These pictures below are from our visit to Baltimore this year. My mom is from Baltimore, so there is lots of family to visit up there, especially since she is one of 8 children.
When we visit we usually stay with my Uncle Larry and Aunt Sallie, here's Uncle Larry playing with Bethany.
Here’s Levi’s First Trip
up to Baltimore, which was for Thanksgiving
. We had a lot of fun
then and we did again this time with another little one.
Bethany was slightly younger than Levi on his first trip.
But she liked playing on the hard wood floors just as much.
Levi is obviously a lot different, and spent some time coloring with Uncle Larry.
We went to visit my granny a few days before her birthday party. We got a four generations picture with all of us.
My grandmother just turned 90 and is doing pretty well for that age, though she's had some falls that make her nervous to move around much.
Bethany made herself at home in Aunt Carol's chair.
Levi couldn't let her get all the attention, so he hopped in too.
We have pictures of Levi being held by Barb as an infant and now we have one with Bethany. She does a great job with kids.
My cousin Thomas hates his picture being taken, so this required stealth and got me glared at afterwards.
My Aunt Doris is always ready to hold a baby.
My cousins Liz and Laura held Bethany and Isabella for this shot. Isabella is my second cousin, daughter of Christina.
Adriana on Isabella's lap, next to Thomas and Levi.
Thomas obviously didn't notice Kendra taking pictures.
Levi was out with the big kids I'm sure talking their ears off.
Lots of cousins
I'm not sure how Levi talked them into this
He had a lot of fun
He loves playing with all the big kids.
There were a lot of kids
This is Hannah, who is obviously very tolerant of 5 year olds riding piggy back style
Most of the adults stuck inside with the air conditioning.
Granny and her cake. I think that is Granny's childhood friend Betty at the table. I am sure my mom can correct me.
The crowd watching
Singing happy birthday.
Bethany was a trooper with all those people around.
Hanging out with her cousin.
Aunt Carol got to spend some time with her and even change a dirty diaper.
Bethany enjoyed her lunch.
Raymond was hanging out with Levi, who was playing games on his leap pad. Obviously Thomas saw the camera this time.
Levi had a very interesting Phineas and Ferb game
We had a lot of cars there, my family is definitely not small.
My Uncle Kenny, Aunt Linda and Bethany
Isabella joining in.
Another 4 generations picture, Granny, Aunt Doris, Christina and Isabella.
My mom got some time snuggling with Levi.
My mom and her 7 siblings all together for the first time in 15 years
Its hard to coordinate 8 family's schedules and travel to get everyone together often
Its also hard to get them all to hold still for a picture
My mom, the oldest is bossing them around through most of this.
Levi is downstairs watching TV with another cousin.
They were quite content chilling in the basement.
All 8 with Granny.
Bethany had a good time playing with everyone
Learning to clap with Aunt Janet
Still more pictures to come.
