We're Back!!

Well, Zachary got to fly on his first airplane! He did so good. He made lots of friends and was accused of flirting by a few ladies - I'm going to have to talk to him about that someday.
It was a long day of traveling, but it was all worth it when we were greeted by my parents (Dada and Gui Guis) at the airport in Connecticut! Zachary hadn't seen them since Christmas. Then we went back to the house they share with my sister's family where he met his Aunt Sonya, Uncle Matt, cousin Nicole, and cousin Tommy for the first time!!
The 3 cousins had so much fun playing together - as much as possible for 3 years, 10 months, and 6 months. Nicole shared her chair with Zachary as he sat proudly in his new throne.
Tommy shared his Johnny Jump Up and Zachary LOVED IT!!!
He bounced for hours!
We all got to go to the mall, as my Mom had this week off from school.
The 3 kids had a blast on the carousel. Zachary got to ride on a horse that went up and down, which may have been even more fun for Mommy as I got to yell wee for the full 2 minutes.

Colie (as I call Nicole) picked up some crowns to share with her happy meal. Don't worry - Zachary only had a bottle for lunch.

What a great day we had together!!

We were grateful to be able to see so many friends on this trip home. Mrs. Tomkiel and Mrs. Ferriss came over to meet Zachary. Stacey's friend Christy came to visit too! On Friday we drove up to Gordon to visit Stacey's friend Tricia and meet her son Dylan. He's already 14 months and walking circles around Zachary.

On Saturday Zachary got to meet Stacey's cousin Scott and his family. They were so kind to drive down to New Hampshire from Maine just to see us!

Then we got to visit Great Dada and take him out to lunch. He had been in the hospital recently and we were so glad to see him doing better.

We are home now and enjoying every minute of Daddy time!

So glad you are blogging! We've really enjoyed seeing the pictures of you and your family! Zachary just keeps getting cuter and cuter!

Thanks for the pics! I'm so glad you had fun on your trip! It's definitely different flying with a baby, eh?
