A Second Visit To Michigan

Sean, Izzy, and Bubbe went back for another visit to Michigan. Both Mommy and Daddy had lots of work to do and were relieved to know that Halley and Maya could spend lots of quality time with Uncle Seanie, Aunt Izzy and Bubbe.

Maya loves to eat fish and she got plenty of it. She had nova and bagels both Saturday and Sunday for breakfast and she had a very special Sushi plate for lunch on Sunday. Everyone agrees Maya is a great eater!

We visited a farm very close by and saw lots and lots of animals. Halley didn't know what to think but Maya loved feeding the alpacas carrots. We had a hayride too.

On Sunday, Maya, Sean and Bubbe took a hike in the woods nearby. It was very hilly and Maya asked Sean if he needed help getting the jogging stroller over some tree roots. She said, "Come on Bubbe, this is called teamwork."

Maya and Hailey Return

Daddy wanted to meet some old friends for the weekend here in Pittsburgh so Maya and Hailey came along for the visit.

We had dinner at the loft on Friday and Saturday at Pupup's. Maya and I shared my big bed. We played with great new colors of play dough and our house game in my closet. Maya has a new game with Pupup called MoonWalk and enjoyed kicking the soccer ball in the loft hall with Jimmie and Stevie.

Hailey worked on her signs and on Sunday started waving bye-bye at all the appropriate times. She also is very good at getting up and down on the floor and trying some independent standing for moments at a time.

It was a short visit but great to have them back in The Burg.

Our First Visit to Michigan

Dear Maya,
Auntie Iz, Uncle Seanie and I made our first trip to visit you in Ann Arbor. It was interesting to see all of your things rearranged to fit into a different house. Your room looks perfect!

We did lots of fun things. Friday we had a nice dinner in town and a walk and tasted some great ice cream. Saturday morning we had your favorite bagels and fish and took a walk to the play park at the end of your street where we meet some neighbors and even some people also visiting from Pittsburgh. We went to the farmer's market and had a picnic by the river. We played with your bears and gave them all squirt-bottle baths. For dinner we had really good American food at Zingerman's Roadhouse. Sunday we went to the Botanical Gardens and then lunch before we had to say goodbye and head back to Pittsburgh.

It was a very sweet reunion and we promise to come back again soon. We miss you.

Love you,
Bubbe
