Cash’s First Trip to Arlington

On Thursday, January 17th we left for a quick road-trip to Arlington so that we could hang out with Robin’s family.  This was our first time to meet our new nephew, Shepherd, and Cash’s first time to meet Aunt Fallon, Uncle Craig, and Great-Granddad and Great-Grandmom.  It is very difficult to find a time that we can get together with both of Robin’s siblings, spouses, and kids so when we have an opportunity we try to seize it!

We stayed from Thursday evening until Sunday afternoon.  Cash did amazingly well in the car on the way there and back.  He had a hard time sleeping while we were there but we survived!

Here is a blurry picture of Zane Emma, and Lylah playing with Pops’ iPad.  The adults kept commenting on “how times have changed!”  When I was a kid I’m pretty sure I wasn’t playing on an iPad with my cousins!

Foster shared an intimate moment with Grandmom… showing her “Bubba.”  Bubba used to be Emma’s baby doll but now he has claimed Bubba as his own.
