First Trip North!

Back in August (another late post!), Hudson took his first plane ride north to visit with Grandpa & Grandma and many other friends and family. Many had not met him yet, so it was so fun for us to show off our handsome, precious boy! ;) Here are some pictures from our trip...I'll let the pictures tell the story!

First Plane Ride
He did so great! Going and coming! We thankfully had great "seatmates" that did not mind us having a little tagging along...whew! No blowouts, no smelly fluids or releases of any kind! Could not have been a better experience!

We started the trip with a "Sip and See" for everyone to meet Hudson. We had a great time and Hudson LOVED all of the attention! He's a charmer!

 Fun Times with Grandma!
These two had a ball with each other! Hudson loved playing with Grandma on the beach with his sand toys, "driving" the seadoo, and he loved the little red wagon  - especially when Grandma pulled him in it. He loved for Grandma to push him in the stroller too!

 Fun Times with Grandpa!
Hudson had so much fun with his Grandpa too! Hudson loved having a buddy to watch Mickey Mouse with and to play with his toys with! He loved walking on the beach with his Grandpa and getting in Lake MI with him! These two spent lots of quality time together and had many great "talks" ;)

 Other Fun Pictures from the trip!

We had a wonderful time in MI and we thank Grandpa and Grandma for the wonderful week and time we had!
