Back to the motherland

I'll be sharing a few photos from our recent trip back to Ohio. We got to play with babies.

And little boys. Did you know they make electronic hamsters? Brilliant. They have as much personality as a real hamster (e.g. zero), and they live longer. Max and Danny are going over their collection with Tom.

The kids really get into their food.

My cousin and her husband made the rustic table. Note the contrasting glossy chandelier with 'tennis bracelet' accents.

My uncle's grilled fajitas. Yum.

My aunt's raspberry pie made with berries from her backyard and garnished with berries and mint leaves.

Baby Brock demonstrating safe Oreo eating techniques.

Oreo, post-Brock.
