We arrived at my Grandparents’ house Wednesday afternoon and left Friday morning. I stayed at my aunt and uncle’s house at night since they have a pack n play and things set up for little ones. Though I missed staying at my grandparents', I think this was a better setup for us. Plus, I was able to sleep on an actual bed instead of an air mattress. It's hard to pass that up!
Thanksgiving was very busy. My uncle dropped Rit and I off at my grandparents' house that morning, and we had lunch Thanksgiving lunch there, and then went back to my aunt and uncle’s house for dessert. Rit met his six of his 2nd cousins. The oldest one is 15 years old, and the youngest is 9 months old. In fact, 3 of them were born within a year of each other; 4 if you include Rit. He played with them a lot, and even made friends with the only other boy his age there (of the 7 there: 4 girls and 3 boys). He fell in love with the cars and track my aunt and uncle had out for all of them. He didn't spend much time attached to me, which I was worried about, since we were in a new place surrounded by new people. I am very lucky that he is able to warm up to new people and make new friends easily.
I had a great time seeing my cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents again.
