Quite the traveler

Boy, have we been busy! This past Thursday Carter and I flew to Reno with Auntie Lindsey to be at Gramma Cupcake's big grand opening of 41 Taylor ( The flight was full so Carter had to share a seat. Auntie did a great job getting him to sleep for a little bit.

That night we got to spend time with Carter's favorite cousin. She barely weighs in at 12 pounds at 5 1/2 months and is the cutest thing! Here they are standing.... bit of a height difference.

They also played with some toys. She had a little doll, he had a football. Like a big bully, he kept taking her toys. She was so in awe of the huge baby that she let him have them. He also sucked on her feet (bet he'll love to be reminded of that when he's 10).

41 Taylor is amazing - as is the other Tracey's dad. Carter just took to him right off the bat playing with his eye glass case and even giving him a hug!

The Grand Opening was a huge success and Carter, Auntie and I got home Saturday night very tired, but the story doesn't end there... The next morning, a very tired Carter slept all the way to Grandma and Grandpa's house for our first Roberts Family Reunion! Carter was the youngest, but only by 3 months (I'll post some photos with him and his more distant cousin when I get them).

What an amazing family! Grandpa Roger was one of 7 children and this reunion included all the branches that stemmed from his grandpa Omar's branch (I think Grandpa Roger's Grandpa had 6 kids?? and each of those branches had a minimum of 4 kids). So... it is a big family!! Carter is so lucky to come from such a large family. This upcoming weekend we'll attend the annual Kale Campout which is great-grandma Lois' family reunion and ALWAY SO MUCH FUN!
