East Texas Weekend

We took a quick trip to visit our families last weekend. Meredith's first little miniature road trip; she did great, and actually slept most of the way there and back! (Bottle feeding does have its benefits, feeding while in the car seat is possible. And she takes a pacifier, another big help in the car.)

Blueberries are in season, and they are Otto's favorite food so Chris really wanted to take him picking. He's been before but this time was old enough to understand what we were doing.
He thought it was fantastic! He was picking them by the handful, not paying any attention to color, and shoveling them into his mouth.
Mmmm! Delicious!
Sadly, our picking was cut short when I stepped on a nest of ground hornets. Thankfully they didn't sting either one of the babies.

The rest of our visit was filled with lots of swimming and hanging out with some of our favorite people. Meredith perfected her flirting skills on her Uncles, and Otto hit the pool no less than four times.
My Mom has several little suits with a built in life jacket. They were very reassuring when Otto was out near the pool, the boy has no fear! But when he tried to climb out he would got high centered like a little turtle:)

Even Addy came to visit and spent some time in the water. :)
 All in all a very fun trip! I'm glad we went:)

Sidenote: While I was sorting through these pictures, deciding which to post, Otto was sitting in my lap. He kept trying to 'Hold her?' whenever Minky or Sam popped up on the screen:)
