eating, smiling, celebrating and more eating with my brother on his 40th birthday weekend and meeting my gorgeous new neice and seeing her lovely mum in ireland. i did do lots of trampolining with my nephews coaching me in acrobatic moves (which i could not do in a million years by the way!), so hopefully that will counter all that delicious pie i ate! i flew over with stan and then our parents arrived the following day. i was pretty nervous about travelling on a plane on my own with my little one, but it was really fine and now i feel like i can handle anything! we had such a great time hanging out with our 3 wonderful nephews and stan was absolutely taken with all of them. and it's so nice to take a peek into the everyday lives of loved ones that you don't get to see that often.
at easter in their house, they all decorate eggs and hang them from a branch above their table. then as time goes on, all the eggs are removed and replaced by birds that they have made. what a lovely idea.
