This year we traveled to Pennsylvania to visit Dan's family for Christmas. It was Caleb's first long distance trip and he did incredibly well!
We decided to leave early (early!) morning at 3am, and were able to get a little more than 1/2 way before Caleb woke up! Leaving so early meant that we arrived just before lunch time, which made the day seem super long, but allowed us to have more of the day to visit.
Caleb met his Aunt Kristin & Uncle Andrew for the first time.
I'm not sure who was more excited for this meeting!
The afternoon was spent ogling the baby and napping. Unfortunately, Caleb fell asleep minutes before we were going to leave for Christmas Eve service, so he and I stayed back while the others went to the service.
Christmas morning was a lovely mix of excitement and relaxation. Everyone was excited to see Caleb tear into his gifts. He loved every minute of it! As expected, he enjoyed the wrapping paper far more that the gifts themselves, but once we removed the paper, he had a great time playing with his new instrument set from Grammy & Poppy.
The next few days were filled with visits from family and friends, many whom had never met our little guy.
We are so thankful to have been able to travel this year and introduce our little guy to this side of the family. Caleb was such an amazing little traveler, happy and content much of the visit, and endured the nine hour car ride like a champ!
