This is our newest nephew and godson, Daniel.
Dave and I just got back from a five day trip to Virginia to hangout with the Pickles. We spent most of the time kid wrangling, with a few real conversations along the way. We traveled for Daniel’s Baptism, and so did Dave’s family. So the Baptism turned into a mini family reunion. It was great to visit with everyone, although through all the kid chaos I feel like I missed an important adult discussion somewhere.
The Pickles kiddos are some of the sweetest and most well behaved kids that I’ve ever had the pleasure to be around. Bravo parents. Someday I will call you and beg you on bended knees for your secret sauce.
And every time the kids see me, they warm up to me a bit more. It’s lots of fun to be “Aunt Katie”.
Our summer seems to be turning into a whirlwind of travel. Tomorrow we’re heading to a college friend’s wedding. We’re looking forward to the wedding, and the mini college reunion that comes with, but I am starting to worry about the extra pounds and all that maturity (ha!) that we’ve gained since college. What will we have in common with friends from 10 years ago? Dave assures me that everyone else has had 10 years to change too!
