Colton REALLY loves his mama, but Aunt Patty is a close second!
After three days in DC, we made the 2.5 hour drive to Norfolk, VA, to see Stephen and Rachael and their girls, Leah and Bekah. They had such a fun few days planned for us! We spent Thursday morning at their Botanical Gardens and splash park.
Bekah - because she's adorable
Leah, Bekah, and Caroline

Running and splashing
And then AK dressed up as a monarch butterfly
And Caroline swept up the playhouse
Ellie even got in on the splashing!
Heading home for great naps!
Friday morning, we went to a lovely beach on the Chesapeake Bay and enjoyed some sunshine.
This is how Eleanor spent quite a bit of the morning!
But then she woke up for a while!
All five girl cousins!
Eleanor (4.5 months), Bekah (18 months), Caroline (2), Anna Kate (4), Leah (5)
Friday evening we went out to a fun little pizza place and then enjoyed another splash park and some live music downtown.
Throughout the week, we of course enjoyed lots of baby snuggles!
Bekah enjoyed practicing her new big sisterly duties (baby Burgin is coming in just 6 weeks)!
Early Saturday morning, it was time to head back home. It's always sad to say goodbye to everyone, but we are so thankful for such a wonderful week!
