Family Time

Ryan caught this great photo of Oliver being still for a split second

We got home last night from our trip to Anchorage and Palmer. We spent a lot of time with Ryan's family and enjoyed some beautiful weather (I even got sunburned)! Our nephew Oliver turned two while we were there. It was so fun to be able to spend time with him and get to know his little personality.

We babysat him while his parents were at work on Tuesday for three hours. He was tons of fun to play with and really easy-going. His two favorite words are "yeah!" and "thanks!"  and he always says them with a lot of enthusiasm. There is nothing cuter than helping him with something simple like putting on his shoes and then hearing "thanks!" in his tiny little two-year-old voice.

On Sunday we all spent the day enjoying the sun at Ryan's parent's house in Palmer. Oliver ran around the yard non-stop playing with all the cool toys his grandparents have for him - a tractor, a police car, a tricycle, a mini wheel barrow. Ryan's parents see Oliver almost every week and he adores them. He can't quite pronounce "grandma" and "grandpa" yet so he calls them "Namma" and "Dappa." It's pretty cute.

We managed to take these great family photos while we were there. I am VERY happy with how they turned out. I thought with so many of us and a two-year-old, I'd just be happy if we all had our eyes open and Oliver was in the photo. Instead we're all smiling, except for Oliver, but he is sitting still and looking at the camera and you can't ask for much more than that with a two-year-old!
