Babies and Birthdays

This last weekend we traveled to the Tri-cities to visit my brother Eric and his family. They added a new addition to their family one week ago, and we wanted to go see baby Simon. Joel and I were quite nervous to drive a long distance with Ava, because she absolutely hates being in the car. She surprised us though and did quite well. She only screamed a few times, and we only had to stop a few times to let her out of her seat.

Simon was adorable. He weighed exactly the same amount as Ava when she was born, and I could not believe how small he looked and felt. It is amazing how fast our little baby is growing. I cannot believe she is not a newborn anymore.
Here is a picture of Baby Simon and Ava.

Maveric was not feeling well, so I did not get any great pictures of him. Hopefully next time we see him he will be feeling better.
Also, this last weekend we celebrated my mom and brother David's birthdays. Here are some pictures of Ava and the birthday boy and girl.

It was a busy weekend - to say the least. But we had tons of fun being with family and loved ones.

I love the picture of Ava and Dave. So cute! Simon is pretty cute too. It must be in the Sobotta genes to have such cute kids.

Jen--your little girl is so beautiful. Head over to my blog for pics......Tell your mom she looks so great. I haven't seen any of your family in forever. We must get together. You are invited over for dinner if ever you are passing by my house on the way to Tri-Cities again! We bought my parent's house a few years back.
