NC Trip

Many of you may have noticed that I have been MIA for several weeks. I am going to try to catch everyone up on the many adventures we have had during the month of October. On Saturday the 18th, Bronwen, Lila, and I boarded an airplane and headed to N.C. to attend a baby shower for my dear friend Jessica. Well, truthfully, I was the only one attending the shower, but we used the trip as an excuse to spend some time with Mimi and Dja Dja.

While in Shelby, the girls stayed busy:

Making cookies with Mimi (Bronwen is busily cleaning off the spoon of course):
Learning about personal finances with Dja Dja:
Experiencing autumn and jumping in leaves:
Modeling a warm coat (not many chances to do this in LA):
Being a witch, even if it was slightly unintended:
Basking in the sun:
Insisting on wearing stripes all over because "they match" and playing at the park:
Roughing in in nature:
Spinning around on the carousel:
and taking her first train ride.
Aunt Jana also joined us, and I would love to put up pictures of us too, but I look pretty terrible in them so they were vetoed. (Sorry Jana) Lila became Aunt Jana's little best friend, and I have to say has seemed a bit sad since we've been back. I have put a picture of Aunt Jana in her crib which seems to have cheered her a bit.

Looks like a blast!

I'm so sad that I didn't not get to visit! Maybe next time?
Do we have Bronwen in the same "witch" pose?
Mimi is too cute playing in the leaves, and B's jacket is pretty stylin'. And I LOVE Lila's shirt.

I have a photo of Lila in my crib too. *sniff sniff*
