our US trip

In October we headed back to the US to see our families. Our kids were absolutly wonderful on both of the plane rides. I am grateful that flying doesn't bother them at all. Auburn was SO excited to have her own seat and meal. Coming back we had some pretty bad jet lag. Conley, my super sleeper, decided that he wanted to go to bed at 2am for about four days, and Simon had to jump on a plane to Italy the day after we returned (we didn't know that was going to happen). It all made for an exciting return.
The pictures are in the wrong order. I always accidentally do this, sorry. Just so you know, we started in DC with my family, drove to New York to meet up with Simon's family. Thanks to Brent and Kirsten for letting us crash with you in DC and thanks to Paula for letting all of us share your wonderful studio in New York. After we spent a day in NY, we drove up to Conneticut to see the leaves with Scott, Sasha and Seth. The leaves were in their peak and it was just beautiful!

Grandma and Grandpa Hill

I'm a little behind in my blogging. The past two months have been a whirlwind, and I am finally catching up. Simon has been on three different buisness trips, we have taken two trips and we have had two different sets of visitors. That being said, Grandma and Grandpa Hill came to visit in September. They came on Auburn's second birthday. They also did some traveling on their own while they were here, I think about five different countires in all. Here are some of the pictures

Conley and Grandpa

We hiked up to the Andecht monestary for this beautiful view and to see this church in side.

Simon and Brad were able to take in a game at Allianz Arena

Here's Grandma cutting Auburn's birthday cake

Thanks for coming to visit Grandma and Grandpa, come back anytime!

new pics

Last weekend we took some more pictures of the kids. Here are a few of my favorites.

Happy 2nd Birthday Auburn!!!

Well, last week my little girl turned two! I feel like we were just bringing her home from the hospital. We have been helping her understand what a birthday is. When we would question her she would respond to the appropriate questions. Her answers were "get a present", "eat cake, chocolate cake" and after her birthday she told me that "Auburn needs to cool down the candles again." I guess she wants another birthday. On Sunday we had another cake and she thought it was her birthday again, it was really cute!
Grandma and Grandpa Hill were actually able to be here for her birthday this year. Their plane arrived in the afternoon and we celebrated in the evening. Conley decided the party wasn't for him and actually slept through the entire thing.

She was more interested in eating cake than smiling for a picture.
She was spoiled rotten by her Grandparents and Aunts and Uncles, thanks for the presents!
