbage for food, they can now eat blueberries, pines, and other gourmet delicacies nature provides. The trolls in Iceland protect the Skrimslis from the dangers looming around them, and the elves are their special friends who know all of their secrets. If you ever meet a Skrimsli out in the lava fields, be sure to greet it. By greeting a Skrimsli, it will bestow on you a special sign of good luck and prosperity that will follow you in years to come.
We really had a fabulous time! Jon and I have already started chatting about when and how we could visit again, with the boys, to explore the rest of the country together.
Au revoir Iceland! 👋🏼🇮🇸 Until next time! ✌🏼
