This weekend we ventured out of Brooklyn, to upstate New York were we spent the weekend with my brother-in-law-to-be JC's family. I love The Powell family sooo stinkin' much and I am so appreciative that they invited myself and Sunny to enjoy the fall weather in their beautiful town.
The Powell's have over 3 acres of fresh green land complete with mountain views and a creek behind their home. Sunny would have been happy to just stay in the cozy house with all of the Da-hee's (doggies) but Beck-Beck and Don-Don had a very special pumpkin outing planned for her.
Sunny has an obsession with her Guncles, but her heart this weekend belonged to JC's sister, Jo-Jo. Jo-Jo is a teacher and has more energy than any woman I've ever met. She chased Sunny around, causing laughing fits and high powered crawling. My daughter was looking for her, pointing at her, and reaching for her. I think Jo-Jo could make a living here in Brooklyn as a baby wrangler. Mama's would flock to her and beg her to take their children and play with them and make them laugh till their belly hurt.
It is wonderful to watch our family grow. I love my Brother and JC so much, and I can honestly say that their relationship has expanded my heart and given my daughter a larger extended family. How blessed are Matt and I to have a child who is so welcomed and loved by so many. A million thank you's the Powell family for inviting us into their home and going out of their way to entertain Sunny and make us feel so at home.
