In the Land O' Lakes
Hey everybody! Well, I know it's been awhile since i've written, but that's because I just on my first-ever trip! I went with Mommy and Daddy to Minnesota, to visit Grandma and Grandpa and a whole bunch of relatives I was meeting for the first time!
I got to fly on a plane for the first time, and Mommy really appreciated how cooperative I was, in both directions.
Once we landed we went right to Grandma and Grandpa's house- where Daddy grew up- and I got to spend some time with Grandma and Grandpa, who I really missed a lot.
Of course, it was also great to see Aunt Amy, and meet Jason for the first time too!
The occasion of the trip was my cousin Sophie's Bat Mitzvah, and not only did she do a great job, but she was nice enough to include a blessing for me in the service! Mazel tov, Sophie!
Anyway, all in all it was a pretty fun time. Here are some highlights:
Me with my great-grandmother, Grandma Barb.
Cousin Jessi and I.
Cousin Maddie and I at her sister Sophie's party.
Auntie Bonnie and I.
Me with my Elmo kippah, which Aunt Debra just got me in Israel. I know it's big- Daddy said it looks like a beret!
The door of Grandpa's office. Recognize some of the pictures?
Me with my new friend Isaac, whose parents Jeff and Rose introduced us. He's not THAT much bigger than me, it's just the angle!
My cousin Sam, Mommy and me.
I'm back in Philadelphia now. Daddy stayed for a couple of extra days- something about a baseball game- but now he's back. But I'm excited to see Grandma and Grandpa and Amy and Jason again in just two weeks!
All right, time to nap again. But thanks for checking in, and nice to meet all of you who I saw in Minnesota! I'll leave you with a few more pictures from the last week:
Having my first drink, out with Poppop last week.
Taking a rest on the bench at my Uncle Jimmy's house.
