Family time

Last weekend I made the long drive along the PA Turnpike out to Johnstown to visit my grandmother. The whole family was there and believe it or not, it's always a good time. I'm definitely fortunate that my family gets along so well and we enjoy spending time together. A trip to Johnstown usually involves chilling out in the backyard by the pool and this trip was pretty typical, including friends and cousins stopping by to say hi.

Leah was all about the bubbles and had a great time trying to catch them. We got Alex in the pool, but even with water wings, she didn't want to let go. I offered to teach her how to swim but she refused.

On Saturday we drove out to Pittsburgh to celebrate my aunt's 60th birthday. It was great to see her as well as some of my great aunts and cousins that I don't get to see very often. Sure, I could post pictures from the party, but really, this is the best one of the bunch:

Precious. Oh, and little Leah is just too cute!

For her birthday, I knit my aunt up a quick little airy scarf from Last Minute Knitted Gifts in Rowan's Kidsilk Haze that she can wear to work. She loved it and proceeded to wear it the rest of the day even though it was 80 degrees out.

Finally, everyone has a theory who Leah looks like. I think it's the most common conversation when you are around babies. So, I think she takes after my brother Eric most of the time. My mom says she looks like me. I never saw it. But, then I saw the pictures of Leah I took w/ the bubbles and thought of a b&w picture of me from when I was 12 months and I do see some of the similarities. Do you?
