We had so much fun on our trip. Sydney was finally able to meet P-ma, Uncle Grant, Papa Dave, and many members of our extended family. Thursday we took Sydney to my mom's office so that she could meet my mom's coworkers, and Friday we met Casey and her daughter Cori at the mall. Cori played at the indoor playground while Casey held Sydney and we all visited, and then we decided (out of nowhere!) to get Sydney's ears pierced. (Well, it wasn't entirely out of nowhere. Casey had Cori's ears pierced at the mall's Merle Norman, so it seemed logical to do it with Casey's recommendation and support!) Sydney cried, of course, but was over it in five minutes, and the new earrings haven't bothered her since! They look beautiful, but Chet thinks they make her look more bald. (Speaking of bald, Sydney is growing more hair very quickly, but it's blond, making her appear as bald as ever!) Friday was also Sydney's first time to go swimming, and she loved it! She loved leaning back in the water and kicking and splashing...she was exhausted that night!

Post-Swim Rest with Didi
On Saturday we went to my dad's house and Sydney was able to meet my Uncle Starkey, Aunt Sheila, cousins Starla and Shelby, great Aunt Pat, cousin Joni, and cousin Taylor. The house was full of great food and great company, resulting in a great time!
On Sunday Chet and I left Sydney with Didi and Papa Dave and went to the movies to see "Date Night", then we all met at Pappasito's afterwards for my yearly Mexican food fix. Sadly we had to leave the next day, Monday, but we had a wonderful time! Sydney and I will be back for Christmas!
