Easter with Uncle Chris (oh and Aunt Gigi, Grandma MiMi, Brian, and the dogs)

Scott has been so extremely busy for the past couple weeks with work and school that I thought I would go away with the boy for a few days to give him some time to catch up on things.  Our journey started on the Thursday before easter weekend.  First, I brought Henry to playgroup to try and tire him out so he would sleep in the car.  Then we took off (in our new car :)) on our 3 hour drive to Albany, NY to visit with my sister.  I bought a new Dora DVD to try and keep baby boy happy.  As most of you know, Henry has hated the car since he was 2 weeks old.  So anything over a 30 min drive can be a bit draining on us all.  He did awesome though (on the way down).  I <3 Dora and Cheetos.
On our way.
Henry truly LOVES his Aunt Gigi.  They share a special A-frame bond. :)
We made it to Aunt Gigi's!  It was really nice to see my sister and for Henry to spend time with his doting Aunt.  The night was rough though.   I slept with him but he woke up very scared, wondering where on earth he was and it took a few hours to get him back to sleep.  Luckily, my sister is awesome.  

Looking like a big boy these days!

Hiding out at Gigi's.

Then, on Friday it was time to head on over to my younger brothers place in Pittsfield, Massachusetts to meet up with grandma and Brian.  I say "Easter with Uncle Chris" because really it's what it seemed like.  Henry adores his uncle.  And all he wanted to do was be with him every moment.  If Chris were to go anywhere in the apartment or outside, you would hear Henry hollering "Chris.... Uncle Chris.... Chris", sooo very cute.  I must say between my brother spoils his nephew like no other! :)

Hanging with Kota.
Cheeseballs and cartoons with Uncle Chris.

Henry thought 5am was a good time to wake up while visiting.  So,  my bro and I decided to take Henry out to breakfast at "Daddy's Diner" to not wake the house. :)

Good morning grandma mimi.  Henry pretty much asks me on a daily basis to go to "grandma mimi's house".  

Nap ahhhh.
This is an easter outfit my older brother, Mike wore when he was 2 years old (circa 1981).
Lots of laughs together.

Reading together.

Toast in the morning together.

My mom brought the easter basket that I used growing up.  

Slinky... too bad Kota ate it haha.
So, that was our trip in photos.  We then headed back pretty early on Easter Day to spend the day with my hard-working hubby.  And, lucky Henry got 2 easter baskets.... The 2nd that I had filled with fun goodies that Scott gave him when he walked in the door. :)
