New Jersey Family Time

After saying goodbye to Cozumel in early March, Ryan and I headed to the east coast to see my sister and her family in suburban New Jersey.  Being away in Korea meant we had missed their recent trips to Oregon.  I hadn't seen the twins since the summer they were born and Ryan hadn't met them at all.  He also hadn't seen my older niece and nephew since our wedding in 2009.  They have continued to grow into little people, keeping everyone entertained with their humorous antics.  
We were looong overdue for visit.
Snow greeted us our first morning there, a stark contrast to the sunny warm weather we'd left behind in Cozumel.  

Our weekend with the fam was split between time at home...

a trip to a neighborhood park...


and an outing to the zoo.

Between playing ball with Leo, coloring with Harry and Lucy and "getting my hair done" by Ellie, those kids kept us busy all week.  It's so much fun to see their little personalities emerging and evolving. 

During our time there, we were also treated to a fabulous dinner out in New York City with my sister and her wife, where we ate, drank, and were merry.  


These two both recently turned 40, so there was obviously celebrating to be done. 
"Full" doesn't really begin to describe my feeling at the end of that meal.

So much fun.

Until next time, New Jersey.
