Our first family trip

We have proof that Mom & Dad have not become agoraphobics. We took our first trip with Eric to Lake Wildwood (LWW- where Aaron's parents live). It was Eric's longest car ride, 3 hours, and he slept most of the ride.

On the way there we had to stop for a milk break, but on the way back he snoozed while Dad cruised. On the way out of town we stopped by the Fay residence to meet the daughter of Bobby and Calla, Nolan. (I can't believe we didn't take any photos). Beautiful family.

It was so nice to be with Grandma Linda and Grandpa Terry, so rejuvenating. I got to go on a few runs. I didn't even take my cell phone with me. Aaron got out in the boat with Grandpa.

Eric is quite social and really loved having more people around. Grandma Linda and I went on a walk with Eric and met Mary Claire (neighbor on the lake). Eric and Mary Claire charmed each other silly.

Uncle Sean and Aunt Courtney drove over from Chico for the day. They had not seen Eric since early October and were excited to visit with him. This was Uncle Sean's first time holding a baby, a natural. Eric took quite a liking to his Aunt and Uncle. Rocky, S & C's new puppy, also joined the excitement. Such a cute puppy. Eric was very curious about the puppy sounds coming from the box on the floor.

Eric and his Great Grandma Ruth also had their first introduction. They gave each other lots of smiles. Great Grandma has been keeping up with the blog and was so excited to see him that she thanked Linda for a wonderful night as she came in the door (in case she forgot to tell her when she left).

So a great trip with lots of socializing. Eric actually seemed a little bored when he got home as if to say "where are all the people?" It is so nice to let people start to really hang out and spend time with us again.
