Gavin and I tagged along with Don to a work conference in Orlando... our hotel was near the Disney parks, but we decided Gavin was a bit young to take in all of the hoopla so we just hung out by the pool, took walks and enjoyed the sunshine (and his naps finally allowed me to read my book club book for this month called "Queen of Fashion: What Marie Antoinette wore to the revolution," interesting stuff about how she used clothing to achieve power but her devotion to clothes also ended up being her undoing. One thing I learned: she never said "Let them eat cake," that is a myth apparently). It was hard to come back home to the rapidly approaching winter, but we are glad to be home, too!

We spent the weekend in New Jersey for the wedding of Don's brother Chris and our new sister-in-law Kathy! We were so happy to help them celebrate and really enjoyed meeting some of their friends we had heard so much about. We had a great time seeing family we don't get to see often and Don had a great toast as the best man.
We also went to see Don's hometown of Bridgewater, N.J., where we drove by his two old houses, his church, the A&P where he bagged groceries and the schools he went to. (Gavin missed out as he was napping in the car). It was Gavin's first plane ride and he did pretty well considering we did not have direct flights and he was especially worn out on the way home after the busy weekend. We learned a lot of things about traveling with him that will help us in the future! And when we got home, he was so excited to be back and see his room and his toys and his dog, he was squealing and giggling with delight : )
