After our week at the coast and in Fresno, we headed back to the Bay area to fly out. But before we left, we were able to spend some more time with my sweet Gram. The boys were so good with her, and Jack actually sat on her lap for about 15 minutes!!
|Jack loving his great grandma|
|Happy Will with Great Grandma Alys|
|Grandma drinking in the both of the boys|
|Aunt Sharon, Gram, Jack, Will, me, Mom|
|My sweet Gram ... Alys, with her namesake, Alyson|
We spent our last night in California at my brother's place. He has the most incredible view of the San Francisco area I've ever seen!! His apartment is at the top of Russian Hill, and through his huge windows, you can see the WHOLE bay ... even Alcatraz!! It was so beautiful! The boys just sat looking out for the first 10 minutes after we got there!
|What do you think boys?|
|Daddy drinking in the view with the boys!|
|With Daddy and Uncle Aaron--|
bundled up against the light drizzle!
|What a hill!! You would sure get in shape here!|
|And notice that Daddy is pushing the stroller back up the hill--|
he's much stronger than mommy!
|The boys' own personal elevator!!|
|Facetiming with Auntie Kristen and Bella! So fun!|
I guess there are hundreds of them that live wild on the next hill over, but we had no clue that they came over to his hill too! So fun!
And finally, our flight home. Gigi accompanied us on this one, and boy was it nice to have an extra set of hands!! She kept the boys entertained and happy all through check in, which was so wonderful!
Remember the giant backpacks to carry the carseats?? Look at how huge they are ! But it sure is nice to have your hands free!!
After going through security, Will was so cuddly. I love these times!
Jack was hanging out with Daddy!
During the plane, we each had an aisle seat, so it was easy to pass the boys around! Justin sat behind my mom, and it was the cutest thing when he discovered his daddy was back there!
|I love you, Daddy!!|
|I love your ipad, Dad!|
|Will conked out on Gigi's lap for a good chunk of the trip,|
and I think she liked it!!
But we made it home all in one piece, and Grandpa was there waiting for us! And the boys were very happy to see him! Nothing but grins for their Grandpa!
What an amazing trip! It honestly just couldn't have been any better! We are so lucky and blessed to have such wonderful friends and family, and I was so happy that they all were finally able to meet the boys!
